A big hi from the Midlands
« on: October 02, 2015, 03:37:32 pm »
Hi Everyone, I currently own a modified Toyota Celica 190 and have decided to buy an Abarth 500 Esseesse for my next motor. I'll be looking forward to getting to know you all  ;D

    Hi D4VOW, I used to drive a Corolla T sport with same engine. You will find these engines much more user friendly, and economical too. No more waiting till just over 6k for something to happen lol.
    The seating position and height are a massive difference to your Celica tho, hope you get on with it  :thumb:

    2nd Abarth;Scorpion Black Competizione with tan leather and titanium alloys. ( std satin grey stripe, which i may or may not remove yet!)
    3rd Abarth;...who knows?!!

    Hi Laurie, you aren't kidding about the seating position, although that applies to virtually any car, you're literally lay down in the Celica so it's something I'll need to get used to with any car, the wait to 6k was always worth it though  ;D

    I'm just outside of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, off Junction 28 of the M1  :thumb:
