A500C getting blasted about in Belgium
« on: May 06, 2011, 08:43:06 pm »
Hi, I'm, Greg, based in Belgium but I come from Glasgow originally.

I vowed to never buy a new car again and I've spent a good few years running a couple of older cars, doing all the work myself. Lack of time force me to give up one of them and I wanted something fun that is good for thrashing around in and would impress my two wee boys.

Well, I've got a nice shiny new 500C tucked up in my garage after thrashing it around Brussels for the last week. I like it - a lot.

I nearly didn't buy it after trying it out with the weird transmission controls but I've got the hang of it and it is brilliant. I'm used to quite lairy old Saab turbos and I was worried that the A500 would be too restrained. I was wrong, it is the business.

I'll post  a pic after I've cleaned the flies off it.Its LHD obv, but the trim is the same except I've got a wee slot for a satnav.

Cheers

Greg
