Another Newbie!
« on: December 05, 2008, 08:54:34 pm »
Hi everyone, my name is Stuart and I live in Essex.  I work for the London Fire Brigade and currently own and drive a Seat Leon FR TDI which has been a fantastic car.  Amazing performance for a diesel but... after my 6th Seat its time for a change and I have always like the new 500 since its arrival and now the Abarth brand has got involved I'm afraid its a must!! Deposit has been down since August and hoping to get the Esseesse version with a few extras... well it would be rude not to!  ;)  Seems to be a great forum with lots of info which everyone knows is hard to come by at the moment.  Still fingers crossed hopefully we will be able to see it in the flesh very soon!  8)  Look forward to some chats soon!

Cheers Stu

    personally i feel the white is the way to go! ... i didnt realise there was 2 whites available!?!? any way on my agp i have gone for white and cloth seats rather than the leather. i just didnt like them as much plus theres the annoying thing with in the summer there burning hot and in the winter there like sitting on an ice cube! o' and id also advise the red abarth stripe if you go for white.... i wish i had ordered mine with em now! :P

    with reguards to the AGP, a white car and white ss wheels - needs to be broken up else its a little over kill.... im sure the same applys for the 500 !!! :P

    Welcome stu! Good to have you here. I love the 500A in funk white myself. Think it looks totally stunning!

    Im-mia, check this link for funk white colour.. https://www.abarthforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,160.15.html

    Picture down the bottom of page two. You get a lot more choice on colours, stripes etc with a 500A compared to a GPA.
    Nothing is like an ABARTH
    Size, shape, speed and SPIRIT

    ah yes that does look quite nice actually!

    as for the the colour choice / stripes etc - i guess this is just like the fiat equivilents. there is fare more to choose from on the fiat 500 over the fiat grande punto.
