Finally I have an Abarth!
« on: March 07, 2015, 09:20:43 pm »
Hello All,
Hello All,

I thought I would introduce myself after having ordered my first Abarth after owning 3 Fiat 500's.

500 1.2 Lounge in red with chrome A bar and black leather
500c 1.2 Lounge in white with red roof and red leather
500 1.2 Lounge Red with black cloth

I went in planning to buy the 595 Turisimo, but came out with a better deal on the 595 Competizione . I've gone for record grey with natural leather (tan) Sabelt seats and chrome mirrors. We are also having the dashboard replaced for a carbon fibre look with a rear quarter panel Abarth badge mounted where the 500 logo was. Hopefully it should look good!
Expecting her end of this month, can't wait!!!!!!!  ;D

    Hi mate and welcome  :), there are some good deals on the comp now the 180 bhp version is due soon, good time to buy if your not too bothered about the extra 20 bhp, the turismo is staying the same as you are probably aware.
