Greetings from South Somerset!
« on: July 31, 2021, 04:04:41 pm »
We took delivery of our 68 plate Turismo in Campovolo Grey on June 1st, replacing a 500S the daughter was given.
It's got the red exterior pack and red leather seats so is nice and colourful inside and out( but no Abarth door stripe)! Still some warranty on it so will get it serviced and MOT'd at the dealer nearby in September just in case there are any issues that they will pick up on.
Unfortunately it was supplied with Rubber Mats but have replaced them with the black half leather ones and also a red Abarth tailgate strap. Apart from the dashcam that is the extent of my mods.
The roads around my district must be the worst in England for the unforgiving suspension ( I did read all the reviews) but it's still a hoot to drive.
This car is theoretically my wife's but she has not driven it yet...my other car ( as the sticker says) is a Fiat 500X Multiair which feels a bit tame in contrast to the Abarth.
Having had Alfas I always used to wave at other Alfas and will continue to wave at other Abarths.

    Have you given your wife the option of driving yet? :whistle:
