Hello!
« on: February 17, 2009, 03:32:03 pm »
Hi there,

Just thought I'd introduce myself as this is the first time I've been on the forum.

I actually work in an Abarth dealership as the Abarth specialist/sales controller and therefore love to hear the great comments on the car. I've been driving a 500 Esseesse as my company car for a few days now and am blown away!

Remortgage your house or do whatever, but everyone should own one!

Keep up the positive comments!!

Ben

    Hey folks,

    Thanks for all the welcomes and suchlike!

    So far I've not been able to have a real look around the forum (these damn popular Abarths keeping me busy all day!), but in the coming weeks I'll try to spend more time on here.

    Nice to see some Research customers on here too!

    ...and yeah, I was tying to get your kit number 1mmortal...you're a hard man to get hold of!!  :)

    Welcome Ben!  :wave:

    How you finding the SS?

    Hmmm...maybe I'm getting old, but I think I prefer the standard A500! (I  can hear the gasps of astonishment!)

    Maybe it's just my personal experience with the same car before and after, but it just doesn't seem to feel as stable. Seems to roll a bit more in the corners too which is the exact opposite of what you would expect. Probably just me tho!

    Apart from that it's awesome. The frantic acceleration is great and you can really suprise a few people who think it's just a little black 500 with fancy wheels! Brakes are good too, although it does induce the hazard light flashes on a more regular basis!!  ;D

    Overall i'd honestly say it's one of the most fun cars I've ever driven.

    Interesting that it seems to roll more...

    How is the ride affected by the kit? I intend to test the esseesse when my dealer has one of his 500s fitted with it.
    Have you got any pictures of the car? I've yet to see a black esseesse!

    Cheers  :thumb:
