Hi
Had my 500 Abarth for 3 weeks now and love it. After 6 years of ford zetec s diesel motoring (which was a great car just boring to drive) i now have something to look forward to everyday. Bought from SG Petch in York who was first class. 2 year old in pearlescent white, black leather, climate control, 17" polished alloys plus other extras. Looking forward to owning this car. Not seen any around where i live either so getting quite a few stares from people!

There are plenty in that bit of the world, and not unheard of for random invasions of southern cars to the area as well  :wave:

Enjoy  :thumb:

if any of the locals have their car booked in for a saturday morning we tend to meet up at the dealers and go out for breakfast at sainsburys, pretty informal sort of do, just watch out for a mention in the meets threads :thumb:

Hello
We tend to Go to Petch on a Saturday morning around 9.30. We usually meet up when someone is having an oil change service or warranty work.
Jonny likes us to drink all his coffee ;D. We usually go to sainsbury's just down the road for breakfast. I will let you know when we are going again.

Lol must admit the roads around Beal, Birkin and haddelsy are pretty good! Single track roads that are pretty quiet but are a great drive!
