Hello everyone
« on: January 11, 2011, 03:33:20 pm »
Hi Everyone,my name is Tony currently I drive a 1.2 fiat 500 lounge in BNW with Italian roof and bonnet stripes,I've had her for nearly 2 yrs and been very happy.but mid life will soon be upon me so for my 50th birthday I'm going to treat myself to an A500 I will probably order it in the summer ready for a birthday delivery so giving myself plenty of time to spec it up and get it right,at the moment I,m liking campavollo grey with red scorpion and red stripe,although that could change!.
So I'll be searching through threads and probably be asking silly questions :whistle:
All the best
Tony

    Hi Tony and welcome. You know about 500s, and coming up to your 50th bithday, I feel you need to be as generous as possible when it comes to the options list.

    If you need help choosing colours the mini meets are starting to happen again and we take our socialising very seriously/not seriously at all depending how you view the madness  ;D

    Hi

    I was in similar predicament. Had a 500, loved it, but always wanted Abarth so got it (AGP tho). Never looked back. Welcome and enjoy the wee beastie!

    we only socialise to fly the abarth banner.
    nothing to do with weekends away
    eccesive alcohol
    fantastic drives .
    Great people (me included)
    Hope to see you when you get it.

    thats a hell of alot of time to think up what you want on the car you'll be thinking up ways of making yours totally unique before you know it.

    might not be that long,i had to pick an ipod lead up today from the dealer(yeah right :whistle:) so took the wife and showed her the Abarth and low and behold she loved it,not the grey though,i have to say when i saw the grey in the flesh i didnt like it and speaking in hushed tones i much prefered the red,which goes against my football principles! but it looked lovely in RED!! not only that she loved the convertable which i,m not sure about but it looks a stunner and would certainly turn heads,so the upshot is looking at finance deals and hopefully have an early birthday present 8)
