Hello Everyone

Hi
Just thought I introduce myself as I just joined - just bought a 595 1.4 T-Jet 145hp brand new in Scorpion black with black leather.

I am Celine aka Mme Fluffy – French but now also British – lived in UK for the past 20 years.

I Bought "Nino" to replace my current winter run around which is a SAAB 9.5 Vector estate - great but way too big for my liking.

Other car in the garage is a Porsche 968 Club Sport - great car, love it, especially on the track. Want to keep it off the road during winter hence why I just bought Nino.

Car history:
Typical French fist cars and quirky classics while in France – things like Renault 5 GTL, Ford Fiesta Mk1 Sport, Citroen 2CV (I known, I said I was French didn’t I), Peugeot 104 ZS and the last one before I moved to the UK Classic Fiat 126.

History in the UK started with Capri Gaia 3litre V6, followed by MR2 GT-Limited (2 litre normal aspirated), then MR2 Turbo (imported from Japan) then MR2 Roadster (2 of those) - used to be on the board of the MR2 Drivers' Club.

So far so good, love Nino – done about 100 miles in it and the sport button is constantly engaged. My only issue is the ride position. I feel like I am perched even though the seat is at the lowest position – I suppose going from the Porsche where you basically seat on the floor to the Abarth was always going to feel strange!

Looking forward to meeting some of you at events if I can manage my crazy diary!
