« on: October 21, 2014, 03:27:13 pm »
Afternoon chaps and chapettes,

I'm 21, test drove my Abarth a couple of months ago. Couldn't really afford it but i also couldn't help myself and i don't regret a thing!

Only joined here yesterday, just to get some more info/advice/inspiration on the car and share the abarth love! lol

Always happy to go on meets if anyone is in my neck of the woods.

ill upload some pictures as soon as i work out how to haha

    Hello and welcome to Abarthisti!

    Nice to have a new younger member, im 20 myself and not too far outside London!

    What did you go for?

    Best way to upload pictures is to first upload them to something like photo bucket, then just using the linking method; except without any spaces

    Hi Will!

    Another way would be put your photos on the computer, resize in something like MS Paint (I'm old school like that) or Photoshop and then you can upload them as an attachment :)

    Nice to see another member not to far away! :)

    Welcome, what's your insurance if you don't mind me asking, I'm 18 myself and it's not the most favourable :(

    Welcome mate. Insurance? What's that? At my age you don't even notice it! I remember being 19, Golf GTi, £1000 third party, outrageous but worth every penny, enjoy.

    Insurance is costing me a bit over £2200, its absolutely ridiculous.

    When I bought the car i was going to be moving to essex where it was considerably cheaper, but I ended up staying in London and having to pay for it now haha

    The car is so worth it though!
    Should be quite a bit cheaper next year also.

    Have you gone for a 500 or 595?
