Hello from a new owner in Gloucestershire
« on: October 02, 2014, 02:23:33 pm »
Hi everyone! I thought I would share a few pictures of my new 500C which I collected from TH Whites in Swindon just 10 days ago. I'm thrilled with my little car and having such fun. When I ordered my car I decided not to go with any stripes or decals but I am now tempted to have some darkish grey Abarth stripes down the sides which I thought may go nicely with the colouring of the wheels - what are your thoughts?

    A lot of people will disagree but I like it 'naked', keep it as it is imo, looks really nice

    I have to agree with KK_96, I think it looks great naked!

    Looks fantastic :)

    Tell you what I do like though...... the black red contrast.

    Welcome to the 'nest'! I'm sure scorpions must have nests! :wave: Good choice of colour - but I would say that wouldn't I :thumb: I had a preference for 'naked' but the best one I found, buying second hand, had the black side stripes.  I felt I could put up with that-but no more! ;D In fact, since I bought it in May they have quite grown on me :) Again, I might be prejudiced, but I think the black/red contrast works best.  In the end, all these things are personal taste so go for whatever you fancy or see if you can find another one with the look you want ;D Good luck with that - I have only seen one other on the road since I got mine :thumb:
