Hello to all
« on: February 16, 2009, 07:25:48 pm »

Hi

bit late in saying hello as i have been lurking on the forum unregistered for a while and have to say its been very good reading :thumb:

Been interested in the a500 and its release for what seems an eternity,i took one out from platts in stoke and really enjoyed it such a great car.would have one in a flash if my comute to work wasnt so damn long,i have even started talking to my bose if there is getting somewhere a bit closer to home ;D

currently have a classic mini for my weekend car which i love because its a great driving car which is why i loved the a500 so much and i am being totally honest i would take it over a bmw mini any day (and i have drove several versions)

Anyway hello and keep up the good work :thumb:

    Welcome!  :wave:

    I think a long commute to work is a good reason for getting one! More time behind the wheel of the little beast  ;D

    Welcome.  Stick around anyway, even if you are not planning on getting one just yet.

     :wave: Welcome, definately the longer the comute the more chance for fun, my poor bambino will have to cope with very short trips during the week and then finally being allowed to play at the weekends. Italian cars just love to be driven and generally driven hard, many a problematic old Alfa engine was sorted by the engineer simply giving it a dang good thrashing.  :D
