Title: Hi there from another new face!
Post by: tweetysv650s on January 15, 2009, 08:47:08 am
Having had the lucky break of being able to get up close and enjoy a 500 Abarth in Italy in September at one of their few and far between dealers I returned to England so impressed with what I had experienced that I wanted one.
The dealer in Italy had priced up a 500 Abarth with optional red paint, red leather, climate, and white Abarth stripes at 20,000 Euro. With the current exchange rate ouch!
I contacted John at Vospers and placed my deposit at about the same time as I should have been unpacking my suit case.
I am hoping to collect our car in May and it will be the 500 Abarth, in red with, red leather, climate, white Abarth side stripes and the esseesse pack. Seems we are getting goood value this side of the channel.

Just to clear this up, May is when Mr+Mrs tweety want to pick their car up. It should be here before that

We picked our's up on my birthday in October, it certinaly put a smile on my face
...the only thing that was missing was the big red bow that I had requested  :'(
On the up side, Jet was also registered on my birthday so now she is extra special to me  ::)

stop u are makin me sad lol :'( but yeah i know wat u mean GPA's are still so rare and tbh i think they mite not take off as much as they deserve cause when i talked to ppl about the abarth they have never heard of it lol not necessarily a bad thing though i like the exclusive aura of a GPA

Get used to it - the hardest and most annoying part is trying to explain why its not a fiat.
