New A500 - Esseesse Owner :-)
« on: October 17, 2010, 05:28:12 pm »
Hi everyone, just wanted to introduce myself. I have been a member of this forum for many months now and have been reading your posts with enthusiam. I have owned a FIAT 500 1.2 Lounge, and as an everyday car has been superb. However, I am a complete petrolhead and have always wanted an A500, so this morning I popped down to Rockingham Cars and have just bought an A500-ESSEESSE (picking it up on the 30th Oct) - Now, I've got almost 2 weeks to wait!!!!!
Here's the spec
A500 white
Red leather interior
Red side-strips with red mirrors
Auto-dimming rear view mirror
Climate Control
ESSEESSE Kit - With White wheels
Monza Exhaust.
Black Abarth 595, Monza, Sabelt leather, OZ Ultraleggera

    See if it's more fun than the GT3...

    I'd give thought to the Koni shocks before the Monza for a real improvement, then get the Monza after you've saved up a bit more and appreciate the noise.

    Are you a PH fan too??? Guess my username gave it away......Guess I'll be able to use the full rev range with the A500 on the road - GT3 is super rapid and can't really max it out on the road - On the track, however, it's a different ball game altogether. Have been invited to Rockingham on the 29th - day b4 I get my esseesse and will be driving a few A500's and might take the GT3 for a few laps too

    It's the username.  But as a seasoned Abarthisto (it doesn't take long) I searched your other post from August.

    In the absence of my own track I've always thought most cool cars a bit of a waste.  The Abarth is great for normal life; an Elise is too impractical otherwise my hard-earned would be there.  I think you can get away with much more on a bike, but why would I want anything bigger than a 600?

    I need to do more trackdays.  And/or have loads more cash.
