    Its a good job we're not all driving round in the same colour/spec abarths, with the same taste, ...there'd be far less to talk about ?! :thumb:

    I suspect it's a car that apppeals to people that like something a bit different. I'm probably the only person who has bought it as a sensible little work car  ;D

    Ah the old "this car is great but what it really needs is someone to stick a turbocharger and whacking great spoiler on it"  ;D

    Something like that, certainly "this car is great but could be a bit quicker and take corners a bit better" ;D

    Mines going to be a work car too!  At the moment my journey to work is very short, but I am looking at other jobs further away because I'll have a great car to commute in! Car ordered - now need to get the new job!

    I'm so sad that yesterday I bought a die cast model A500 off eBay. Because no-one seems to stock the small 1;43 red ones I managed to get a second hand one (never taken out of the box  ;) ).

    I managed to resist, purely because I couldnt find one in the colours I had specced on my car. It would have been a different story had I found one in my colours.  ;D

    Yesterday felt like the hardest yet, in this waiting game!! Why aren't there any tiny grey A500 models?

    They do only seem to do white, black and red ones - and only the white ones seem generally for sale in the small size in this country.

    Problem is I'm now waiting for two Abarths to arrive!!

    I really need to give the dealer of the real one a ring to find out what happens and when I need to chase him. Just been so hideously busy at work.

    One if my cars arrived. But sadly it's the model one. Problem is it's immaculate and in an official abarth box and I wanted to take it out and make vroom noises.
