Will i miss my mx5 ?
« on: January 10, 2012, 08:39:00 pm »
I would love a abarth or should i say my heart would, but my brain keeps saying stick with  the mx5 , i cant afford a new A500 so a 2nd hand one up to £12000 do you think i would get a good one at that price.

    They are out there!

    And yes, you'll miss the MX5 but, once your got your hands on the Abarth, you'll be thinking, "what MX5?" ;D

    There are people on here who have moved from all manner of great cars, MX5's amongst them,  but still love the little Abarth.  :thumb:

    Sure Autoworld had a pre-reg in at just under £13k a while back...basic spec no doubt, but basically new for not much more than the price you're talking about 8)

    I'd risk it buddy, it's better to have loved and lost than never had an Abarth :thumb:
    Now that I'm a grown up I drive a sensible grey 595 Competizione with grey leather sabelt seats and yellow brake calipers. It's jolly nice! It's got a name - ' Razzogrigio' Now with a custom S/S group N style exhaust, black Esseesse wheels and a GTT induction kit, all sitting on Eibach springs.

    I swapped my RX8 for an A500  esseesse  with Monza, 4000 miles on a 10 reg for £12500.
    After having a Manta GTE, my beloved Corrado G60 and the RX8,  I can honestly say The A500 is the most fun I have had with my trousers on.
    It makes me smile so much my face hurts.
    You could even go soft top on the A500 if its your thing?

    Good point, maybe not total wind in the hair, but still a million miles of sky.

    DEFO speak with Autoworld (Ben) he gave us a cracking deal on a convertible A500 I have never driven a car that makes me smile so much even when not driving :thumb:

    I'd stick with the MX-5 Fab little car. Handles like a dream, looks sexy, never goes wrong, girls always smile and give a cheeky wink. Girls don't get the A500 they wince instead of wink. I miss girls winking.
