Woo-hoo!! (hello)
« on: February 14, 2012, 09:35:33 pm »

Just collected my 500C  ;D

Standard Abarth in White/Black/Red waistline, with white 17" wheels, red brake calipers, red leather and interscope audio from the options list. 

There's a little part of me that says I'm a bit too old for this sort of thing but there's a much bigger part that's saying (to the tune of Song Number 2) "Woo-hoo"... 

I'm loving it and haven't had as much fun driving since my first car - a Morris Mini 1000, twin carbs, minilite alloys, sliding windows (full toolkit, tow rope and WD40 in the boot...) 

It almost feels like a privilege to have a second car, let alone one that's such a lark to drive and has so much clever design and engineering packed into such a small object (even if there's even LESS space under the bonnet than my old Mini!) 

It's just plain NAUGHTY  ;)

Great forum by the way   :thumb:

    Hi and welcome. What a spec. Did you get a manual gearbox?

    Thanks GTMartin. Yep - manual box, although the auto was tempting. The 'other' car in the family has an amazing CVT box but somehow I think the 'automatic manual' box on the Abarth wouldn't quite be the same.

    Welcome to the forum. Sounds a great combination, I should say that because I already own one except the leather is black.

    Enjoy your time here.

    No such thing as too old. You sound like just the right sort of owner!

    Enjoy.  ;D
