Yo!
« on: August 06, 2009, 01:20:24 pm »
Hi All
I'm not an Abarth owner yet but hopefully will be before the end of the year!
I'm looking to buy an Abarth 500 which I hope to have an order by the end of the month, just need to book my second test drive and discuss some figures etc.
At the moment I'm driving an 08 Suzuki Swift 1.5GLX 3dr, which I will be sad to see go, but thinking about the terrible time I've had dealing with Suzuki should ease the pain a little bit :(
I'm from Solihull, West Mids and so far i've only seen one A500 driving round (and if it's you who happens to be reading this then "nice car :thumb:")
Anyways, i'll stop typing and hope to see you all around the forum and on the roads  :wave:

     :wave: Welcome, you aren't the first to jump from the Swift to the 500 and as you can tell in the Harewood event pictures other Swift owners are desperate to get near Abarths  ;D

    There are some pics somewhere at the begining of the 500 section (bumped into them the other day can't see em just yet) but the sunroofs don't look any different (well except when one of them is open anyway :))

    Wampa's quite correct, I have the tetto in vetro fisso.

    I love it - lights up the interior and lets me peer up at the clouds and daydream a little.  Also good for tall traffic lights.  It looks the same from the outside, but I think intrudes less on the interior height than the Skydome.  It has a mesh blind to pull across for all these blistering summer days.

    Good luck with a deal.  The chaps at Research couldn't resist pointing out that they had absorbed the £5 increase in tax since I'd ordered.  Most generous.  ;)

    Here is a photo of the fixed glass roof from the inside.

    Think this car actually belongs to Needsmust

    You can just see my craftily mounted TomTom ... and a couple of shady characters in the background.
