You're all so lucky!
« on: October 19, 2011, 08:29:08 pm »
Hi guys

Just joined this brilliant forum.

Sadly I'm not and abarth owner (yet!), I will have to wait until I come out of university then I will be going straight to the dealer and buying an a500!

I drive a black Mini One which has been great fun but not in the same league as the a500 I test drove last week (immediately fell in love).

I'm looking forward to seeing all your amazing cars which I am hugely jealous of and feel free to lend me yours anytime!  ;)

    Hi David

    Welcome   :wave: 

    Most of us have had to wait for our cars in one way or another, so I do feel your pain mate   :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.

    Gav, I haven't seen any Abarth's in Stafford only the ones that have been in the fiat garage from time to time. I will be on the look out for yours!

    I'm sure it will be worth the wait!  I'm one of the 3 gavos999 mentioned - not far from the County Showground.  Looking forward to seeing you out and about when you get yours  :wave:

    Welcome to the forum  :wave:

    If you really want something the waiting for it will only increase the desire and joy you'll have, once you own it! :thumb:

    Thanks corsa.

    I'm trying to convince myself that is the case too but it's hard once you have the bug as I'm sure you know!

    I know how it feel for sure!
    Only a few years ago I was in uni too and waiting for the first cash to come in to get me some toys 8)

    Well, at least you have enough time to read into the topic, so you will be 100% certain of what to buy and what to get :thumb:

    Hello and welcome, I'm sure you will have a right whale of a time here.

    I feel your pain; I waited two years to get an Abarth!! I testdrove an A500 but I was a few months into ownership of my Fiat 500 and it was approaching its third year when I went ahead in ordering my A500c.

    I live in the West Midlands, so you might see me on the M6 if and when I travel to Cheshire.

    Thanks. I'm already loving looking at all your amazing cars.

    How was the wait? I'm desperate for it already and only test drove it last week!

    Looking forward to seeing yours around :)

    The wait was worth it, the feeling of getting in my hands a brand-new A500c was second to none. I had to save up a bit towards it.

    I'm on the M6 to Manchester on Sat so who knows?
