I was but it sucked! Felt really slow and dull on the test drive, i was very disappointed. It wasn't in great condition either so i walked! Should be better off with the Abarth! I hope...

Re: My Abarth 500

The GP will be at S G Petch in York unless they have sold it already! I sure can take you for a spin in it at some stage.

Re: My Abarth 500

I sure am!!! I am still waiting for the SS 500 at S G Petch so I can test drive it. Last I heard they were still waiting for the kit to come in.

I haven't had chance to test it fully yet, still running it in. Nearly time to give it some abuse! It sure feels quick, lots of low down torque. MPG at the minute is 33MPG. Think it will be around the 30MPG mark which isn't to bad. Will be able to give you a better indication in about a months time.
