Cool James Blu 1.2 lounge (update)

I'm posting again in order to start a brand new topic, with related only posts and many many pictures.

Just for your info i collected the car last Thursday and i just love it.

Even my bf has started loving it

I took these pictures today on my way to the dealership for the installation of the parking sensors.

For all of those who are not aware of the car's specs are the following:

Skydome roof
Rubber strips with 500 badge
Climate control
16" multi spoked alloys
Leather gear knob


Enjoy

Car looks great and you have accessorized nicely with the ribbon and the handbag!
Nicely specified with all the right bits.
Enjoy.

Re: James Blu 1.2 lounge (update)

Thank you all for your nice comments. I'm posting again those two that seem having an error at the first post.

Both of them show the great light shade of volare blue.

It looks like it has drawn a lot of attention, not just from us but from distant galaxies far far away. That is a UFO I see in the top left of the pic isn't it?

Certainly looks like a flying saucer when you zoom in.

Hey Chrislida, nice car!
How do the 16 inch wheels feel on the Greek roads?
Be careful not to scratch them!
When I see scratched rims on beautiful cars i feel like crying!

I would second that.
Park a mile out from the kerb and push the mirrors in.
Noticed that you have the Conti Contact 2 tyres. Very nice tyres and I have found that they give a surprisingly comfortable ride plus extra braking power than the smaller wheels. They look the business.

Re: James Blu 1.2 lounge (update)

LOL, probably it's a bird lol.


In general i'm really careful when parking and due to its size i'm able to not park that close to the pavement and still be ok.

The 16" wheels are just great, i'm able to make a comparison between 15" and 16" and what i feel is the car being more steady.

I'm aware of these tyres because my beetle had the same, i didn't ask for them but i was surprised when i noticed that my 500 has the same.

No joke!
As a result no scratches on the rims! Some friends would ask why i park 'so far from the kerb'. I assume they think that the closer you park to the kerb the 'more macho' you are, in the same sense that the darker your tinted windows, the more 'gangster' you are if you catch my drift.
Yeah Conti 2's are decent but i want to try others, I am thinking Nokians!
So i guess i was wrong to get the 15s instead of the 16s thinking they would be too harsh on the holes in the middle of the road, oh well!

Actually i cannot tell a difference in terms of harshness but even if they are (and I'm not able to figure it out) it doesn't matter because you feel the car being more steady and turn better.
