Just ordered a 500 Abarth!

Went down to Autoworld Chesterfield yesterday all the way from Oldham to see the New 500 Abarth and Alfa MiTo and both look stunning!!!

Ended up test driving the A500 and I was very impressed. I already have the 1.4 Sport and the Abarth just felt so much quicker and more composed.

So now I've put down a deposit and I'm going to p/x my current 500. I went for the Grey colour with red mirrors & stripes with the 5 spoke 17" 'Petal' alloys.

Can't wait to drive the Abarth back over Snakes Pass in April/May Obviously being extremely careful!!

Si

Re: Just ordered a 500 Abarth!

Did you also try the Mito? If so, how did it compare? I have taken a Mito out (the 155 bhp) & it was great to drive, but haing also driven a Grande Punto Sporting (which it's based on) I'm not sure it's worth the extra.

Did they give you a decent price for the 1.4?

I didn't try the MiTO, my sole intention was to try the Abarth, although the MiTo looked sexy. I got quite a decent deal on my 1.4 which I expected, just got a long wait now though, which includes having to Tax and Service the current 500 Nevermind
