Thanks

Hi there. I've been lurking for a while. I'm collecting my new 500 tomorrow and just wanted to say thanks for all the information and advice I have found on here. I doubt I will become a regular contributor to the forum as I don't have time to check back regularly but big thanks to one and all

I thought the same thing when I 1st went on the forum. It can become addictive, apparently....

Don't forget guys, in case you newbies missed it, we are off to the Isle Of Wight for a big 500 meet.

Take a look in the events section of the forum.

Re: Thanks

Picked her up on Friday. Very good service from the dealer. Flowers for my wife included in the deal.

Been getting used to driving it this weekend. Having to use the gears more than I did on my previous car but enjoying the fun of driving it. Saw 2 other 500s out on the road and got a wave and a big grin from one of them. We're used to getting waves as our weekend cars are VWs - 72 Beetle and 73 Bay - but not in our weekday commuter vehicle!

I'm already looking at the accessories list to see what else I fancy bolting on.

I noticed that when I first got mine, as lots of people have mentioned, the engine does loosen up A LOT. Over 2K on mine now and you can definately feel the difference and I'm not changing down as much as I used to on some hills. When I do though, it does seem to shift a lot more than it used too.

HTH
