yeah, my old cinq was an R, but this one has less mileage :D

the very late cinq's had just one indicator stalk on the left, lights on the very end on a twisty type bit, the earlier ones have 2 stalk type things :p

and yes it was indeed Broom Yellow :(

my last car didnt have an airbag? had a huge steeringwheel tho :p

i really love the abarth kit, really does make it stand out, and contrary to what i've said to most people, new wheels are on the cards :D probably try find some MiM 14's (anyone got link to somewhere? B)) purely because they look alot like the abarth 14's :p

The last cinqs had an airbag as an option, using the same steering wheel. They had the new stalks same as seicento. Think it was late 97 they changed over.

Are you meaning your old car was manufactured 31/12/97? Or this one, cos that date would make it an R plate[?]

Not wanting to worry you or out, but you need to be sure;)
