Picked her/him/it (delete where appropriate) on wednesday

Finally picked my 500 up on wednesday. Was meant to be monday, but the cheque hadnt come from the bank wasnt ready and I was too busy at work anyhow lol.

Woooohoooo what a car. Impressed with the handling (was expecting it to be average like my Stilo was before my suspension upgrade). Some body roll, but feels nice and planted. Engine, wow what can I say. I have come from a 120 mjet Stilo remapped, so was scared of how it was going to drive like. Really impressed to be honest. Picks up much better than I thought. Can hold its own very nicely on the road

Anyhow, took some pics. Hope they look ok.............Edit. pics to follow. Its taking a while

Looks very good!

Quite a few people picked up their 500s now. Someone should start a how many 500s thread similar to what the other sections have so I can make it a sticky.

if your not happy with them then take it back to the dealers and get them to sort it they shouldn't be too hard to take off as they're on the stripe so won't touch your paint.

lovely car btw, nice to see one with a black stripe instead of the white....like mine!!

Re: Picked her/him/it (delete where appropriate) on wednesday

Why's this been moved to member's motors? Can't people post photos of their car in the 500 section? Now that it's closed it's going to get lost amoung the posts and many people in the 500 section won't be able to see it...

Looks great Porlus! Shame about the badges, but it's an easy fix. Also they've got them upside down. The pointy bits should be on the bottom left and top right.
