My Little Red Rocket!!

Just picked it up. Thankfully it was sunny at the time, so took these before driving it away. Unfortunately weather got a bit wet, so after a spin around the county the car is a bit mucky. Will take some more when it is clean.

Pasodoble Red 1.2 Sport with Red Leather. Soon to be getting white side stripes and a rubbing strip with a red "500" logo.

Only driven 35 miles in it but totally fallen in love with it - actually enjoying it more than my last car, a Mazda RX-8!

Re: My Little Red Rocket!!

Thanks to all of you for your comments. Three days in and 100 miles later, I am still smiling, even when just thinking about him. I have called him "Kimi", maybe a little bit cheesy, but who cares!

Kimi is an absolute hoot to drive, and is great on the motorway.

Here are a few more pics.

Re: My Little Red Rocket!!

Hehe, no it had just been Supergarded, so the carpets were wet. Also, my dealer had supplied me with mats for LHD cars (these are the ones they have supplied to everyone so far, I am the first to have noticed!). We were just about to go to pick the new RHD ones up, and as the carpets were wet we needed to cover them. Rest assured the new mats (also Supergarded) are now installed. Just waiting for a red rubbing stripe and red 500 logo to be delivered to the dealer and fitted. Also considering a white side stripe, but not sure as I think it looks really nice as it is.

Re: My Little Red Rocket!!

Dosent need the white strip, i think they look better without! Nice interior very impressed with the leather, those head rest just dont look comfortable! They have a very cheap-esk feel and look to them.

Re: My Little Red Rocket!!

The headrests look worse than they feel. They are a solid foam material. They actually work fairly well.

Thanks for your comments re the stripe. I am beginning to think along the same lines.
