Cinquecento my new cinqi

Introduction

couldnt live without a cinq :) so i bought a new one :D

Red 1996/7 (dunno) cinq sporting in rosso red. genuine abarth skirts from factory.. everything else standard :)

I HATE THE STANDARD CINQ SUSPENTION heh. feels like its gonna topple over.. nearly shat myself taking corners like i could take my old one heh.. not a good idea :p

noticed problems since ive got it (an hour ago).. think the passenger side rear hub has gone.. not a prob tho, easy fix. and there is some rust on the inner rear arches in the boot but ill tackle it asap :)

other than that, its great :D im happy again! its got a dent in the bonnet but they are easy to replace anyway so ill pick one up in a week or so... MUST LOWER before i fly off the road. oh yeah and i broke the handbrake on my test drive :) although i think the cable has just come loose rather than snapping but again, easy to replace so ill have a better look another day :)

seems slow compared to the tunned 1242 :p

anyway, pics! oh and ital be at stanford on sunday on the FF area so come find me!

I dont have loads of money.. its just a matter of saving a bit of my weekly wage which is the minimum wage btw.

I got ****ed over on that white uno.. its a pile of ****e... will be going to the scrappers next week. i could only afford the new cinq because i got paid today and luckily had £200 saved from a few weeks. im completly skint now.. the 3 or so quid ive got in my pocket is all ive got to my name now :p

it was £400. not as smart as the blackun but that had had loads spent on it. gimmie a few months and thisal be nice too :).. first thing to do, debadge boot for stanford :D and polish.

bushboy,

you should leave negative feedback for the uno saying it had so much rust you had to scrap it. not that fiats rust ;) and very nice cinq there id say a right bargain for £400, where do people get these bargains from, in my local paper there is a 1997 cinq sx for sale for....... wait for it............£2175!! is he joking! :p
