They actually hold value really well for a small shopping car.
Bet its good fun to drive with the short wheel base as well, Game over yours looks mint as well and lovely colour.
Whats with the stickers/badges on the side panel is that the abarth logo?

It is a riot to drive there's a decent amount of power available for the size/weight.

The decal is a factory option and they all have the 595 abarth badge on the side because you know, you cant have too many abarth badges 8)

Probably right with the abarth badges. Just resist the urge to put 2 scuderia shields on the front wings. . .
Twenny might have something to say about that.

Really like these little things.

Two things put me off though. The seating position is far far too high and the ride quality is shocking! Shame really as everything is bang on!

Ignore the people saying it's a woman's car



I mean, I imagine you've got the surgery booked in real soon... But my point is, you can make your own choices. Don't let anyone here dissuade you, sister!



:lol:

I actually like these a bunch... :)
You're absolutely right. You must never change your attitude, you must remain yourself.

Nice shopping trolley 😄

I see the face lifted version has m power quad tips 🙄

Seriously though, if it handles anywhere close as good as the mk1 ford KA then I bet it’s a hoot.

Look like a big jelly mould to me ;)

I think any little pokey car like that is good fun though as they have that 'go-kart' feel to them.

Best of both worlds, the BM for your 'proper' driving and then this as a guilty pleasure when no-one's around ;)

Mrs Ezzra has advised me she's buying an Abarth in the summer when her Tiguan goes back.
It looks great in red. Mrs Ezzra tells me she's having a white one.

It's quite funny to hear the jokes about Fiat reliability given some of the tales of BMW woe on this forum....:)

One of my mates has one of these, they are extremely good fun. I'd have one if it wasn't for the fact they're a Fiat though :oops:

What’s the interior quality like? Had a twin air non abarth as a loaner car for a week and it was horrible inside , properly put me off looking at the abarth version.

If it's anything like the older ones, the front seats are a different colour to the front for added 'sporti'ness'. The isn't much going on in terms of dashboard gadgets.

I meant more quality of the plastic. I was worried with the loan car if I parked in the sun i’d cole back to either a melted dashboard , or cracks all over it because it had gone brittle. Just felt really really cheap

Mrs has a fiat 500 twin air and has been bullet proof in 4 years of ownership only needing tyres and breaks.

Was looking at one of these but ended up getting a cooper s instead as the PCP deals were slightly better on the mini!
