    I'm glad Nigel ended up with the car. It's an amazing car that we have cherished for a few years now. It's on 3k miles & is as new. It's worth noting that the standard cars are 180bhp, and they suffered with a Horrendous flat spot from the factory. This has been mapped to remove the flat spot & gear changes are now brilliant. It's 210bhp in a 1.4 that does 140mph.

    Default Abarth 695

    It was a pleasure doing business with Nigel. One of the nicest & most genuine "dealers" about. We sealed the deal a week or so ago & he allowed me to keep the car a little longer so that I could use it for promo stuff etc for my new business venture.
    Anyway........ As promised, it was delivered on our new covered trailer today.

    We arrived dead on time, and the car was rolled into Nigel's showroom. The stuff dreams are made of.

    Glad you're happy with it. Missing it already. Was a nice thing to have in the unit to look at.

    I still think your Step Daughter should be gifted it :-)

    Buy a 500 essesse with sabelt seats, put the brembo big brake kit on Koni FSD shocks and throw some carbon at it.

    We have just done that for 10k all in and it is a better car than the tributo now.

    Just sold my 4 year old std Abarth and got a brand new 595 Competizione on Thursday.

    Only just got back from Barcelona F1 so not had much time in it. It is certainly better than the old one.
