New Abarth converts
« on: March 07, 2016, 08:07:58 AM »
...   Just wanted to say Hi!

We just bought a 595c competizione and are loving it.  Every trip is an event, and we fight to see who gets the keys when we go out in it. 

We took it round Silverstone yesterday which was amazing and can't wait to do a few other track sessions over the summer.

Thanks for all the nice comments.... we love the colour too.

Definitely interested in a Brands Hatch track session..... having a bunch of Abarths all on track at the same time would be great fun. There was one other 595 on track with us at Silverstone last weekend (Red turrismo 2015 plate) who was a bit braver than me in the bends!!

Hope to catch up at an event in the near future

I just need to arrange cover for work, and then I'll get on it. Might see if I can bring my Golf R along as well for "compare and contrast" purposes!!

I was given a voucher for Xmas for that trackday company, so it makes sense to use it then.

BTW ..... I'm a partner in an independent optician and would be happy to extend a 10% discount to any members wanting specs or sunglasses.  I'm based in Haslemere in Surrey if anyone's interested.

I'm in Petworth so just down to the road from you, in fact our 595c comp (white) is in Haslemere most days as my wife drives it to work. I see 3 or 4 around that way regularly but don't know any of the owners, I'll keep a look out for you.

I'm just off there now to pick my daughter up, unfortunately I lost the battle of the keys this morning so I have to put up with the BM.

FRZ.... do you have a "595" number plate??? Think I might have followed it down the road the first time I took it to work.

We actually live in Fleet but work in Haslemere.

Yes I do have a 595 number plate so probably was us, more likely my wife if seen in Haslemere.

Just seen your number plate in your profile, that really rings a bell, I'm sure I've seen you recently. You were parked in car park but I can't think which one. I often catch the train from Haslemere and park in one of station car parks, would have it been there? That said I've probably used every car park in Haslemere recently so it could have been anywhere!

Fleet is quite a journey, a good drive if the traffic is quiet but I imagine a nightmare when it's not.
