New car for the missus

Post by Dave W » Tue Aug 23, 2011 8:47 am

Having had numerous Mini Cooper S's , the missus suddenly started looking at Clubmans & Countrymans.  Both are pig ugly in my eyes, so couldn't justify buying one  :wize:

Next choice was the fiat 500, which she test drove a 1.2 basic car & liked.  Being a typical petrol head it didn't quite tick the boxes for me, so I ended up ordering one of these  for 1st Sept  :-X

Ordered in the grey, with red mirrors & stickers, same wheels as above, plus fixed glass roof.

No idea if it's any good as didn't even test drive one, as short on time  :D
