      My girlfriend wanted a new car to replace her 2008 Civic coupe. The only cars she was intersted in was another Civic or the Fiat 500. We headed over to the local dealer and she found a blue 500 sport with all the options that she wanted and took it for a test drive. She fell in love and ended up getting the car for under sticker price. While she was doing the paper work the salesman came over and handed me the keys to the Abarth that they had on the lot and said to have fun. I loved the Abarth, the exhaust note was intoxicating and the driving experience put a huge smile on my face, it reminded me of my mk1. I really like the car, here it is

      sounds like you should, why be in debt for a VW Rabbit when you could be in debt for an italian subcompact that's barely larger than a handicapped cart from the grocery store?

      Congrats to the OP, BTW. The azzurro looks great. These are great cars, the Abarth even more, so.
