Looking at buying Abarth 595.

Does anyone have any experience of owning one?

Advise most welcome.

I had one for a year and mostly liked it. I had the Tourismo on a 1 year lease from Fiat for £199 a month through their Group Affinity scheme. I think they're doing the same deal over 2 years now. I got access through British Cycling membership.

The only resale issue was the seats were quite upright and the pedals very close together. The ride is pretty hard too. But it is quick and fun.

The one problem on the road is that people don't realise how quick they are and don't tend to let you by. Expect only 30-ish mpg too.

Hard ride could be a problem as my local council loves speed bumps.

As you are a member you too can access the Fiat Affinity discounts, which include the 595.

Theresa usually gets the deals sent through, although there maybe a delay due to this being a new quarter for 2017.
