    If you want to get good value for money in your 500 buy a Panda.

    If you got lots of money to throw around, I guess it's a pretty cute little racer to have?

    At first it wasn't supposed to be available for sale, just a courtesy car for Ferrari owners while their cars were serviced.
    If I drop off my Ferrari 458 and get a 132kw courtesy box I would not be very happy.

    If you drop off your Ferrari you probably are not even interested to get a courtesy car as this is probably the right occasion to take your other Ferrari out for a spin.

    Your other Ferrari is probably at the dealer too.

    Not if you never drove it, which may be the case.

    During my eternal journey of tracking all existing Zondas, I've found one which was delivered in Feb 2009, and registered only in summer 2010. A frigging Zonda. That guy owns 2/3 of them. He of course owns also a few other exotics, among which a 458. Must be a hell of a problem deciding which car to drive every day.

    I've never understood those guys. I'd hate to buy a car to not drive it.

    Either way, with another Ferrari or not, it's BS IMO that you get that little Fiat as a courtesy car.

    Take your class C Mercedes to the dealer and you will walk out with a class E courtesy car, same at the BMW dealer.

    Maybe it's just over there, because over here you walk out with an A or B klasse, and it's the same for all of them. Except for Porsche, which could give you a Cayenne V6 instead of your 911 Turbo.

    Courtesy cars are a disappearing... courtesy, so I wouldn't be surprised if you weren't getting a car at all at many dealerships.

    Besides, the Abarth 500 SS is much better than what I think you think about it. Some reviews said it is a bi too stiff for everyday duties, even if I do see quite a few of them on the road, and drivers seem to enjoy that over-stiffness.

    Agreed. At the very least give something of equal or higher value as a courtesy car. Why the hell do I want a Fiat 500 as a courtesy car?

    A Maserati Quattroporte would do nicely.

    Of course it's a stupid car to buy, that's not the point. In the roughly paraphrased words of Jeremy Clarkson, "Buying this car shows that you could have anything else, but you wanted this." He was talking about the Abarth, but the sentiment is the same.

    I've filmed one of only 152 RHD Tributo's in the world:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ua-0UvOiW6M&feature=channel_video_title"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ua-0UvOiW6M&feature=channel_video_title[/ame]

    Basically, it's an Abarth 500, decked out in Scuderia Red and has had a stiffer suspension set-up, 20Hp increase, new exhaust, higher turbo psi, carbon fibre accents, paddle shift gearbos and many other samll details. So it has had alot done to it, but it's not enough to justify a 36,000 price tag.
