My gf also wants a 500, in pink if possible.

Also she likes the New Dacia Sandero Stepway, in metalic blue.

She only see if the car is cute or not.

I just had a € 1000 setback for maintenance on my car.

It's the first significant repairs in 100 000 kilometers (5 years) though, I guess I can't complain too hard. Most of the money goes to brakes and suspension, I suppose I may have damaged the suspension on the bumpy stretch of A11 in Germany.

My gf also likes our new Seat Leon.
But she wants a car she can drive to work in winter, and maybe other courses or stuff, when using bike or train is not possible or optimal.
About Dacia, she likes the Logan , maybe because it was the car she mostly drove in Romania.

Car cuteness is very important for chicks. I even imagine how she would fill it with flowers and stuff, like she did with her bike

There is a car dealer on our way home from work, and every time she shows them to me and tells me she wants one. There is even a pinkish/violet one now, even better


http://home.mobile.de/home/dealerHom...#des_179615604

Anyway, there are many 500s on the streets here...
Same here. And if not that, she would be satisfied by metallic pink Suziki Splash with flower ornamental decoration as well.

Seriously? Are there motorways in such bad conditions in Germany?

Well, this is one of the worst remaining segments.


It looks just rough, but the concrete slabs are actually all a couple centimeters lower than the preceding one. You almost bounce your head to the roof driving over it at 90 km/h. It is limited at 100 km/h and most people avoid the right lane (including trucks).

Must have been really terrible road - or a bad quality of the car. My accord has almost 310000 km, with original suspension, with no signs of necessary replacement. And Slovenian roads outside motorways are far from good in average, especially in Ljubljana.

So al girlfriends are the same: they want a small & coloured car.

If I would have money I would buy an Abarth 500 / Clio RS / Polo GTi / etc.... you got the point: a small city car for her to use daily (at slow speeds because she doesn't drive fast)... but a toy for me when I want to have some fun

It is a kind of a fun driving girlish car Once I have driven my cousin's car (she had lined lot of stuffed toys - animals on rear screen, some bumper stickers) since she has just arrived by plane a I was charged to pick up her from airport. Everyone was surprised when I was a bit speeding and overtaking some expensive and strong cars. As it was 1,0 L engine, I haven't ever told her about the instant consumption on that journey.

What car does your cousin have?
The Fiat 500 twin air has a 0.9L engine, but more power then the 1.2L version.

She had 3-doors Peugeot 206. But the car has been already sold.

btw. I had Suzuki Ignis 1.3 and the car was powerful as well/hell. Unless I have been driving on holiday with a full trunk Then I had to use lane for slow vehicles in steep sections of motorway. It was really hard to keep stable RPMs on fifth gear then.

Are those concrete slabs still from before WWII?

I doubt it. It's in eastern Germany, so if anything else it's a souvenir from the DDR days, even though most of the motorways have been resurfaced already. But even in western Germany there are plenty of pigs quality of motorways left. Parts of the A5 between Karlsruhe and Frankfurt for example...

We did a little bicycling yesterday evening and stopped at the local Fiat dealer to "admire" the Fiat 500. Don't know why almost all were not equipped with ESP. It is an extra-option, but doesn't cost so much for what it offers. We found one that has it though, at an almost decent price. And she also found a name for it: Luigi

This one
