Re: Clarity on 500 build dates - does anyone know for sure??

Have you got any of your demos yet pwig
What about the '2 additional cars' dealers are getting - have you sold them too? Have you sold your garages Feb/March allocation as well?

I'd have to check, but I think I've got two 1.2 Pops for early February build left.
I've just ordered standard cars to get them in the system, but options and colours can be changed up until about two weeks before they go into build.

Officially I haven't got any left, as one is mine and the other is going to be used as a demonstrator...

...but I would have been happy to let Mark have mine to help him out, as he wasn't having much joy with his dealer, but I gather from a post he made this morning that his issues are now sorted.

Yep, confirmed as week 5 build, apparently no customer cars built befor week 3.

Ended up 370 lighter after my visit though as I ended up adding "U" spoked alloys & side rubbing strips with chrome 500 badge.

Hhhmmmm my dealer told me the first batch for the UK were already built, but were busy getting their options/extra fitted, guess no-one knows for sure.

Anyway I hope you guys dont have to wait too long, I am only getting mine sometime in May anyway

Ooooh sounds a plan. Sick of being 5'8.

Re: Clarity on 500 build dates - does anyone know for sure??

Got confirmation on my car today. It goes into production in week 3 of January and is due to arrive in the UK on the 11th February. It should be with my dealer no later than the 19th February after being checked over & transported by Walon so that's a March 1st registration for me. I ordered the car back in mid September. The good news from my point of view is that as my car is in the initial production run of RHD cars I've been assured it will not suffer from the delays mentioned here and on nf500 due to supply issues on certain wheel designs etc.

We have the Lounge and Sport ones.

I _might_ be able to scrape you a end of march delivery if you want to order one with me

Re: Clarity on 500 build dates - does anyone know for sure??

Forgot to say, had a chap who has changed his order to an Abarth SS.

So if anyone wants his car let me know, it's a 1.4 Sport in Black with Red Leather. Few other options totals about 12700. For me it was the perfect spec 500 (I should know I sat down and specced it with him come order time ). It was an original Pre order so in the first batch into the UK.

I'm surprised you haven't got people queueing up for it already?

Most dealers are already selling their February and March allocations, not trying to find buyers for their launch cars...

I doubt you'll have it long, there must be plenty of people clamouring to get a launch car.
