It's launch day 21 Jan.Anyone collecting their 500 this week?

Its party time and launch day now then (Monday 21 January).

All Fiat dealers have their demonstrating cars (they are not allowed to sell those)

Some dealers have their first 2 cars in stock which they can sell or have sold already so some lucky peeps will be collecting their 500 on 21 jan, or later this week.

1. Anyone on here collecting their 500 today, tomorrow, later THIS WEEK?

2. Has any dealer still got either of his 2 'stock' vehicles for sale?
If so, what version is it, where is it, how much above list price is it?
I'll see if I can talk the boss to get me that company car he promised me when I started work.

I know the Edinburgh AC has one sold, a lounge petrol....don't know the engine spec... with Italy stripes, climate control, and I'm not sure what else. And one under a car cover ready for the 21st.

Not me! Was supposed to be here for tomorrow (can't say I ever believed that to be honest, so I'm not upset or surprised that it's not here!) as I'm getting one of the first 2 cars for my dealer but now looks like being towards the end of first week of Feb.

Well, youd never know there was a launch here... although Im on the mailing list and Fiat keep sending me stuff about the 500 I know nothing about any launch at local dealers. Nothing on their websites either, pretty pants really. So, I shant be driving about hoping to get in

I would have liked to go to a launch, no invite so they can stick the 500 where the sun dont shine

Seriously, I have bought 3 brand new Fiats from that dealer, have asked Fiat to keep me informed from the start and I dont get invited to the launch, that is crap sales technique
If you bother reading all the threads I have said loads of positive things about the 500, I am wanting one you know

Can't - no dealership in Manchester. Last one was DC Cooks.

Caledonia was in Salford.

TTFN,
Tony.
