Waiting Times?

Hi,

I am very tempted to order a 500C (1.4 16v Lounge Convertible with a few optional extras). Does anyone know what the current waiting time is for delivery? Also any discounts being offered off the list price or am I wasting my time trying.

Thanks :-)

A couple of people around here have bought a 500C recently, and I think it was about 3 months. Probably worth a quick call to the dealer though - as things may have changed since the end of the scrappage scheme

Re: Waiting Times?

There are very few 1.4 16v Lounge available, as it is the slowest-selling engine in the Lounge range.

Add to that the fact that you don't say what the "...a few optional extras..." are, nor what colour/interior/roof combination you want, and you have asked a question that is impossible to answer...

Re: Waiting Times?

Thanks for the replies...well I have a spec in mind if I was buying new but I would be prepared to compromise if there was a nice demonstration vehicle available.

Options I'd selected were:

White (Solid) paint
Black Roof
Black Leather interior / Black ambiance
Italian Side sticker
White side bar with 500 logo
Leather gear knob..

Think that was it...

Sounds great :-) I had to wait around 12 weeks after ordering mine in early January, but not sure if that would still be the case. All I can add is that it's DEFINATELY worth waiting for :-) So if you have your heart set on that spec then go for it!

I've just purchased today for my wife a 500C 1.2 Lounge Convertible in Electroclash Grey and ivory-brown cloth & ivory ambience. Ive added the following extras, dualogic semi automatic transmission, electrochromatic dipping rearview mrror, 15" multispoke alloy wheels, side rubbing strip with 500 logo, Blue&me map navigation predisposition and wind stop. The garage said it should arrive mid to end of June (2010!)

Cool Re: Waiting Times?

Well I've been knocking on dealer doors for a few weeks. Discounts are hard to find but you may get some money knocked off for a pre-stop start model!! We did I was generally quoted 12-14 weeks waiting time for a factory order. You may be better finding a similar spec demo or un-registered car and try to get some extras thrown in
