I would think that now, there will be more of an exodus than an influx. Probably quite a small exodus though

Think you can call the DVLA and find out how many Barchetta models are on the road in the UK.

Re: How many of us are out there.?

I looked into this the last time it was questioned...but never got around to finding out the price.

If you really need to know, this is the information I received.

Text file attached.

I couldn't decide on how much or how little information.

Colour
Year
Colour per year
Sorn
RHD
Male\Female owner
Age of owner


and whatever else you can think of.

Inside leg\marital status\mothers maiden name hehe

Re: How many of us are out there.?

It was a black one that first sparked my interest in the B.

Spotted her in a local showroom but was sold the very next day.

I like the look of yours RoGUE , she looks very clean and looked after.

I guess all the B owners on this forum must have the extra special non standard ones.

er... dirty, standard [except dtr twin exhaust from cat back - it was cheaper than fiat] 150000kms, needs new hood and rubber seals, but winters coming so will put that off for the third year [hard top on from nov\dec to feb\march ish], original radio\cassette\cd player. half arsed ariel that works when it feels like it. Stone chipped to hell.

So apart from the exhaust - bog standard

Although... does having the Riviera Model count as extra special?

Re: How many of us are out there.?

I've never seen one on a visit to the UK, but I'm always seeing them when I travel around Europe, I imagine the LHD is a factor there.

I would imagine more are going into the UK than the other way round because they seem to be a little cheaper here and wouldn't need any conversion work or all the hassle of re-registering etc.

Re: How many of us are out there.?

LHD was a big issue for the UK - resulted in the insurance group of 19 - thats the same as a BMW M3, an Audi TT, a Merc CLK, Prosche Boxster, Cayman and Lotus Elise to name but a few!!!

Very individual cars in the UK for individual people!!!!

This is the complete breakdown of UK spec B's imported by Fiat UK. There were obvioulsy more imported privately so there are probably>1000 in the uk!
Hope this helps.

Take from that the 'B's' that have disentergrated or been involved in accidents and those that are owned by non-enthusiasts its no wonder there are only a handful of us are on the forum!
