Re: No stock

That is very unlucky and ufortunatly that is the case across the UK at the minute. The basic models are easy to find, Just the Sportings with any decent extras are like gold dust!(I waited best part of 3 months for mine).

Re: No stock

I really wanted the New Orleans Blue, no stock, then decided on Crossover Black, same again no stock. I'm in two minds about asking for a white one... but after my last PALIO was a white one and the accident etc, I may be reminded again...

Re: No stock

Glyn hopkin buckhursthill have stock.... a black one 1.2 dynamic, orange sporting 1.9, a silver 1.3 multijet.
The only thing is the sales manager (stuart) is a complete w***er and if you get any problems you wont get help, but if you are getting it through the insurance i wouldnt have thought you would have to meet the to**er.
Good luck and inform them that Glyn Hopkin do have stock of most of the cars, they are in the showroom.
Glyn Hopkin Chadwell Heath also has a large amount of stock in the showroom and on the forecourt.

Re: No stock

That is a bit of a joke. They have a car but don't want to sell it!? Have you tried contacting Fiat customer service about this?

Re: No stock

Other dealer doesn't have to transfer it to your garage.

Look at it this way when you get one it will be even better & with such a demand it should hold its secondhand value much better

true, the demand here has out stripped the supply so deff will be worth more, even if I have to wait 6 months
