My TA Lounge in Volare Blue.

Just picked up today:











You can just about make out a tiny little crease in the rear wheelarch of the last pic - I noticed this on collection of the car, and it was pointed out - this is going to be repaired, and the Italian flag wing badges will go on at the same time. The dealer were very apologetic and assured me the damage wasn't there on PDI, so it must have happened on the way to Central London where I picked it up - ho hum, these things happen!

Getting used to it - it's a big change from an Alfa 156 V6, but it's bloody nice

I'm so jealous

[Edit - To clarify only jealous as it looks so lovely and I can't wait to get mine ]

A very nice car. My twin air had the minutest stone chip on the bonnet when we picked it up. My dealer arranged for a complete new bonnet to be fitted so I'm sure all will be fine with your car.

I have just rehosted your photos to the forum. As written in the sticky at the top of the Members Motors forum, please use the forum gallery to host your images in future.

Nice looking car btw Something that I have just noticed on your car, are the vents above the rego plate functional, or just there as a retro styling cue?

Re: My TA Lounge in Volare Blue.

Gorgeous! Is that registration private as it looks really good, the LL11 bit, I'm not sure how registrations work, mine starts with a Y and alot of the 11 plates I've seen have been Y's so I was wondering if they all were, but if yours isn't private then obviously not. Your car is gorgeous though! I've had mine 2 weeks now, the day I took it home I noticed the smallest dint on the driver's door, very very tiny, but I was home before I noticed it so I didn't think the dealer would do anything so I've just left it.

Have at look at this link Rach
commons/thumb/d/d8/BritishNumberPlates_CopyrightKaihsuTai.jpg/200px-BritishNumberPlates_CopyrightKaihsuTai.jpg commons/thumb/d/d8/BritishNumberPlates_CopyrightKaihsuTai.jpg/200px-BritishNumberPlates_CopyrightKaihsuTai.jpg
(click to the current system section). The first 2 letters mean the area the car was registered in.. E,g your Y stands for Yorkshire, L stands for Lonodon. The 2nd letter is more specific for the local town/area.

Re: My TA Lounge in Volare Blue.

I'm super chuffed with it, and the nice thing is that it's not (yet) that common around here..

Re: My TA Lounge in Volare Blue.

And the obligatory engine shot.. It's so tiny, but it's a gutsy little thing:



The car has done 80 miles now, and it's starting to loosen up, I'm really impressed with the engine and how the car drives.

Same around where I live. I've only seen 2 other Volare blue ones, apart from mine (and one might have been the same car twice), plus the demonstrater at Clemo Fiat.
