New order gone wrong !

Bad news for anyone who currently has an order for a new factory order Stilo with Jamjar.com. Just spoken to a supervisor / group leader there and Fiat have changed the specs and all the colours and the interior colours of the cars. My order was for a metallic navy blue car with a Blue Doria cloth interior with factory order options of a FF alarm and radio buttons on the steering wheel. JJ has off their own back decided to order me a different colour that even they do not know what it looks like and told me the blue interior has been discontinued and again off their own back have ordered me a black interior, as well as this they had no records of the options i had requested when i originally ordered the car. More bad new...... Jamjar have no idea what colour Vitality blue looks like, so I rang Fiat UK who beleive it or not have no idea what it looks like either, as they do not have 2004 model year brochures and are not expecting any until March at hte earliest Fiat UK also have no idea what the optional grey interiorr looks like as an alternative to the black I have been "informed" the car will come in ( which I will immediately reject !)Fiat also tell me they are not making any stilos until late February so i dont know how JJ plan to deliver the car by March 1st ! Has anyone any advice for me because I am no longer getting a car to the spec, or colour or trim I ordered....Help..

2004 Metallic navy blue Stilo 1.9 JTD Dynamic 3 door. Alarm and steering wheel stereo buttons. (on order)

I'd consider cancelling the order (I think you have grounds!) and buying a low mileage second hand one. Rumour has it the specs are changing for the worse, so it might be your best bet.

To see the colours, check out the Italian brochure at:
http://www.fiatstilo.com/pdf/STILO_OP_MOTORSHOW.pdf

It's in Italian but has the specs and colours.
Will call Jamjar myself tomorrow to find out whats happened to mine.

If Fiat are changing the specifications for the worse, does this now mean that a 2nd hand Stilo with the old speicification will be in demand and prices will now go up!!!? Well, I supppose you can have a dream.....

Does anyone have an idea of what been lost/changed from the 2004 specification when compared with the launch model? Is there anything new?

1.2 80hp/5000rpm, 114Nm/4000
1.4 95hp/5800rpm, 128Nm/4500

I don't know.. I'm still happy to have the "old" 1.2 instead of that new 1.4.

And no more beautiful Loden Green! WTF are they thinking?

Stilo'04, Loden Green, 17" alloys, 8spkr "hifi" system, debadged, tinted windows.

Maybe the reason they've discontinued Loden green is because it looks like circa 1978 Triumph BRG ;) Only kiddin!

I'm happy i picked the 1.2 (not that i've got it yet), i knew of the 1.4 in the offing, but it will be a 5-speeder no doubt!

If the new 1.4 is 95bhp what happens to the 103 bhp 1.6? What is the sense in this?

I've found the specs for the new 2004 Stilo.
They seem to be the same, plus a few extras on the Dynamic as standard.

plus there are some decent photos of the new facelift 5 door.. Phew its less ugly..

You've been mucked around. Like they said above, cancel and buy a nearly new car. You'll save a small fortune.

what a nightmare,almost makes me glad im a poor student and can only afford me cinq,well almost[V]but seriously they cant change your spec like that,the only way i would take the car is if they were going to seriously improve the spec and ultimately resale value but this is unlikely and just cancel/reject the car[:(!][:0]
