Ordered today

Ordered my 5dr 1.4 Active today, one thing that has just occured to me is I forgot to request no dealer window stickers. Is this something you need to tell them? Also dealers don't still stick their own metal badges on cars do they?

Thanks

Reading the brochure, then the website, there seem to be some differences to what the dealer told me today...he said that the 1.4 Active (2004) comes as standard with body coloured mirrors. Also body coloured side moulding and bumpers with no black inserts.

Yet the website says the 1.4 Active comes with body coloured bumpers with black inserts and coloured mirros are only standard on dynamic upwards.

Whose right?

From what i've read on the website in the past it seems to be fairly inacurate!

I think the coloured mirrors etc is only applicable to the five door version.

The spec is all over the place with these cars, I reckon the Italian workforce are ok in the early hours of their shift, then they have their lunch, have a glass or two too much vino and the spec sheets go out of the window, they add or miss what they want!:D

Congrats on the Stilo. Fiat specs have always been a bit random. You never know exactly what you'll get until you see the car. The trick is to have a sense of humour about it.

FIAT are not the only one to have very different specs for their cars.As much as i know FORD does the same to his cars although FORDs specs are more scrumbled than FIATs one.

But I cannot see how some people does not have spare tyre supplied in their cars or something else.its really shame and big MINUS for FIAT.[8D]

If I were you, I'd pin my dealer down on any items which you think are essential, then if the car is delivered with say black mirrors, you can refuse to take it unless he sorts them.

But really it depends how bothered you are about these items, how much you want (or need?) the car in a hurry and how good of a deal you are getting.

Hope you did get a good deal btw, and I'm sure when the car arrives you will be very happy;)

Stilo looks better with a few non-colour coded parts anyway i think! Abarth looks a bit too much like a blamanche all the same colour! The black rub strips, handles and mirrors give the car that final character the car needs.

Stiloboy, I agree about the black side/bumper strips, they look better, break the car up a bit, the c/coded abarth ones look a little like one of those nova types has gone mad with the spray can (IMO:D)

But I do love my handle and mirrors colour coded:D

Fiat UK sent me a Feb 04 price list today which said the Active comes with black mirrors and black inserts/side bars. Rang the dealer and asked what the car he has is & he confirmed its an Active, told him what my brochure said & he said must be a Dynamic then!! Pointed out Dynamic has colour door handles & his has black! I am not actually bothered what mirrors/sides I get, but I wish someone knew what they were doing!
