Launch Date?

Does anyone know the launch date of the Tempra in the U.K., and what sort of spec launch models had please?

I've accidentally bought a 1.8 SX i.e. and I think it's an early one - didn't realise at the time. There are only 2 x 1.8 SX i.e.'s listed on that well known site (if you can believe it), and this is the only one from 1990.

This one was registered 20/9/1990 and looks a nice spec. Doesn't really matter, but if it turned out to be early that's a nice bonus!

Hopefully not for a while! I quite like this photo with a better view of ASM.



Thanks Charlie. A few people have said September 1990, so I think it's launch month at least. Apparently the Fiat dealer is (amazingly) still going in the Lakes, so I might try contacting them - would be a good trip to get a picture in front of the dealer anyway!

Re: Launch Date?

Dealer still with FIAT..remarkable.

As an aside..our old 156 was pre.launch press car..you may be lucky..

I know, small local good quality family owned dealer - I was sure a Fiat culled all of these in the 1990s!
