Hi All,

Havent seen a 500 yet, just online but have gone from a 1.3 diesel in Lounge spec to something more meatier.

I went to the dealer today and put my name down for a 500 Abarth (SS version if they definitely make it) and if I can choose it in any colour then Funk White.

Dealer reckons about a year wait for the Abarth and another year to have it in Funk White. (All Funk Whites are 18-24 month wait, they only make 2 a day in that colour for the whole of Europe he says).

He reckons that 2010 for the SS, if it goes ahead but hopefully that will change, so whatever I end up going for I am looking at about a 2 year wait.

:bang: :bang: :bang: :bang:

I am not very patient but its more of a long term plan.

I have finally decided what kind of car I want, what size etc etc, so I will keep my lovely Leon FR in the meantime and either sell it or trade in nearer the time, so I will be having loads of fun while I am waiting.

I just hope I wont have to wait until 2010 :eek:

Yeah he said £700 but I guess if you are going to spend that kind of money you might as well spend a bit more to get exactly what you want. I think all the colours look fab but the Funk is the one I really want and if I got the other white I know I would have regretted not waiting.

Oh well I better forget about the car for the next few months I guess :p

I can't understand the people that have put down deposits on a car they have never even seen in the flesh yet. Nevermind someone who has put down a depsit on a car that might never be put into production and if it is won't get it for 2 years. :confused:

But on the other side, its your money. :)

I haven't spoken to him personally but have seen his comments in the Italian press. I have spoken to Giulio Salomone however!

Go on put your money on the table.:devil:
