Thought I'd give you an update on my long running saga.
After sending a letter to my dealer saying I wanted to cancel my order, they called me back to offer me with my deposit back or that they could re-order the car directly through Alfa UK as they are now doing and to get it to me in 12 weeks.
So I let them re-order is and I last week they called to say the car would be in the country on 7th July eek! eek!
Advantage now being, I am getting a UK car for import money, I get 3 years AA which I wouldn't have on the import. So hopefully I'll get treated better by Garages becuase it's a UK sourced car (though i wont hold me breath). Plus it should resell for me not being an import, though I've always thought this to be nonsense but this is what I'm told.
Also having waitied so long and reading good things about it I decided to treat myself to an extra option and added the climate pack when they re-ordered it.
Also sad to say I changed the colour as well. Have changed from Gabby blue with red leather to Stirling grey with Red leather.
The reason I did this in the end was because I am almost certainly going to get a 147 GTA in 1-2 years time and I feel that silver and red will sell better than the gabianno blue with red.
Stirling grey was always my second choice and as long as it has red lether I'll be as happy as Larry.
So 7 weeks to go
