Had a call from Mango's this afternoon to say that my Brera is still Status 30
its been that for 2 weeks now.
I'm pretty ****ed with Alfa Romeo (not Mangos I might add) !!
I ordered it at the end of Jan paid my cash deposit with a supposed 12-16 week delivery !! which makes it about now, I have an email from Mangos in early April with a expected delivery date into the dealer around the 25th May give or take a week.
But the build/delivery appear to have slipped since and I assume the reason has been caused by the Spider LE's & the Brera S (now in Chris Variava's Showroom) with no firm orders these cars have been pushed to the front of the MY08 build queue at the expense of the actual firm paid deposit customer orders
So looking at David Whitton's delivery schedule (thanks David) ....
"From status 20 to 40 could take 2-3 weeks as and average and once in 40 2-3 weeks to dealer, this would normally be 2 weeks but the volume going through the PDi centre is higher than normal
and other gleened delivery info.....
With my car being status 30 it should be a week to 10 days to status 35. (mines been 2 weeks at 30)
35 to 40 (delivered to UK) a week
40 to the dealer worst case 3 weeks due to current volumes
So if I follow it correctly I still could have another 4/5 weeks to wait which takes me to the 20th or 27th June...... 21 - 22 weeks !
