Does any one know what number they are delivering at the moment? and do any of you who have had a delivery know their chassis number because I MIGHT be able to work out how production is going from that, it will start ZAR....................

Awesome congrats Stef..

A few others on other forums are claiming delivery this weekend or next week.

One was supposed to collect his LE yesterday afternoon. So it seems that deliveries are finally starting to take place

And seems all cars that are being delivered are RED. Reinforcing the rumours about quality issues with the white paint

I'm quite sure I'm not the only one that doesn't care THAT much about the color, they could ask if we'd reconsider...

Im not so sure about the quality issue with the white paint. I just think it takes longer to paint it white than red. And since they are eager to get cars delivered they doing a few red ones first.

Mine will be Red

Its not a simple process switching from one colour to another if they have allowed one paint line. It's a couple of days to ensure the change over is complete. So they probably will finish one colour before switching to another.

Congrats to all getting their cars.

Nobody wants a semi-Matt pink 4C now do they?

Hell, they could deliver one in purple with yellow polka dots..... and I'd be quite fine with it.

Looking forward to the photos from future owners.

Exciting times.

I honestly don't think that white LEs are delayed more than red ones. On an italian forum a guy just got delivered his white LE yesterday..

He has been on here too. Edo? But is his car not on display for a while?

And seems his car number/contract number and model car number differs.

Yes, everything right. But still, his car is at his dealer and tthey agreed to postpone the delivery to the beginning of january to avoid bureaucratic issues over xmas time and to keep it on show for a while..

I would want to do that too, but then I would need snow chains and that would, to put it mildly, lessen the experience...

In SA we got informed our cars will be built in April 2014.

Still a long ass wait for us I am afraid.

Got an email this morning, my book is waiting for me together with a letter saying that my car will be manufactured during April. Not the end of the world as we're in the middle of winter here but quite a delay as it was supposed to be delivered last November!

Spider 105,

No issue changing colour , can be done in seconds on a line , i have seen a red car followed by a white , followed by a black . Without the line stoping or slowing . Only a few moments between them ...

As far as I know, the cars leave the line at some point to get painted and then return to the factory. So the process here may be different
