Thanks all!

In the previous months I had the chance to sit in the 4C various times, but only today I was able to hear the engine sound: really unbelievable! It's hard to explain how loud it is, I can assure you that no video seen so far captures the loudness of the whole thing.. amazing!

We could ask 'em to state whether they already got their 4C or not
As to me, it is currently at the dealer, in a couple of weeks I should finally get it!!

Yes, apparently it's a matter of weeks rather than days.

In Italy the registration needs to be performed in Turin (and this applies not only to LE, but also to all standard 4Cs), due to the special Type Approval used for the 4C, which currently limits yearly production for EU markets to 1k cars per year.

If it's weeks maybe the registration is done in Napoli, not Torino .


OFF TOPIC:
Since you're from Milano - what's the status of the Museo Storico currently?

As long as I know it's still closed, but to be honest I'm not the most informed person on Earth on the subject..

On Friday I'm eventually fetching the car at the dealer. AR is organizing a small event in connection to my actual delivery, hope it'll be fun.
Pics will follow anyway!

On saturday I'm going to Geneva as AR invited me to their stand and offered two free tickets, still deciding whether driving there in the 4C or not!

I reply here to Deppi0's PM as apparently I'm unable to work it out differently

I was invited in Geneva by a so called 4C Team of AR Italy (never heard about them before).
They called me up a couple of weeks ago to ask me whether I was interested in two tickets for the show, either for friday 6th or for saturday 7th.

I received them just yesterday by regular mail. In the enclosed letter they also state that I'll be welcome to the buffet lunch to be held between 1pm and 2pm at their stand!

Looking forward to that!

Before you drive up there, make sure you get the dates right. 6th is tomorrow and friday is the 7th. But I'm sure it would be worth it just for the drive in your new 4C even if you can't enter the salon.
