I heard from my dealer last week asking for my final spec as RHD production had started. The dealers get to drive the 4C at Donnington Friday 4th April. Not sure if they will be driving RHD or LHD.

My dealer asked for my spec a month or so ago, if we see the cars this time next year I'll be surprised.

Guess there must be a good number of lucky new owners out there, as they are building 12 a day. It therefore follows there must be the same number of deliveries ------ somewhere!

They're allegedly building RHD LEs in April. I still don't have a due date for my LE.

You are right. All 4C service dealers should of done there training. Tooling arrived last month. Sales training is today, Thursday and Friday. Press day was Monday and Tuesday I think.

Some LE have vin numbers so should we with dealers this month. Rest of the LE build this month for May delivery.

I would guess the early orders std cars should be built May / June.

Squadrone Rosso it was great at donnington today just hope it does not rain Thursday / Friday as will make driving interesting.

Well, both dealers who know I am interested, and the one with the deposit have ignored 4 emails in the last month, and I'm moving beyond "tired of waiting" towards "really hacked off"

Confirmed it is coming to Western Perth. Hasn't arrived yet and typically i'm away on a course till Friday bet I don't see it. I'm sure the customer will be eager to get hold of it so you better be quick. It already comes PDI'd so would presume the customer would get it quickly.

Shame :-(

Somebody will be along soon no doubt to tell you it's not Alfa's fault and it's actually a Porsche conspiracy to prevent people seeing the car
