Sounds slightly familiar. When we ordered my significant other's Giulietta at the launch event back in June 2010, we were promised it for 1st September registration which was great as that very day was a significant birthday for the lady in question. She finally got her present on 2nd October, .

The 8C paint we'd ordered was blamed for the delay - it needed extra 'attention to detail' resulting in the car missing the last ship out of Italy before they shut down for the whole of August for 'le vacanze estive', . I know the agonies we went through awaiting the G so you must be finding it unbearable, .

Spotted a white 4C near Warwick the other day. I was in my 147 GTA, so i gave a flash and a wave and got a wave back. Super looking car.

I almost forgot that I was an Alfisti until I spotted a 4C driving through Chippenham last weekend. Awesome car!

4C Spotted Thread

I can't believe there isn't already a 4C spotted thread (well I can't find it anyway).

I have now seen twice a White 17 plate coupe in Canary Warf twice in a week.

If you are here, did you get it because of me driving through there every night with the windows down listening to the exhaust and turbo flutter bouncing off the skyscrapers? A little piece of me hopes I influenced your purchasing decision

Spotted a couple of 4C's (other than mine) in the parking lot at Blemhiem Palace yesterday near Oxford.


Anyone from the forum?

How good was the calibre of vehicles at the show yesterday.

I saw a yellow 4C in the vicinity of Salisbury/Stonehenge yesterday afternoon - yellow, though? It's a beautiful car, but yellow? It's a bit like having red leather seats - I just don't get it.

Spotted a white 67 reg 4C at my local dealer. Talking to the Quadrifoglio Tech, the owner hit a speed bump at high speed and they suspect the tub has been damaged underneath (the front numberplate was sitting on the dash). He said if it has it will have to go back to Maserati to be stripped and then everything put back on a new tub (assuming this is economically viable?). Car can only be 5 weeks old at most.

Ouch. You definitely wouldn’t catch me hitting speed bumps at high speed if it were mine!

One parked on an extremely narrow 2-way residential street in Juan Les Pins yesterday.
A street that recently suffered 6 kicked-in door mirrors one night.

Brave man.

Not seen a 4C for a while but saw a white one in the multi storey car park in Basingstoke at lunchtime.

It was about 10 spaces from a misano blue Giulia!

Hope you enjoyed your shopping trip!!
