Unhappy 4C has arrived

5 months early, totally out of the blue. Dealer had no idea it was arriving. Downside is I leave for China tomorrow for an extended period.

Thanks all, dealer had no prior notice the guy with the Iveco low loader was sat waiting for them to open, to top it all the master technician who is the only one allowed to do the PDI is on the costa's for a fortnight. Some pretty bad buffer trails on the paint, so I phoned the 4C specialist in Slough to complain and he told me it hadn't been built yet!

Maybe it's not your 4C, maybe it's somebody else's and the delivery schedules got mixed up.

4C specialist in Slough is messenger back to Torino, given Alfa's ability to go off piste I had wondered if it was actually mine, and a week later the dealers system shows it at the status level for delivery.

Car looks good, the delivery shambles sounds familiar Mine turned up three months early - first I knew about it was a phone call saying it was on a transporter from Modena. As surprises go, I've had worse!

I was just disappointed it arrived the day before I left for China, if I'd had say a weeks notice could have stayed in UK a bit longer.

Future 4c

My 4C SE in white has arrived a week ago after waiting 7 months after ordering. I am living in Charlotte, NC USA but my dealer is in Greer, SC, about 100 miles away. Anyway the 4C is going to be my DD and so far I enjoy every minute of it. It gets a lot of attention everywhere I go, with people taking pictures and asking questions. Will post some pictures soon.

Mine was ordered in Jan 2014 for Dec 2014 delivery. Heard nothing. When I followed up in March 2015 I was told Dec 2015. A month ago dealer told me it had arrived out of the blue. I can't manage the finances on a discretionary purchase like that, so I let it go. I may regret it, but see it is still in their show room

Shambolic. What a way to sell cars/ treat customers. So poor.

Cheers,
