Speaking as one of John's customers, I can only say that I think that he has handled the flow of (let's face it - poor) information pretty well.

I'm sure all John's customers understand that things are not set in stone but appreciate the transparent way he communicates the information.

Each dealer will have his own method of dealing with the current lack of clarrity but I know which way I prefer and have put my money where my mouth is.

Keep up the flow of information John.

    I wasn't having a go at John especially as he's cleared up where the info came from and sorry if it came across as that. Although yet again it shows Abarth HQ needs an anatomy lesson they are still having problems telling joints from major muscles  ;D

    We can only presume the zone rep thought this info was spot on I'm sure they aren't intentionally trying to wind up their customer base, only real question I would have is why they thought this when the others obviously didn't.

    I'm still chilled though, I mentally logged my hopeful delivery date as May so anything before then is a bonus.

    Thanks for the kind words guys.
    Had an e-mail from Abarth this morning requiring us to fill in a spread sheet of everybodies orders and issue them with an order number.(If you are one of my customers you will have heard from me by now)
    Looks like things are moving in the right direction.

    Great service as always John. Looking forward to getting our new hot hatch!  :thumb:

    Do you know, I cannot remember the last time we had a front wheel drive car? I think it was the missus' Renault 5 nearly 20 years ago!

    Still, at least we're doing the sensible thing in this recession and buying two brand new cars with no discount in the first half of the year...  ???

    Not quite as good as the buy new house, 2 brand new cars and a Citroen SM within 2 months we managed some years back. Nothing quite like pushing yourself to the hilt financially.

    Definately sounds like things are moving, nobody is going to request 12 odd excel sheets they are going to have to consolidate unless they are serious or possibly completely insane.
