Title: When are you going to get one of these?
Post by: Neil Lewis on 28 May, 2008, 07:05:57 PM
Just wondered...

Is anyone considering getting one of these (I guess in LHD form) and when?

Much too expensive for me I'm afraid  :(

Subject to the Lancia model range at the time of choosing, I'm hoping to have saved enough to trade-in the Ypsilon for a Delta in July 2010. The date's driven by the fact I can run my Ypsi in lieu of a company car until it's 5 years old. I'm hoping to get a Delta at the year-old stage, when the first owner has suffered any epic depreciation!

Mind you, if fuel prices keep rocketing, then I'll be back into the company car scheme, taking the tax hit for the company-provided fuel and choosing a diesel from VW, Ford or Renault.  :'(

Post by: stuwilson128 on 29 May, 2008, 07:17:44 PM
I am saving the deposit now with the intention of getting one as soon as the 1.9 turbo diesel goes on sale in RHD.  I don't mind taking the hit with depreciation as I will probably keep it for more then a few years!

Ditto (blue and black) - light blue and red too pricey for an impulse purchase :-\...  God bless Mr Tang and all his minions ;D.  Had plenty of stuff from him before - he's usually good.

As for the original question, the real one will be my company car just as soon as M. Francois sees fit to sell me one.  2.0 diesel, Oro spec, if I can afford it.


Title: Re: When are you going to get one of these?
Post by: fay66 on 30 June, 2008, 05:55:14 PM
As you say, Impulse Buy ;D Mr Tang was on a "Buy Now"; I did see someone else selling the same model but the bid had got to 4.99 with a few days to go, so it was a case of the last big spenders!
Only thing is it appears to come minus a box?
Think I've dealt with Mr Tang before as well; I also want a "Star" Fulvia Series 1 Berlina to go with my Mercury original version in Blue(kept all the boxes for them ;D), but at present they are a bit pricy once you've added on the P+P,  I'm waiting in the hope that a Grey version will turn up, preferably Doncaster Grey.

Fear not, the Starline Fulvia Berlina will be cheap and everywhere soon enough!  But its a 2C I think?


Title: Re: When are you going to get one of these?
Post by: fay66 on 30 June, 2008, 10:01:13 PM
Certainly not a Normale as there are no overriders, but it could be a series 1 GT, unless it has 2c written on it anywhere it would be hard to tell, as the 2c Motif only appears on the Grille or the back panel.

Just having a look at my Mercury Model reminded me that it's actually a Normale.

Post by: fensaddler on 01 July, 2008, 08:47:24 AM
I've seen it listed on various websites as a 2C.  In that cream colour, its almost a spitting image of the car that Lee Proudfoot drives - the one formerly owned by Peter and Lin Baker and campaigned on the Historic Monte (it still has the dent!).  However I imagine the casting would lend itself not only to other colours, but also to modification into other versions.

Post by: fensaddler on 03 July, 2008, 07:16:46 PM
Always the risk when bidding for two of the same item on e-bay - you end up winning both.  So if anyone wants a dark red metallic version of the New Delta, I will have one to spare.  Unfortunately its got to come from China, so it won't be here in time for the AGM.  I'll check the price with postage once I get it confirmed, but its likely to be cheaper than the 'Buy it now' alternatives, and it'll be in the UK.  I'd rather sell it to a Lancisti than bung it back on e-bay, so let me know if you are interested.


Title: Re: When are you going to get one of these?
Post by: sparehead3 on 04 July, 2008, 10:41:21 AM
I'll have it ... to go with the integrales and S4 ... I'd actually like an old shape delta too (like yours) ... if such a thing exists ... ?


Title: Re: When are you going to get one of these?
Post by: fensaddler on 04 July, 2008, 12:28:52 PM
There's a model of the early Delta 4WD in 1.43, in silver, which is all over e-bay, and cheap.  That's the nearest to my car - with the normal delta wings and doors.  I'd love to see a standard car modelled, but so far no joy...

See for example in silver: 120278164467, 110265619939, 370065120734 and loads of others, or in red: 110267488519

But can't work out how to buy the set from the site?  Worth doing since these are going for 30 inc postage on e-bay, which is a bit steep...  Anyone got friends in Italy who can get a few?  Don't think that'sthe 86 HF 4x4 model that's in the Quattroroute set either - the lights look to be rectangular, the bumper looks like the one from the early Deltas, and the wheels look like the early alloys or steel wheels.  So well worth getting hold of.


Title: Re: When are you going to get one of these?
Post by: Peter Gerrish on 23 July, 2008, 09:46:37 AM
Ominous by it's absence is any mention of Lancia/Fiats intentions regarding New Delta warranty policy.  The general car buying public will need some incentive to buy Lancia and I think unless a three year 75,000 mile warranty is offered, why would they take a chance?
Recent publicity suggests the normal gap between what rose tinted spectacled Lancisti would like to believe and the actual truth (as told by our motoring journalists) that all modern cars are pretty good so Lancia are going to have to be better than good to stand out.
I think the new Epsilon will be easier to place in the U.K. market than the Delta, the enthusiast in me , hopes I'm wrong!
Keep 'em rolling. Peter Gerrish


Title: Re: When are you going to get one of these?
Post by: fensaddler on 23 July, 2008, 09:32:20 PM
A five year warranty is being heavily advertised for the the Bravo, I imagine Fiat UK will try a similar deal - they would undermine the brand if they did not.  I also think price and spec are going to be critical - its got to be cheaper and better equipped than the competition its pitching at, but not so cheap as to appear cheap...


Title: Re: When are you going to get one of these?
Post by: Scarpia on 24 July, 2008, 05:34:40 PM
If i read the road test here (in belgium), the journalists appear to want to like it but still come out a little unconvinced at the end .Nice engines, average handling, poshed up fiat interior is the conclusion.Not bad but your going to have to really want it to pay the price.

I think it will remain a niche purchase for buyers that simply want something a bit different.I just wish Fiat would target the niche of "exotic handbuilt sporting" cars instead.if they want to, Fiat can make the Alfa 8c so why don't they just do something a bit special with a Lancia and blow our socks off.The 8c was sold out before you got a chance to ask the price of one....

No, it will be an addition to the fleet.  I did consider letting the Lybra go, but I have become so attached to it that I feel that I would regret selling her!  The only thing that is going in order to make room is the back garden, so that the driveway can be extended  ;D

If you are buying from Auto Halan, you will be shocked by how good the service is compared to the UK. Its 7 years since I bought the last of my three Lancias there, but Melchior still phones me every birthday to wish me "happy birthday"

They also make the collection of your car a special event, your car is under a cover and they unveil it for you like a new model at a motor show. Last car I bought in the UK, just got given the keys and told it was outside somewhere


Title: Re: When are you going to get one of these?
Post by: stuwilson128 on 12 May, 2009, 01:08:44 PM
It is indeed Auto Halan that I am dealing with.  I have only been in touch by email so far and have been impressed by the level of response I have had from Melchior.

I had a similar experience last time a bought a car from a UK dealer, although I was atleast taken to the car and shown where everything was. I still got the impression the dealer was thinking 'I've got your money now so be on you way'!

Post by: fay66 on 12 May, 2009, 10:34:24 PM
I bought my Elefantino Rosso from Van Dyck Schouton in Rotterdam who also were very helpful and treated us as valued customers, even to the extent of arranging a B & B for me, and a taxi to collect me from the B & B and take me to the dealership the following morning.

Alan Cooper bought his new Delta Hpe Turbo from them before me, and I went there on Alans recommendation, and consequently another friend bought his elefantino Rosso from them, on my recommendation ;)
When I had a bump in it The Fiat Dealers in Bedford at the time (Priory Motors) were experiencing problems getting some of the parts required for the repair from Fiat/Lancia, particularily the seat belt tensioners that had fired off in the fairly low speed the crash, even though the airbag didn't ??? a call to Van Dyck soon had the parts in transit.

Your experiences of UK dealers certainly doesn't sound anything like we received when getting our Grande Punto :'(

This seems to me to be a case study in how to get it right ...

Anyone reading this board in the future would see a very well recommended Dealer ... and it's easy to see how one happy customer can lead to a chain of others.

Let us know how it goes Stuart :)

Hi Stuart

Great news. Have you decided on a colour yet ? We were in Italy a couple weeks back and were on Delta 'watch'.
Over the 3 days we spotted 15, mainly in and around Turin, they do look very distinctive on the move but as has been mentioned
before I think they are colour 'sensitive'.

I don't know if I expected to see more but our friends in Turin said they are selling reasonably well. Considering the Alfa MiTo hasn't
been out that long there were a lot of them , I suppose they are in a different (cheaper) market segment.

Look forward to seeing the car Stuart

Regards

Steve

Hi Steve.  Yes, I have decided on the colour that I want, which is Grigio Tempesta (Thunderstorm Grey).  It is about the same colour as Gunmetal grey.  I agree that the car is senstitve to colour, and think that dark colours are best.

I will let you know how I get on with ordering it!

When I first saw pictures of the Delta (before I knew what colours would be available), I thought it would look good in gunmetal grey.  From the pictures I have seen of cars in Grigio Tempesta, I think it is one of the more striking colours.

Thanks for the link Brian. Here's another pic overlooking the vineyards and River Marne.
This was 'My car' for the Sliding Pillar weekend as the Aurelia was not finished in time, I quite liked driving it, the only negative points were the bone hard ride ( it was on the optional 18" wheels) and the poor quality of some of the interior plastics. Ade

I almost bought one last weekend, it was in Sleaford. We discussed the value for money offered by C-Word Lancias at Betameeta. The guy in Sleaford wanted 4500 for a 61 plate 1.4 petrol Delta with 43K miles. I think they are great value.
My poor old Polo crashed and burned (almost literally, the fuel tank was leaking!) at it's MOT and is off to the scrap yard, so hopefully an all 'Lancia' fleet before the end of the summer.

Just took the plunge and purchased a 2012 Chrysler Delta 2.0 Multi-jet Limited- Fantastic Spec & great value. Once I pick up it will transform into a Lancia Delta 3 FL 2.0 M-j Platino. All badges sorted in & out plus grille & hub caps, next step will be engine cover, sill covers and head rests. Looks like i'm going to have to live with glazing, key fobs & Sat Nav screen.

Will do, as soon as I collect it, I will drive out of the dealers and commence the transformation- the amount depends on how many of the ordered parts have arrived and if it's raining or not, then I may have to wait until I get home.
Initially I have ordered the grille, the rear tailgate badge (& a spare), replacement wheel centre caps, rear quarter badges, steering wheel airbag cover section and initial logo stickers to cover the circular Chrysler badge on the engine cover and the headrests.

Brian, Yes the glass- that it what I was meaning by 'glazing'- I will have to live with that i'm afraid.

Cheers,

Paul

Transition Period-

Is it a Chrysler, is it a Lancia?

All the external Chrysler badges have gone. New OEM Lancia badge to rear quarters and to tailgate, also genuine centre caps to wheels. Still awaiting new black Momo Lancia grille (to match roof) & steering wheel airbag cover. Temp fix on grille (Not too clever- but better than Chrysler badge), sticker covers badge on steering wheel & on engine cover and cloth patches (latest Lancia badges) on 4 headrests.

Progress in pictures so far- First (pdf) is as it was, rest as it currently is- work in progress.

Latest pictures of transformation- New Lancia 'Momo Edition' design grille to match gloss roof, Door sill covers (Lancia transfers on carbon fibre effect trim), OE Steering wheel airbag from Italian LHD car, head rest cloth inserts (cover Chrysler wings) & glazing badges. These go along with the previously installed rear hatch badge, rear quarter badges, OE Lancia wheel centre caps & Lancia badge that completely covers Chrysler version on engine cover

I am trying to get some software to remove the Chrysler emblems that flash up upon starting the engine, but other than that, that's it.

Do you think I will be able to convince the DVLA of its new status?

Does anyone have an idea on cost of items such as grilles and badges? Assuming those that have changed things will know  ::) ;D

Can you get stuff UK based or is it order from a Fiat garage and wait?

Kevin,

All my badges, grille, wheel centre caps and complete steering wheel airbag hub were purchased from Italian Ebay, badges are a few euros each (25mm pair for rear quarters especially so) and just basically stick on if although Chrysler badging more difficult to remove than you may expect and shadow on rear glazing remains for about 6 months following removal even after plenty scrubbing & weathering. Grille was about E150, wheel centre caps (make sure you get correct ones for type of wheel fitted as they vary slightly) about E120 and airbag hub about E70. There's postage and fitting costs (not wheels) on top of these prices too.
Once you have completed all this there's still the window etching, engine cover, head rests & door sills to overcome as all have Chrysler logo's but you can see what I have done, but by far the biggest issue and most annoying point is the Chrysler electrical display on the instrument binnacle display and if fitted the Sat Nav system. Why Fiat/Chrysler went to so much trouble & expense to go to this degree to give the Delta a Chrysler identity in the UK is beyond me especially when they sold last than 800 of them.
Hope this helps.
Paul.

Excellent information Paul thanks, just the ticket.

I remember reading about the display and wondered if there's been a solution found. I also noted the headrest covers but didn't account for the originals having the Chrysler logo, again all good info.
I have noticed a few different grilles available on ebay, particular favourite is your matt black one.

Thanks again for the info, all very useful.
I'll keep my eye out for the perfect car. In the meantime my Alfa 145 may have to suffer a winter on the road.

It is interesting the prices that the Lancia versions still command in Europe compared with the Chrysler badged cars in the UK. Euro 9,000 (approx 8000) for both those 60K +mile cars is good. If the 1.9TT Diesel had come to the UK I doubt they would fetch much more than 5,000 as a Chrysler.

I like black cars, but I hate black wheels, just makes everything too dark,
Must be my age, but I completely miss the point of paying for a car in matt black ???

One question Where's poo???

With you there Brian, I just want to get the polish out when I see a matt black car  ;D Always think it'd be a giggle to get the polish mop out and write "clean me" with the mop so it's got a permanent shiny message  :D

You just missed out on Alan Cooper's Delta which he sold about six weeks ago after being for sale at the National meet in Kenilworth. It was already fully badged up as a Lancia. Not far from you too (Grimsby). Perhaps the new owner won't settle with it.....

Yes it was lovely, Alan really went to town on it, however he took it to the AGM and parked in the car park, but no one seemed interested, so I forwarded the details to a member as a little bird told me he might be looking for one.

Jan and I are very please with our new Delta 3 thanks to John Millham. As discussed previously, I would like to change the front seat head rests but apart from that and closing your eyes on start up, the C word only stays on the screen for a few seconds. Interesting about the windscreen labels though, I think I have missed where they came from, please do tell.

As an aside, why can I not attach a photo the correct way up please?
