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.

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!

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...

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....

Well, I finally have the wheels in motion for getting a new Delta 1.9 Twin Turbo Platino.  I have the funds in place and am planning to go to Amsterdam on Wednesday 27th to place my order with the hope of taking delivery in September.   Grin

Well done Stuart,
Will it be an addition to your fleet, or will something have to go to make room Cry.

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  Grin

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

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'!

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 Wink
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 Huh? 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 Cry

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 Smiley

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
