850 sounds like a lot of cash for conversion, but if the car is delivered with everything attached it's not bad value. The Fiat 500 we bought in 2008 had the chrome pack fitted before delivery and Fiat charged an extra 1000.00 for few bits of trim one of which was fitted on the bonnet off center. Smiley

In IRL The 1st of June was the 'official' change (from a parts perspective at least) over, with Chryser joining Fiat. All the existing Chryser Dealerships found themselves to be unable to order parts. In one bizzare case, an existing Chryser Dealer, who is also a Fiat and Alfa Dealer also found thmselves unable to order parts. I had a request from one of our customers to order a part for a jeep, as when he called into his local Jeep Dealership, they told him he would have to go to a Fiat Dealer. At present there are 2 Chrysler /Jeep Dealers in Dublin, with maybe 5 or 6 for the rest of the country. As most, if not all of these also hold multiple franchises.  I would also go so far as to say that those previous Chrysler Dealers who 'lost out' when the changeover occured, are probably not that bothered. I would also surmise that the last thing on any of their minds, would be Lancia.

Fiat/Chrysler need to get their act together quick. The Delta (Lancia) has been on sale in mainland Europe for three years now so is at least a four year old design. It has just had it's mid life "nip & tuck" so it's replacement must be in the pipeline (2013-14?). At this rate by the time it gets here it will be left behind by all its fresher rivals (Astra/Focus/Giulietta/Golf etc) and at the end of this year there is the new A3 & 1-series with a new A-Class coming early 2012.

It was a fantastic car at launch but time moves on so I can see it being criticised when it eventually get's here despite being good value, spacious, well equipped and relatively well screwed together.

When the Ypsilon & delta do finally arrive in UK dealerships there is a company out there that will convert Chryslers to Lancia spec or simply import  new RHD Lancias from the continent. This way they will be registered as Lancias. They will also import and ensure UK legislation of used LHD Lancia's so they claim. Final details are TBC, however have a look at their website www.superveloce.net

Does anyone know of them?

Finally, some movemet on the Chrysler UK website. Two logos featuring the Delta and Ypsilon but when you click on them it comes up with a "register your interest form" and that's it!

I have just taken delivery of a 2007 LHD Ypsilon from Mark Robbins who runs Superveloce. It took some time to source/drive back/make street legal/pass VOSA/DVLA/HMRC requirements. I can say that VOSA have raised the bar considerably with regard to accepting personal imports even from the EU (parallel import). It had to have an IVA (Individual Vehicle Approval) so the car is scrutinized to a level above MOT. This has come about because of the low standard of grey imports mainly from Japan. Mark personally guided the Ypsilon through all these hurdles. The contradictory bureaucracy drove me mad! However, it was worthwhile and I am very pleased with the result and professional way Mark handled it all. I know he is involved with FIAT UK in getting the Chrysler rebadged as a Lancia and he has an order already!

That's very interesting.  Does it indicate that Fiat knows there are customers in the UK who are much more likely to buy the cars with a Lancia badge, and is prepared to bend the rules a little to facilitate rebadging?  Sounds encouraging if this is the case.

My local Chrysler dealer (Drayton Wolverhampton) has "Delta is coming" displayed prominently across it's windows. I'm surprised they're not trailing the Ypsilon more.

Currently in the US on holiday at the moment - when the kids are in bed I get to watch some US television (yuch)

there are Chrysler ads running currently re the 2011 model line up & the Delta is definitely missing from these, so looks as if it's a little slow over here too.
Have seen 2 Fiat 500s on the roads here though.

I don't believe Delta and Ypsilon are going to make it to the US. Shame, they could have easily exploited the wave of interest that's carried the 500 along.

Yeah both Delta & Ypsilon American adventures have been canned as fiat think the Ypsilon will simply clash with 500, & Dodge will get their own version of Alfa's Giulietta so Chrysler doesn't see the need for Delta also.

I still like them, but just as they arrive, I'm leaving...  No sign of them making it to Australia.
