There is a gleaming white Delta in pride of place at the dealership near me. Must get round to stopping to have a look!

Now joined by an Ypsilon in the same colour. The car does look a bit dumpy in real life, but the relatively larger grille makes it look even more Lancia. Thumping price tag of 16K on it though. That's 3K more than I paid for my high spec Polo last year. However, does somehow cheer me up every time I drive past!

Went and had a look yesterday and was very impressed with the Ypsilon, I still don't like the two tone bonnet but you can have two tone without the bonnet which should look much better, the nearly 16K figure is right at the top the range, one I looked at had the twin air turbo engine that once they have PDI'd it I'm welcome to go and try Grin  the official launch is 1st October and at present they don't even have brochures but they start at around 12K, I'll post prices and photos later, Laurance the same salesman from when I had a look at the Delta, says his area Manager is very receptive to checking if they can get the badges and says it shouldn't be a problem to do if anyone wants them to do it.
Ypsilon would be a lot easier as besides the glass and the grille there are only 2 other Chrysler logos, the tailgate glass and the steering wheel. not counting the alloy wheel centres.
All the Sales people I spoke to were enthusiastic at having a small car to sell.

Actually saw my first non dealership demo UK Chrysler Delta on the road yesterday being driven by a woman. Presume that she'd bought it as there were no stickers on the sides etc. It was a white car with white roof. Felt a bit sad really seeing a Delta but badged as a Chrysler  Sad

Yes, saw my first 'owned' Delta this week too (White/black roof). As above I think it's nice to see them myself. Would be better to see them badged as Lancias I agree, but it still puts a smil on my face for some reason

Photos from the other day, still need to copy the price list and specs.
Note strange object sticking out from the RH windscreen pillar, this is the new built in TomTom mounting, no cradles, suckers or trailing power leads needed.
on the white car just forward of the front wheel is a radar sensor, this part of the self parking set up.

Can't say I've seen the fuel filler flap arrangement before, there isn't a filler cap as such, closing the flap seals the filler neck.

Still more,
typical is that the machined surfaced of the engine mounting bracket is going rusty already, our Grande Punto was the same, why the heck doesn't Fiat rust treat them Huh?

Thanks for the pics Brian. As I said I think the car looks particularly 'Lancia', especially the White one viewed from the front. Don't think the silver/black works though. Looks like a
disguised test car.

According to Chrysler's CEO, 354 new Deltas sold in Uk in September. Not too bad since it was only officially launched on 19th. Perhaps some are dealer demos.

Hi Neil,
Must admit I like the white,the two tone isn't black but a metallic bronze so lousy lighting and using my Blackberrys camera did the rest Roll Eyes

great pics Brian. Not a fan of the two tone at all, it looked good on the last Ypsilon, but not the current one.

354 Delta sold in Sept (obviously incl dealer demo) is a good start. Not sure how many Chrysler dealers are in the UK, but even if every dealer done a demo registration on one then it'd still be fairly decent. Hopefully Chrysler can keep this up, must be bringing some badly needed traffic into Chrysler showrooms!

Chrysler Ireland whilst being quick off the mark to put Delta & Ypsilon on its website have done nothing since then, no updates, nothing! I had heard there were press cars in Ireland, but seems strange not to have any further updates on the site. But atleast the UK seems to have gotten its act together.
