This topic is a bit of fun.

If you've seen a Lancia around, let everyone know they've been spotted. One day you might even see yourself mentioned!

Hi all, after telling a friend of mine that I have never seen a Monte on the road, except at shows ect , he keeps seeing one being driven by a lady in Walthamstow, East London. He thinks it is Blue/ green in colour. Anyone know of this car, regards Paul D

I saw the new Ypsilon (in cream/ ivory) driving south on the M1 not too long ago - a rare site indeed over here.  Just as I cought it up it pulled over onto the slip road  :cry: That probably saved me embarassment as I usually flash, wave and mouth the words Lancia as I go by, but given that I'm not in a Lancia on a daily basis the onlooking drivers usually think I'm quite mad!

Compared to the other small cars on our roads the Ypsilon certainly had more panache.  Nice

Yes, tempting... but any spare cash I have must go towards the existing Lancia I already have, else it won't be getting anywhere near Turin this summer!  Furthermore, by getting my Fulvia on the road maybe someone will post a note on this string after spotting me :wink:

Meanwhile I'll keep playing the lottery as that's the only way I'll get the ypsilon, 'grale, aurelia, flaminia.........

Another new Ypsilon sighting - a smart metallic claret example, Italian registered, that appeared down the road from me in Peckham of all places. It must have felt as out of place as that north american bird that washed up in Peckham having been blown 3000 miles across the Atlantic, but perhaps with rather more hope of getting home again!

Hi All,
 
A new Ypsilon in Ivory turns up from time to time & parks around the corner from me in Bedfordshire, it's on German plates.

Talking of importing Ypsilon, I imported a new Elefantino Rosso(Great Car) from rotterdam in 1999, it had left hand drive headlamps (not centre dipped as suggested by some) & it had a Kilometres Speedo.
While you can get around the speedo by having a MPH overlay made , I have an address for someone who will do so for about 90 & your speedo for a couple of weeks.

THERE IS NO WAY around the headlamp problems, unless you have a friendly MOT tester when it comes to MOT time, who will pass it with the relevant part taped off,  strictly speaking even then it shouldn't pass as the regulations do not allow for this,  it also forbids beam benders fitted long term.

So the only way to get it registered in UK is on the basis if you don't want the DVLA to tell you it doesn't comply, don't ask the question.

When I brought mine in I was told that the Certificate of Conformity was being changed from reading that the vehicle met European specifications, to that it was a LHD vehicle, fitted with LHD Headlamps & A Kilometre Speedo, if this is now the case, you can only hope that whoever deals with the paperwork at the DVLA doesn't understand Italian.Dutch, German. or whatever language the C of C is written in.

I would be interested to know how the companies who currently offer to import Ypsilon, Thesis, get around this problem, I have emailed some of them & asked specifically how they get around the headlamp problem so that the imports are legal, to date I have not received a reply from any of them.
