I'm trying to find out if the historic alloys in the brochure can be a factory option so I don't end up with a set of wheels I don't need and how much they are. Fiat uk don't see, to know and my dealer doesn't.....frustrating...

The FIAT dealers I've visited so far don't appear to be the sharpest. They don't seem to see how important this car is to the company and the need to know even the basics. It's a different experience to the likes of bmw & Audi.

It appears that just about everything in that brochure is an aftermarket accessory. Personally, I'd request a wheel swap via the dealer (and their parts department) as a condition for selling me the car, negotiating a fair trade. Some of the 124's have been sitting around on the dealer's lot for quite some time now, and they might be willing to negotiate. I actually did this once a few years ago.

Another option is to keep the stock wheels for a year or so and then sell them. By then, plenty of drivers will have scuffed up their original wheels and you may get a good price.

Smart move to make since it save you the trouble from having to take the hit on wheels with little mileage on them that only get categorized as used.

In the end it might be possible to get those other wheels at no close since there's a big sale a steak.
