What a beauty! I would love to own one (*with a manual transmission only*), but with only 124 being sold I can't help but think that most of them are already claimed by certain VIPs. I'm interested to find out how Fiat is going to determine who gets one.

I went to my local fiat dealer and asked him to provide me info on how to get on the waiting list and/or sign up for the preorder. I asked if I could put down a deposit/hold, he said not yet. I have not heard anything yet. It's been a week. They also sell Alfa's and took preorders for the 4c. Fingers crossed.

yeah it would be nice if this color was offered on regular models. But for me i am ok because i am at the top of the waiting list for the special edition at my dealer.
That and 25 cents gets you a cup of coffee. The dealers don't know how Fiat will distribute these. There are 210 Fiat dealers and 124 cars. So if they go to dealers each dealer wont even get one.

The Managers at the dealers I have contacted have told me they have not started wait lists, because they have not been given any information from Fiat.

So people with deposits down already could be left without one. Any idea when Fiat would contact the dealers about it?
Dealers are independently owned and operated. Dealers can do what they want. But Fiat, from what I have heard, have not given dealers information on the roll out of this car. Any dealer taking deposit's is just making money off your money.

So yes, from my understanding, a deposit with a dealer at this point means nothing,

Just got this from another Dealer.

We are currently taking $2,000 dollar deposits on the 124 spider. There is one person on the list, I cannot guarantee a Prima Edizione Lusso edition because there are only 124 being built. Leaving a deposit is the best chance to get your hands on a Prima.

Emailed back to see if its a refundable deposit, and if in the past the dealer has charged a premium for limited editions cars.
