I would have hoped by next July but will have to await allocations to see when is most likely.

Tried that but he's evasive and preoccupied with other "things".

Did he sort this out before he took off to go tend his "barn"?

Not entirely. I'm still on track for the 2nd customer car but he wasn't sure when that would mean delivery to me but guestimated end of summer. I heard yesterday that Lovetts are only getting 8 for the whole of 2012 so UK allocation is going to be small which is good news for residuals on both coupe and spider

Current: F50, 246 GT (x 2), 246 GTS
Past: 360M, F430 spider, 430 Scuderia,
California (x 2), 458 Italia (x 2), 458 spider, 246 GT

Not sure I would use Lovetts as a benchmark, they may well have ended up with a smaller allocation as a reward for some of their prior behavior.
