    Hi everyone,

    Ordered a Pista in early June last year and don‘t know when it will arrive... Dealer says, the reason for the extended waiting time is due to a production problem with the roll cage for the Pistas...

    Does anyone have any infos?

    Best regards

    Wow! June of last year?? I ordered in April and I’m anxious. I have not heard about this delay as there have been plenty of deliveries. Hope you get it sorted out soon.

    Roll cage was a late option on Pista.
    I was offered one last October but could not be told when it would be available.
    My understanding is that it is purely cosmetic and has a negative impact on vision, weight and cabin space.
    I passed but understand why you might want it depending on spec.

    So then can you get it finished in carbon fiber? ;)

    Any pics of this roll cage? Is it a roll cage or a roll bar for the harness?

    Yes correct - roll bar would be a better way of calling it; as it only goes around the B-pillar. Not an actual full body cage.

    I decided to choose it, as we are planning to take it to track...

    Also, when I hear "production problem", I immediately cancel anything causing it. You don't want to be the test mule to see if the problem ever got resolved.

    A full cage isn't road legal anyway.

    Why not just buy a challenge car? It would swipe the floor with the Pista in any track twice!
