Pity wheels aren't better visible. I have impression they are of the first series car (1978-79 in case of the RHD model), but who can be sure with this view...

S2 arrived here May 82 so very tight for film date. S1 arrived UK May 78. I didn't notice vinyl when watching normally, but I can see why you've suggested it from captures.

It means that between the 1980 and 1982 the 1st series was still available in UK (like in Italy) or that it wasn't offered in this period at all?

As far as I know Gamma saloon and Coupe were both fully available here without interruption May 78-Jan 85.

Thne this later change of series is interesting. Till now I thought that the S1 had longer life only at home.

Neither version sold well in UK - keeping it on the price lists may have been an attempt to shift unsold stock 80-82, although without new RHD production in those years. I remember about 1986 a scrappie in Orkney already having 2 derelict saloons due to engine failure which were crushed because no-one locally would touch them and values were so low they were not worth shipping elsewhere.

The series II arrived in Italy in April 1980. Some series I were still available since the car was a real flop, but I can't say the availability lastel until 1982. It was actually deleted months before the launch of the Thema, because they had plenty of unsold series IIs.

That's right - since 1980 MY both models were available in Italy. I read once, that the s1 was offered till 1982.
(I prefer face of the s1. :p )
