Got mine today! Rumour has it that only a handful reached Italy, but I
annoyed my dealer so much that he HAD to sell me the only piece he's
recieved in order to get rid of me :-).

Mine has the same features as yours. The serial # is more precisely in
the 38156xx range.

This weekend is going to be Apo-Asph or bust! :-))
