Hi guys and girls
Just picked up my JTD GT yesterday, my first Alfa! It's great.
First impressions are excellent
handling, comfort, steering, seats are miles better than my previous BMW Sports seats imo.
A couple of things concern me tho....
Is there an option of adjustable steering column? My car doesn't have one, but really wish it did! Is it do-able to change a non adjustable one for an adjustable coloumn, if there is such a thing?
Also it's the JTD; great engine but runs out of puff a 100mph, is this usual???
Also it feels very 'deceptive' compared to other diesels; ie theres no real sudden turbo surge, just linear acceleration, more like a non turbo petrol car. It feels like your not getting anywhere until you look at the speedo and its on 50! lol
it's great fun but just wondering if perhaps mine is a little down on ooomph?? With these diesel engines do you get the typical woomph when the turbo kicks in or is it a low boost type unit? I just want to make sure everythings ok with mine before i loose cocntact with the dealer. I'm just nervous as I have been the victim of being sold 'lemons' twice in the last year
Really don't hope this happens with this Alfa as I think its FANTASTIC!!! and would like to keep it for a couple of years.
It's done 27k.
Would it be worthwhile testing the MAF sensor on mine?
Plus anyone know how do i tell what model it is? e.g Lusoo/Veloce or whatever, i heard from someone at Auto Lusso mention that the specs are confusing on GTs as they differ to that availiable on 147s??
