I'm new to this board. I just got my Alfa 147 Selespeed (silver) with Momo black leather seats on Tuesday (imported through www.alliancecarimports.com,
excellent service & price) and it is an absolute beauty [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
I've topped up the 2y warranty to 3y by calling the Alfa Romeo customer service in the UK for £279.00 (incl. VAT).
note: the dealer wanted £500.00 ...
It really rocks!
Now for the not so good part although I'm not too worried about it because I read this forum before ordering the car so I was fully aware of the small gremlins [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] anyway here is the list of ennoyances I had so far after 100 miles:
1) VDC System Failure (after just 22 miles)
2) Error Glow Plug
3) Humidity in Diesel
4) Selespeed System Failure
note: my car got out of the factory in Italy mid-february.
2) & 3) just appear for a fraction of second.
4) appears for 2/3 seconds and goes away.
I must admit that I smiled inside when I got my 1st VDC System Failure [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] I was so expecting it after reading all the comments in this forum.
I went to the dealer to book the car for a fix and the guy was so aware of these pbms [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] It did not even question anything.
Although when I mentionned a new switch for the VDC System Failure he said it was only an adjustment.
What is it exactly? A new one or just an adjustment?
Anyway, it's just too good a car to ruin my day [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] The Selespeed is just great!
Have a good day all.
