Welcome to AO.
A couple of guys on here have just bought V6's. You need to dig out "macp" and "flish". macp has had his a few weeks now, so he must be suffering the first fuel bills by now. I think flish is in the process of blowing up his local bank, so he may not have got his mitts on his yet.
Like all Alfas it will not be as well screwed together as your Toyota, but you can't have everything! CO2 emissions are off the clock if you are running it as a company car. The engine is heavy and the car can feel a bit nose heavy when really cracking on through the twisty bits, but nothing you wil worry about unless you perform perfect four wheel drifts every morning on the way for the paper.
The engine is not much more torquey than the 2.0, and certainly not after your turbo, so it does need revving to get the best from it, but sounds glorious when you do! If fuel bills are a worry, I can recommend the throbby JTD.
