Six months later..............
Well after six months as an Alfaowner the V6 has a firm grip on my heart.-Reliable-yes reliable- fun to drive and sure footed indeed.
No not the luxury of my old A8 Audi but I feel I have been there and done that.
Pros of the Alfa are:
Love the Q system transmission-[best of both worlds]
Most of all that sweet growl of the v6.[lovely engine]
Comfortable driving position
Good quality leather interior
Fantastic brakes with no squeal
Leg room in the rear
Annoying shut down of all electrics with key in off position [needs an aux mode]
Glove hatch is poor design.
Turning lock [but happy to forgo this for the awesome handling]
