GT Review Curiosity

Hi all

I was reading a review on Parkers Guide and I came across this, I've highlighted the statement that is in question. Does anyone know if this is correct, it's not in the manual. Surely they must be talking about the ASR switch next to the fuel flap switch?

from £6k to £13k.

The GT is quite accommodating for a coupe, with space in the back for two adults - a trick that most other coupes in this class cannot match. At speed, it's pretty quiet, although the roar of the V6 can be heard when desired. Ride quality is good, soaking up the lumps and bumps without rolling excessively in corners or feeling too harsh over bumps.

Unlike Alfa's earlier coupé, the GTV, the GT has a decent boot and is a far more practical proposition. And while it might look like only a small saloon car boot aperture, in reality the whole rear opens up as a hatchback. Split folding rear seats give even greater luggage space.

All models are well equipped including dual-zone climate control, trip computer and alloy wheels. The now discontinued V6 version gets leather which is optional on other models.
Behind the wheel
The cabin is Alfa Romeo at its best and full of Italian flair. It's comfortable and has a feel good factor that's missing from many of its competitors. The leather seats are impeccably finished and little touches - like the Italian on the dials (the words for the petrol gauge, revs, speed etc) make it feel special. There's a good driving position with plenty of adjustment in the seat and steering wheel. The sloping roofline and thick pillars mean that visibility - both front and rear - isn't great. All the controls are well within reach and generally easy to use although there are some curiosities such as the stability control on/off switch which doubles as the fuel filler flap release.

They are on the same panel and so are next to each other, think they may be getting confused. On early GT's they are down near the handbrake and on later ones near the menu and headlight adjustment switches.
