Re: New Gt from Auto lusso
Several people on here have the 1.9 GT and seem to love it, so I doubt you'd be disappointed with it. The GT seems to be holding its value better than previous Alfas, possibly due to the limited initial supply of them.
Auto Lusso is the new trading name for a company that used to trade as Smart Alfa. Over on the General Discussion forum, there is an enormous topic entitled "Smart Alfa - Liars and Misselling", which I suggest you read.
In summary, some people on here have bought cars from Smart Alfa and had no problem whatsoever. Some others paid deposits, haven't received their cars, and are having difficulty getting their deposits returned.
I've had no direct experience with them, so I have no axe to grind either way.
Ultimately, it's up to you to decide whether the saving you can make with Auto Lusso is worth the risk.
It might be worth having a good long chat with your franchised dealer - the one near me has some good deals on GTs at the moment.
