I thought I'd post some things I am concerned about on the Alfa and maybe we can resolve it.
1.) There's a flat spot between 3k & 4k rpm.
Lets say you pull of from the traffic light and you plant your foot down on the accelerator pedal, it starts to accelerate and only at 4k rpm the power really kicks in. It's like a power band on a 2 stroke.
You could have your foot flat out on the gas and it seems to be dead from 3k to 4k. Is this a 2.5 v6 charactaristic or must I investigate because I can't recall this from my previous 156 V6.
2.) When the car is at operating temp. it idles strangely. It's not a smooth constant purr. It's more like it purrs purrs purrs instead of puuuuuuurrrrrrrrrr... Make sense? LOL!
3.) Not too sure what kind of fuel consumption to expect but regardless of driving style (Whether I thrash it or drive miss daisy) I always get approx. 10 KM per litre...
