Alfadoit: You hit the nail!
I loved driving my GT, it was really great to accelerate in town, and turning on secondary roads was exciting as well. Of course, it was surprising how after seven years it still drew so much attention on the Street. Great car indeed!
But problems were there too, such as the always present small noises, hard suspension, unprecise gearshift lever, rear visibility, heavy doors, etc, which didn't bother me at all, but my wife couldn't stand.
All those comfort issues have now been fixed, at the Price of driving a not-so-exciting car.
Thanks for your good wishes, I'm sure we will all enjoy our cars, Alfa or else.
Of course, an Alfista will always keep his Alfa in his heart.
Best wishes for all !
