What have I started!!!!!!
If I can add my 2 pence worth.....I have had Alfa's all my life, Sud's, Sprint's, 33s, 156s, and my last car before I sold her was a well and truly cherished 3.0 V6 GTV and now finally my GT 3.2. I know how these cars should drive and I have driven a few 3.2s before I bought mine. I can absolutely assure you that this is neither me getting used to the characteristics of the car following work nor something that I imagined.
This was a real black and white night and day problem, clearly noticeable at motorway speeds where the car would try to apply an input after a delay. Following a sharp flick left or right or under power or sudden lift off at higher speeds the car would apply an input which would make the car wobble which I could feel and even see with my own eyes as the steering wheel would move suddenly about an inch and stop, this was not in my imagination!!!! Reading more about the VDC it absolutely sits consistently with a very quick and small amount of braking on one side causing the 'wobble' and effect on the steering.
I have seen the VDC lights flash before under hard low down acceleration and the lights briefly flashed when the car was scrabbling for grip for over a second. However this input which caused the wobble was so quick and at higher speeds that I can't honestly say I noticed it if it had come on as my eyes would have firmly been on the road.
Since the unplugging of both fuses and driving, having the engine warning light come on and then go off the issue above does NOT happen anymore and the car is still driving perfectly. I can assure you I am not imagining this either!
As to what has fixed the car I have no idea, if people are adamant that unplugging the fuses couldn't have fixed the car then I'm ok with that but in that case something has started to work again as it should and exactly at the time when I plugged the fuses back in and the engine warning light went off. For me this is far too much of a coincidence but I'm not ruling the possibility out...cars can behave very strangely!
I believe the places who have looked at it have done what they believe should be done on the car and from previous knowledge of what the cause could be but perhaps missed this as it was such an unusual symptom. I'm not going to knock anyone I've taken the car into as the work carried out did need to be done and has contributed to a perfectly handling car. Maybe the only outcome I'd like from this (now that I'm in love with my GT) is perhaps this issue could be taken into consideration for any other GTs which come in with similar symptoms so that the issue could be nailed first before any other work is done.
Cheers all for comments and share the Alfa love!
