I'll second that. Such as:

Creaking windscreen
Passenger door rattle
Rubbing noise from the front end at low speed
A horn that doesn't work (so many gags, so little time)
Excessive wind noise from the drivers side wing mirror

None of which Alfa seem to be able to sort out.

Not what you expect from a car that's only one month old.

Still love it though.

I just wonder if they want us to cancel so they retain some of the deposit and then can sell the cars at a higher price when they come in, suspicious minds!
Anyone else in a similar position?
Sorry to say this mate but you'll probably never get your car and you will never get any of your deposit back. I put down 1000 on 01/10/2007 for a 159 TI. I wanted to cancel within 1 or 2 weeks of paying it but even though sent several letters and e-mails I never got my money back even though I was promised a full refund in an e-mail. In the end I gave up after reading all the other threads on this forum about people who've gone through the same with either Auto Lusso or one of its previous reincarnations. It's not worth the money to take them to court as you'd probably not get anything anyway and just end up with a tumour for the stress!
