Just replaced my 12yo bmw with the above... my first Alfa. It's a beautiful car to look at, but...
If you can forgive the BM, which of the following should I worry about (none of which I would expect in a 2006 car with 46,000KM
). It's still under warranty... for a few more months!
Cold start: misses a bit at idle, lousy throttle response to 2000 rpm and then takes off like a startled rabbit. Misses a little when warm idling, too.
Gearbox: Definitely feel synchro baulk/crunch 1->2 and 2->3. Didn't do this when I test drove it, seems to come and go, but not silky like the 186,000km BM's box. Gearbox or diff seems a bit whiny on 2nd gear over-run, too. Not to mention a bit of drivetrain backlash.
VDC operates occasionally for no reason. Mainly on downslope acceleration in 2nd. "wirefree" and co. have noted this one, too.
Anything I should get done under warranty? It's had the PAS pump replaced, so one down...
Any advice welcome.
