Lusting after a

Suffered same fate as SR earlier this year...went to start it dead......tried to jump start nothing. Took recovery guy 3 attempts with booster to get it started. Drove 30min to stealer, switched off and tried to start...nothing. Good job I went straight to the dealer and didn't assume the alternator would charge it.
To be fair its 110 degrees in Dubai so the themostat and aircon are on almost most of the time, plus I don't think batterys appreciate heat generally. This is the second new battery in two years.
My view is that Alfa could eradicate 90% of the irritations by concentrating on fit and finish. Rattles, loose trim and the like are inexcusable on £30k cars.
