3.2 JTS with Qtronic Auto Gearbox.
Does anybody on else on here own a 3.2 JTS Q4 in either 159 or Brera with the Qtronic gearbox?
If so i would be interested to hear your comments.
Speaking from personal experience with mine I have no major complaints other than it doesn't seem to make much difference regardless of what mode the gearbox is in.(TC on/off Sport mode on/off)
Shifting the lever across to the right and shifting up & down manually seems completley pointless because it changes up anyway & doesn't allow the engine to get anywhere near the rev limiter (about 6k RPM) unlike the old Busso v6's.
Had a blast this morning in wet conditions with TC off & sport mode & could not get the any of the wheels to break traction no matter how hard I pushed.
Like I said can't complain about anything other than what a brillaint Q4 system it is but the downside is it just doesn't feel like 260bhp.
I remember my old 164 24V QV(which was carved up by TG and turned into limo btw) felt so much faster with only 230bhp.
My point is that it just does not excite in the same way as Alfa's ive had in the past.
I have no regrets about opting for an auto/semi auto because my personal opinion its the way forward in terms of technology but feel mine could maybe do with some ECU mapping to give more low down torque & maybe relelase some more horses that have been starved among all the restrictons without going silly.
A supercharger conversion at £7k offered by aftermarket tuners is completley out of the question & a ridiculous price imo.
Has anyone (if any) had re-mapping done on the 3.2 JTS with the qtronic G/box?
If so would like to hear from you.
