So what would you be saying here if this was a Giulia?
Met the guy from up the road at the village shops this morning, I was in the Giulia which he had already seen and admired, he was in a 17 plate Audi RS6 Avant. He had a little moan about it, of rather Audi. When he went to collect it in the showroom, they could not get it to start. On his return visit it started and he drove it away happy (ish). A few days later about to go out for the evening, car would not start, back to Audi, getting a little Peed off now. Car sorted and dinner at a posh restaurant plus other gifts to appease him.
The car has lots of electronic gadgets as you might expect. As he needs some help to learn all the technology a visit to the dealer followed. No one at the dealership could help him with all the tech. Dealership gets Hans over from Germany to train them and instruct (miffed) owner. All goes fine, until, half way through the demo, yep youve guessed it, the engine cuts out and refuses to start. By now my friend is totally Pee'd and rejects the car, but agrees begrudgingly to accept it with more gift and £5,000 worth of upgrades.
17 plate and all that? Will the engine die again? Whos to say.
Anyone had such a bad experience with their dodgy old unreliable Alfa Romeo Giulia?
Someone said to me, "so whats so special about an Alfa Romeo then?" I told him, "If you have to ask, you wont understand".
Giulia Super 2.0MA, wife drives 939 Spider 2.2, plus now a 147 1.6 TS whilst the Spider hibernates and there is a 1972 Spider 2000 S2 in the garage for fun days.
