Also the steering seems lighter in the V6 ! Does that mean my shocks or bushes are worn although I had an Alfa specialist say they were ok.
Also the V6 didnt seem to pull that strongly I guess it would need a new MAF ?
Hmm, a new MAF requirement would usually if not always show signs of not high revving, so it wouldn't rev past about 5000RPM, was it revving freely? As slow acceleration may be down to something else mate.
I know for a fact that if I'd have jumped from my old Twinny into my new V6 my head would have fallen off at the difference, it really should be in a completely different world.
Suspension wise I find them quite similar to be honest, crashy and sporty, it's possible the bloke hasn't got the correct tyre pressures in, should be about 36PSI in the rear and 38PSI in the front, if he's got it lower in the early 30's then it won't be as crashy as it's meant to be.
Not sure about the steering mate, if it feels okay though then hopefully nothing to worry about????
You seem quite dubious about the car though bud, if it doesn't feel right walk away.
