No rattles yet, but it is less than a week old. The interior is a bit different from the previous version. The centre console is now a single piece of silver and the radio is a Blaupunkt CD. I believe the seat is a bit lower than before, but as it's my first GTV ( 7th Alfa) I would know any different. I'm please with the "go" the engine has even at this early stage ( 250 miles). Fingers crossed for a few weeks trouble free motoring , although I did get a 4yr warranty with it.
three years is standard, I haggled another year as part of the deal. The engine is pretty impressive, coming from a 1.8 156 I suppose it would be though ! There seems to be much more torque at lowish RPM than the 2.0 16v I had in a 155 a few years ago.
