Still no refund - I chased them this morning with an impatient email (they always reply to those ones!) and they said they will check the status of it. I replied saying I was not happy with the service, it's taken 2 weeks to tell me something isn't in stock and to refund my account and it still isn't complete. Need to ring my bank to see if they can do anything to help. The one time I don't check the history of a trader I get bitten in the ***!
On a positive note, I love my GTV more every day. I was choosing between a 330ci and a GTV the night before I bought it, and the other night I actually had a dream I drove a 330. I woke up all disappointed, but looked out the drive and saw the alfa and all was well again
When I drove my seat, I knew I had paid 6k for it (which is a lot for me, only 22) and I was always frustrated. It was a fast car, pushing 300lb/ft and 280bhp and was a lovely car to drive but I always found myself thinking 'I want it faster, lower, louder' etc. It was a modding money pit, because modding those engines is so cheap and the sky is the limit. With the GTV I get in, hear the busso and it never stresses me out.
The drivers window stopped working on saturday, so I had to lift it up by hand to close it. The revs are erratic at idle sometimes (new maf needed!). The ride is hard, the stereo fasts forwards itself, the dipped beams are awful, the fuel consumption is high, the passenger footwell gets spots of water on when it rains, the passenger door sometimes doesn't seal properly when you close it, I have nightmares about speed bumps, the brakes are deafeningly squeaky too. But I don't care, it's so much fun!
