Re: Hi all .I am new

The rattle might be as a result of a faulty weld over the hatch opening (see other threads)...the clunk sounds more serious - How old is the car?...

Welcome, What do you think of your 3.2 GT - other than the clunk ?

Re: Hi all .I am new

The GT is only one week old and my dealer is shrugging his shoulders but otherwise the car is awesome considering I made a downward move in power(had a C32 AMG with 260KW)

Re: Hi all .I am new

The car is awesome looking but the clunking noise is very irritating.I miss the power I had with C32 AMG but the GT's drive is awesome and much more thrilling. I wish I could get an extra 20 or so KW out of the GT.

Re: Hi all .I am new

Hello and Welcome.

Did you come right with your Problem.
If not get hold of George or Tony at Italsud, I use them all the time.
Two Italian brothers in Town, in Short Market, next to the VW agency.
Very good on all Alfa's. Half the time they finish your explanation for you when describing the problem. Have a lot of Experience.
I see you are in the Milnerton Area, so they aren't far away.
Maybe you can park the GT next to one of the Lamboghini's or Porsches that are in on the day.
Pricing is reasonable, and they keep a lot of their own spares. Electronic testing and resetting is usually refered to Viglietti, which you know are the Ferrari and Maseratti agents.

He who the Son sets free is free indeed.

Welcome...

A remap and a decent airfilter should get you what you need - replace the cr*ppy paper filter with a non-oiled foam filter (oiled ones screw up the MAF) and get the engine remapped by one of the guys discussed in many remap threads on here....

You may want to let the car settle in for a while before you do this of course ....
