Giulietta 2013

Hmmm Introduction from Vicky

Well well.... never thought I would join a forum, but then I really didn't know I would own an Alfa.... until I had a test drive 3 weeks ago. I bought a midnight blue Giulietta 1.4 and once I had been encouraged to try the dynamic mode.... I was hooked. Quite a jump from a Mazda 3, which was a lovely car, and carried all my ebay wins very easily. I probably won't be doing so much on ebay now. Giulietta is just so pretty, I would die if I scraped any part of her with something as silly as a small cabinet or an antique chair...
I live in Sydney Australia, originally from England, but have lived here for most of my life. No longer working, I care for my husband who suffered a stroke a few years ago. He did not accompany me for my test drive, but I knew he would love Giulietta, even though he can no longer drive. We both love the shape and build quality, and I really love the super comfy and supportive drivers seat, with the lumbar support. Still just listening to the radio at the moment, very good reproduction... I have not seen many Giulietta's in Sydney as yet, but I am sure they will do well. I was extremely lucky to jump in on an end of year run out and can justify the cost of this little beauty.

Giulietta 2013

Thanks for your response sunseeker25. I decided to have the special paint protection and extra warranty package when I bought her. I was told by the dealer that Virgin Airlines use the same paint protection on their jets.... and have had friends ask me "Vicky... what speeds are you hoping to achieve???" which I thought was classic....
I probably should have chosen the white colour, as our street has many flowering gum trees, so my car has a dusting of blossom, pollen, bat poo, ah yes, and a nice neighbour who is cutting up floor tiles on his balcony all week end, the breeze blowing his tile dust all over her. She is midnight blue, and I can already notice the extra heat when I get in. Air con is wonderful and she cools down very fast. I have nearly finished emptying my garage of all the worthless junk that has been accumulating for years, and hope to have her in there by Wednesday. I have free car washing from my dealer, but they are 20 kms away, and I can get her pretty clean myself in half an hour. I must post some photos of her once she is gleaming again....
