rain was very bad! I had like a 20km stint in it but rained so hard. Feels great, 159 feels like a UNO! suspension is great softer than my car.

yip. Black wheels with the Carbon brakes.

LE has a different design wheel in silver with steel Discs and the normal Rosso Red. RE comes out in White and a tri layer Red. Paint alone according to the dealer is R70k

Have to say I think Maserati is in trouble, this car makes the Ghibli redundant as far as I concerned, the Alfa has a far better interior and at R1,5 mil the best Ghibli you can get is a diesel...

Its a beautiful car in Blue Oceano but I think the Alfa is a better looking car still...at least on paper.

One thing that I think is silly is the fact that the Race Edition comes with the ornate wheels and not the forged units. I would have the forged units any day. Light and tough, even though they don't look like the "cloverleaf" teles.

Stunning car. I just need to see their finance packages. Audi makes it easy to own a Q7 worth a million for around +-R10K per month over 36 months by guaranteeing a R480k buy-back, +-25% deposit and what-not. This would be better than R26K per month for a new Giulia QV. Drive the thing for 36 months and buy another one.

Bud to be honest.. Hahah its quiet hey. In D N and A it sound the same. Switch it to D is exactly like the GQV, just sharpens up throttle but pop it in Race the vakves open... then it sound lekke. Valves on pipe open up. But then the ESP an traction is off witch when its wet and you want to give it some stick, NOT ideal. I think the should have had a exhaust button just for when you want the burble of the exhaust

When you getting yours Perreby? Vulcano black right? Are you going with black and red interior...which seems to be popular with the UK guys.

Trust when i say my Dad was not happy to drive it in the rain for its first trip... Not ideal.

Funny enough.. He said it doesnt "FEEL" like an Alfa... Mmmmm
I think he the exitment levels were higher when he picked up is 156 GTA back in 2003. Same showroom ect. I can actualy remember him giving like a Whohaaa when he took of from the toll gate. Maybe age is playing a factor now hehehe
