the thread seems quite quiet on 4C's at the moment but i am contemplating a 4C (hardtop purchase).
i really want to drill down into the essentials of what i should be looking for. it wont be my daily driver.
options on my list are:
rosso alfa vs. rosso comp'
18' 5 hole in black - love the new spider wheels but not an option i see ?
thoughts on luxury and racing packs..
basically i need some help as i new to the 4c and without a good configurator (spider the same ?) i am struggling..
looking for a low miles car.
I've sold several 4C's to clients over the last 18 months.
Regarding the options you have selected I have my comments below.
Rear Parking Sensors were a no cost option. Make sure the one you buy has these fitted. Its a necessity.
Cruise good shout, I only use it in average speed camera zones.
Rosso Alfa vs Rosso Competizione - Rosso Competizione is stunning in the flesh. Rosso Alfa is also lovely but its a flat red. The reds do chip easily and Rosso Alfa is especially bad. I've seen cars with 2000 miles on and the front end is peppered with chips. I added PPF to the front of my spider to protect it.
The sports exhaust can be a bit droney on the coupe, but it does sound great. Even better on the spider as it doesn't drone.
Regarding the alloys, I have a spare set of silver 4C spider multispoke alloys. Very rare and I've not seen another set of them on the market (Silver or grey).
Regarding the packs, the race pack is fine, and comes with the exhaust, race suspicion and race tyres. The tyres aren't really worth the money but then again I don't like Pirellis full stop. You also get the rear anti roll bar.
I can't remember what the luxury pack consisted of. I think the Carbon Pod front lights and leather seats...
