Yep Palmers in Hemel are the dealers, well spotted. I live in Bucks, so not too far away.

Giulia QV, 4C

The red central and handbrake come with the red leather seat or it is an option? I have never seen such combination before.

The red console is an option that comes with red door pulls and a red insert in the lower part of the steering wheel.

Yes, got it last Monday. The weather has turned for the worse here, so not many miles on the clock yet! It's quite an amazing car (rocket ship) and nothing like any other car on the market.

Why did Alfa build a car like this?! All those reviews comparing it to a Cayman need their heads examining. Whilst I love it, I guess it's not going to be for the faint hearted or those expecting a modern day creature comfort means of transport. A Porsche is a limo in comparison. The unassisted steering is awesome and noise ear busting. I haven't opened up the throttle just yet, but even a slight 'tickle' of the right foot propels it forward with extreme gusto.

There are now 13 (out of perhaps no more than 100 delivered) secondhand 4C's on the UK market - all over list, but not selling from what I can see. Are these sellers speculators or those finding it a bit too raw? Either way, I predict a relatively early demise in the production run. Alfa as a main stream car builder were very brave to put this car into production in the form it is. A true Classic of the future. I'm keeping mine!

Glad to hear your enjoying it, I've only had a short drive in one courtesy of my dealer. In any case anyone that put down a deposit expecting a refined cruiser should have known better. My opinion is most of the cars listed were bought by traders, so personally as someone waiting patiently for another 8-10 months, I'm glad they are not selling. This car Used 2014 ALFA ROMEO 4C 1.75 TBi Launch Edition 2dr TCT No. 134/500 units for sale in Surrey | Pistonheads was originally with a trader in Edinburgh as I enquired about it. The owner was selling due to not being able to sit correctly in it (pictures have some wierd seat cushions in there)

Glad to see another UK recipient!

Did anyone order the Parrott hifi upgrade with theirs? I'm pretty disappointed with it. Glad it wasn't a megabucks extra but wish now I had spent the money elsewhere on the car.
