Welcome to the club - great colour too - what interior have yo gone for? mines in red and black cloth (2.2 Tecnica) and i think it looks stunning.

am a first time Alfa driver here too and after nearly 30,000 miles i still cant get the big grin off my face and am amazed at how rare they still are on the road, which makes it feel all the more special and exclusive, and how many admiring glances it gets everywhere i go.

you will love it i am sure, and again welcome to the club

Love it thanks. It's white with black leather and a few of the packs including the sound upgrade which is great just needs a few hours to work in.

Took in to the Peak District at weekend and blew a few cobwebs away. Keeping the revs down obviously.

Really annoying rattle from the drivers side front though somewhere. Can't live with that, will need to locate and kill it! Is it a common thing? Odd that it doesnt seem to a "bump" related rattle i.e. happens all the time almost continuously.

Lol - second time I'm posting this in succession and your seems to be the same from the description:
https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa...ak-rattle.html (Giulia Veloce Squeak\Rattle)

Glad you're enjoying it - forget keeping the revs down, it'll be fine! :-)

You sure it's not the passenger seatbelt buckle rattling against the plastic part of the passenger seat? Mine does that but I've put a piece of Velcro (the soft side) on the plastic and now it doesn't rattle.

Very nice, don't bother keeping the revs down or "running in", just drive normally, let it warm up and then go for it!

That's really irritating as mine does that all the time. I've bought some rubber "tape" that I must get round to doing...

The rattle is driving me up the wall now.
I've looked under the bonnet at the loose bit of trim and the wire which runs laterally across the engine bay but I don't think it's that.
Is anyone else suffering the same issue? Low speed only, doesnt seem to be impacted by bumps in the road, more clicking than vibration etc.
