A few questions before I place an order....
About to trade in my Giulietta (my 2nd, with a 159 before that!) for a Veloce but needed some help regarding options/costs before I do...and before someone (cue2) says to use the search facility, I am currently on holiday with limited time and even more limited internet connectivity, so any advice (or links) in this thread would be greatly appreciated.
So my first question is regarding the mixed firmest tyres, as these used to be standard on the Veloce (and are still standard on the QF) and with the obvious benefits of an increased contact area a the rear on a RWD car, this seems essential to me. Anyone agree/disagree?
Secondly, I canít believe that the only way to have rear air vents is to spec the climate pack, do you just have a blank panel without it? A picture of the rear without the climate pack would be really useful. As I will have either my daughter or wife in the back of the car most of the time, vents for the air con again seem essential but any thoughts from those who do or donít have them would be helpful.
And that brings me to my final question. The above are the only 2 options I would spec and bring the total for the car to £40,100. My dealer has advised that this would result in the tax surcharge (should have mentioned Iím UK based) but I thought the £40k limit was the cost of the car inc options but not including the first year of tax. Can anyone advise? Is there something that the dealer has to do when they register the car (ie not include the first year of tax in the cost of the car) to keep it below the limit? Again, any experience of this would be useful to hear.
Apologies for the long post, really appreciate the help this forum provides.
