Not a great start to the year but hopefully there might be a bump in the next couple of months for anyone who placed factory orders after the Alfa Test Drive events

Giulia QV

Road tax jumping from E to F not good for 2019 Giulia QV cars or did Alfa screw up on the CO2
Fuel consumption figures seem to have improved at the expense of CO2!

The vast majority, if not all of the engines in the Stelvio, Giulia & Giulietta have moved to a higher tax band. Some have been replaced & some have been removed due to the EU 6.2 emissions targets.

Oh wow... that's not good news. Will this also affect the VRT for UK imports? I'll likely be changing cars towards the end of this year. I was considering importing a Giulia Veloce, but if this pushes up the VRT, it would put me right off. Higher motor tax also means a Giulia would be more difficult to sell on in the future.

Same for the petrol 1.4TB 120hp in the Giulietta, now the only petrol engine available, a shame to see the MultiAir no longer available.

Yip... I wouldn't lose sleep personally over the extra 180/yr... but it would make it harder to sell down the line.

Giulia QV

OK none of this was making sense in seeing that the same cars have suddenly higher CO2 emissions thus pushing them on to the next tax band so did some googling!

It seems the test for CO2 has changed recently from an NEDC procedure to an WLTP (Worldwide harmonised Light-duty vehicle Test Cycles) test protocol which is more aggressive to suit modern driving.

This new WLTP test applies to new passenger car models from 1 September 2017, to all passenger cars registered from 1 September 2018 and is mandatory for all EU Member States.

New cars will have both test results until about 2021 when all results will then be just using the WLTP test results. Hopefully cars registered before Sept 2018 continue to dodge this increase!

If I ever get my hands on a QV then I think it is settled that it will be on a pre 2019 model then. That top tax rate is just sickening.

Edit: seems it's actually the second highest tax rate. I could probably stomach that as it's the same as my V6. Still though....

Ugh and only by 2g of co2! Surely they could get that down with a slight power decrease. These changes to regulations never work in the petrol heads favour, do they?

Oh dear. One step forward, ten steps back. I have just been in with my dealer in Castleblaney, Monaghan, where we bought a Giulia 2 years ago. Time for a change I said. No can do Dermot said. FCA Ireland have pulled the plug on all dealers who have not bought into their new. probably written on a cigarette packet, plan. And Paul Hunt, the much lauded recruit from VAG Ireland, is heading out the door on Friday. So, in effect I cannot get Giulia serviced, or warranty work done, or change it for a new 191 Giulia as per our plan. Unless I drive for 3 hours to a Dublin dealer. And 3 hours back. Assuming of course, that I can find a dealer who is still on the inside. After spending 50k and about to do the same again. Nobody knows who is replacing Hunt, but probably some new company yes man who will immediately order some vastly expensive new signs and balloons to fill up the empty showrooms. What on earth is going on here ? SAAB went bang from a lack of investment and operating cash. This company is largely profitable, the product is now very good, so the blame can, and should, fall fairly and squarely with the management, the actual humans who are being paid vast salary's while running the company into the ground. From what I can gather, the current impasse is in regard to FCA failing to offer the dealers decent assistance to implement the plan, which involves, as usual, having to spend copious amounts of money so that I can get my car serviced in an architecturally designed cathedral while sipping a latte. But in the meantime, I can't get it serviced at all. Basil Faulty would do less damage to a business.

<--- That about covers the situation :NUTTER: :HEADBANG:

It was only last week I checked the Dealer Locator before starting this thread to see if anything had changed since last year, McGuigan Motors were still listed then. Usually when a company loses or choses to no longer be an Authorised Dealer they keep on as an Authorised Aftersales &/or Service Agent for at least a couple of years for their existing customers in the area !

Under normal circumstances David, that would be the procedure, but my understanding is that this is a standoff. Dealers won't play ball so they lock them out. And the customer can go and jump. I was told a year ago by a service dealer on the southside of Dublin that FCA wanted 60k per annum to continue as a service dealer. Would you be bothered ?

Madness ! Alfa Ireland should be doing everything possible to keep an Dealer willing to have any association with the brand, be that as a dealer or a service agent.
How do they expect to grow the brand with an even smaller network than they already have, & who would sign up to take on the brand with the current minimal market share, chicken & egg scenario.

Dan Seaman & Waterford Motor Village are also still listed, you need to put in a location further down the country for them to show up
It was a better system before where it listed all Dealers, instead of the current system where you are now required to put in your location & the nearest are shown.

Ah, that's unbelievable. Bunch of muppets. Hopefully it's just a bit of posturing & then common sense will prevail.

Some of the posters on this thread would have a field day with this news!

Dealers have to be willing to invest too though to show they are serious about selling cars. I've said it before and I don't like to pick on them but Dan Seaman's is a joke of a garage for a brand like Alfa Romeo. I went in there on Saturday and there was not a single Giulia, Giulietta or Mito on the car lot. Just one Giulia in the showroom. They have loads of them on their Carzone page but none there visible in the flesh. Obviously they just got them in from Alfa Ireland to take photos.

Then you go to Kearys BMW and the place is brimmed with various models including M cars, i3s, new 8 series, etc (all putridly ugly of course but people seem to like them). And the staff are young and enthusiastic. And the showroom is phenomenal. It's bright, it's spotlessly clean and it is really well designed. It's a different league. MSL is not as good but it's still pretty impressive. Same with Lexus. And the customers look well heeled too as that's the environment they like. If you want to attract people who like flashy expensive cars you've to give them what they want.

There was an unused car dealership premises for sale in Little island right in the middle of Mercedes and BMW. Nice big bright glass building with plenty of room for expansion. The fact that Dan Seaman's didn't buy or rent that to me shows they have absolutely no enthusiasm or intention of investing in their business. Their premises is not suitable for any modern dealership. They lost the VW dealership years ago to Blackwater motors because they wouldn't invest. Look at Blackwater motors now compared to Dan Seamans. VW won't let you sell their top end cars unless you invest in your premises.

I wouldn't be impressed with any of the Alfa Dealers as no name second hand car garages, not to mind supposed premium brand retailers. And it's nothing to do with Alfa as a brand. If they are a good car sales company they should be reinvesting anyway. If the Alfas aren't shifting they can always look for another brand. If the current dealers can't or won't do that then they need to find new ones. I'd imagine your Monaghan dealership is much the same?
