  1. Australian giulietta 2017 Nav update

    Alfa Giulietta
    Does anyone in Australia have any idea when the Nav system is due to be updated? It was way out of date from the day we bought it. It can't find any freeway extensions or suburbs in Perth built in the last four years or so. I've contacted both the dealer and about 12 months ago I contacted Alfa...

  5. Hi from australian, just bought an old Alfa

    Introduce Yourself
    Glad to join you
  6. I drove around Albert Park (where Australian F1 is held)

    South Africa
    I think the 4C will be mighty around that track.. nice swooping bends! Speed limit around there currently is 70kmh :cry: Drove around it in a G7 SW (with 7 speed DSG). Which by the way is a far better gearbox than the TCT in the 4C :cheese:

  8. More Delays for 4c - Australian market

    4C & 4C Spider

  10. Some info for Australian Customers

    4C & 4C Spider
    Hi all. I contacted my dealer today to ask about the 4c. He told me that currently we are looking at third quarter 14 for release with build dates starting march meaning pricing, specs, colour etc in Feb. So if I go ahead with it, it means I waited 16 months for mine.

    Alfa Giulietta
