    So here's my personal experience of buying a brand new Giulia Veloce from a main dealer and the subsequent 12 months. Now until the Alfa I had never owned a brand new car, 18 month old cars are the newest I had got. My previous mix of cars had included everything from a basic Ford Focus to a...

  9. Battery 159 - Parking/Storage for 3 months

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Due to overseas business travel on a project, I won't be driving my 159 3.2V6 for about 10 weeks. I've recently replaced the battery but I'm guessing that it won't last that long without being started, and I don't have an easy way to get anyone during that time to do that for me. What is the...

    Alfa Giulia
    I am on a 2 year PCP and already find myself thinking about my next car. Is it usual to get a good offer at the end of a PCP to keep you with the brand? Will there be anything else in the range in just over a years time?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Well, I placed an order for a Misano Blue Giulia Veloce yesterday and so in 3 months time I'll be moving forums! VERY excited, especially as I have been able to jump ship from my 4 year PCP deal after 2 years in order to achieve it. Don't get me wrong, I adore my GQV but the Giuia Veloce is an...
