  7. Order progress

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi Guys, I’ve searched the forum but can’t find a direct answer. Does the dealer you ordered the car from automatically let you know how your order is progressing or do you have to keep asking?

    My GTV went in for some serious TLC on monday. Although it looked great from 10 feet away it was covered in blemishes, scuffs, dings and the lacquer had crazed in numerous places. There was a little bit of rust to sort out in the rear arches too. I have also treated her to a full set of new...
