The Sprints, the Sprints! :D

Did I read "by the end of 2016" correctly?

Maybe the Headlights will actually throw out some light this time?

The lamps may appear different when lit but they're obviously the same as today.

Another year, another facelift. Are Alfa trying to outdo the Grande Punto for most years left staggering on in production? I take it no fire breathing 300bhp+ QV or GTA to live up to the badge?

You did! I thought the same!

A UK dealership mentioned on here recently that the facelift should be available in the next couple of months, so all hope is not lost :) I can't see the point in releasing what looks to be a minor facelift any later than the second quarter of 2016 - the Giulietta is due full replacement in mid-2017, based on the lifecycles that most proper car manufacturers adhere to!

As you can tell, my patience with Fiat Group & lack of ability to keep all their plates spinning is beginning to wear thin with me! :(

The Giulietta may be due for full replacement in mid 2017 in theory but in practice there is nothing going on to support that.

I would imagine that with the Giulia launch later this year there will be increased interest in Alfa and having something to extend that interest either in time (June to December) or in price accessibility is going to help sales.

I would imagine that with the 4C launch in 2013 there was increased interest in Alfa and having something to extend that interest either in time or in price accessibility would help sales :D.

So, overweight and over cost ? Sounds familiar. Anyway ,you'd better tell Alfa so they can get started!

And they need to sort the dealer quality and network out first

This is not going to happen, the quality - maybe, the network - not with this numer of cars to be sold. Look at Maserati. The nearest dealer from my town is in... Berlin. It's almost 300 km and in another country...
