Good day all

In the process of acquiring this lady yes. First time Alfa buyer, hence registering on this forum,

Haven't seen too much feedback on her, apart from that, took her for a test drive, AMAZING.

Any other owners?

read up about oil specs. make sure you car gets the right stuff. don't trust that the agent knows the difference between engine oil and olive oil. insist on seeing the empty can after service.

enjoy.

I know three owners what do you want to know?

Heres what I can say, some owners get used to the power very quickly...speak to RGM if you want to chabge the map at all if possible.

Please ensure you have the oil chabged with Selenia oil at most every 15000km.

Thats it...the cars are loud AF, quick enough for the evg person and they look great. Id say enjoy it. Welcome to the Alfa fold!!!

Awesome thanks guys. Will provide an update on her in the next month or so. Travelling between Pta and Joburg for a month or 2, so it will be a good test,

Congrats! post a pic. What's the ride like - hard ? Open road consumption?
Picked her up yesterday morning, damn the Dynamic mode is truly insane. Took her to Pta and back and I struggle to go easy. Honestly only started picking up on the awesome build quality as the power of the car is overwhelming. Don't even get me started on the exhausts sounds, crazy!

Drove a Toyota 86 before, suspension def not harder. Firm grip, feel safer in the front wheel drive than the 86's loose ass.

To be fair to the Toyota 86, it was specifically designed to have, in your words, "a loose ass". It's not as if it's a secret - it's a feature.

Absolutely Giorget2. Built for drifting. Drove her for a good 5 years, so much pleasure and goodness. But yes, was time to move on. So far so good!

True, like in old Porches, but not a feature appreciated by someone used to Alfas.
