Hi,
Anyone had problems with the thread used on the leather seats.
The front drivers seat now has foam poking through where 3 inches of the thread has worn away on the lumbar support. Car supplied by AutoLusso, so at 2 years and 4 months is out of warranty. Never had this on previous Alfa's and with under 40K on clock they certainly do not seem "fit for purpose".

Would be interested to know of similar issues and whether Alfa Customer Care have helped?

Thanks

Depends which bank you are with!
Alfa don't want to know, spoke to a trimmer who quoted about a ton to repair. Apparently is a known problem as the thread has to be weak enough to let the airbag blow through.
