Second one? Why??

The diesle was good. It is a smooth drive, I think the only thing that did not grab me was the Auto Gearbox. Being used to a manual it was not as responsive as i like.

I considered the V6 Q4 but then came across the GQV which I was actually always after but pricing was a strong factor previously.

The Giuli has a few rattls (second hand) but will sort them out as i go along.

My first one had a paint issue on the roof, so it was replaced.....
You get used to the Auto box very quickly..... in S mode its a lot more responsive..... but being an older generation auto box the gear changes were relatively slow...

Lovely, as much as it looks awesome it white - there are so many around relative to the other colours.

I'd be interested to see those mags with a gentle/light smoked finish on a black car!

Dont get me started Arthur, Been thinking what to do with the wheels.
Actually after turbine style i have seen on some others but pricey at dealers.
Yea i've heard they are quite a stretch...

Try a photoshop job to see what yours will look like.

I'm not a fan of overly dark wheels. But a shade darker. Almost like they have very heavy brake dust on them if you know what I mean.

Just stick with OEM Alfa mags if you do change to a different pattern :thumbs:
