As some of you know I have been looking to get back to driving alfas after a long time away from them, been in a dilemma about a GQV and a late plate 159 ti tbi anyway after looking at a few , I have been to dealer today and put down a deposit for a GQV 2011 11 plate in white 29k on clock full alfa history getting a service (alfa) and a years warranty (alfa) only fault I noticed so far was the near side rear indicator lens had condensation in it they are going to sort though, got it for a great price as well, drove well and it is quick no question, very torquey as a lot of people said its doesn't like to rev high but it does move along effortlessly!!!! Surge is Almost like a remapped diesel!
Dynamic mode makes a huge difference as you all know!
Dealer is putting my private plate on so I won't get it for a good few weeks but that's fine
,very pleased !!
Thanks for all advice!!

Try waiting 15 weeks as I ordered mine on the last week of June and did not get it until last week in October.

Congrats mate you will have no regrets thumbs: :thumbs:

Ha! Was that because of your plate??
Don't mind as long as the car is right
long story but there was a mix up with the dealership the previous owner sold it to as they wanted to keep the private plate which was on the car so it needed to be re-registered, between the previous owner and the dealership they sold it to they sent the wrong part of the V5 off and the dealership i bought it from had already got the car from the other dealership (confusing isn't it :lol:) so they had a car in their showroom for age while they tried to sort it out for me and in the end let me take the car and started the whole process again. i looked at it in september last year, picked it up in october and the plate and everything was sorted out on saturday just gone. now mine has just got a standard plate on it :)
