Picked up new 170qv on friday and took it on 600 mile round trip to wales to visit family, first impressions,
good points-car looks good in black and interior looks classy,
sounds good under hard acceleration
good motorway cruiser
returned 37 mpg mostly motorway and duel carriageway miles but some spirited a/b road blasts, very happy with mpg which should get better as engine loosens up
controls switches feel good to use
bad points- seats are not as suportive as they look,
DNA RUBBISH RUBBISH RUBBISH, why,why oh why do they bother and why does it reset to useless Normal mode.
All in all very happy with the car

Well done I've had mine since 30th December and haven't gone through 200 miles, in that time I've had a check engine warning and a faulty spark plug bore seal replaced (all four as a precaution) glad your enjoying it.

If i remember correctly the full power of the car is not available until after 1000 miles, so your "hard acceleration" should get even harder :p

Have you got leather?
no just the standard, my partner whos car it is seems happy enough with the seats, guess i,m jusrt spoiled by the adjustable bolsters in my 123d coupe m sport, the alfa seats look ok but not enough lateral support and £2000 for the sabelt option was to much in my opinion
