Rubbish! Build and paint quality as well as interior materials is much better than on Alfas. I read it in every motor magazine I pick up with a comparison to German cars!Sat in the car park waiting for kids activities to finish, messed around with seat position adjustments. Discovered these little sliding stops on the seatbelts that allow you to leave the buckle at whatever height you want to find it when reaching for your seatbelt. The passenger side one has a little loop of seatbelt on it to stop it rattling against b pillar but the driver’s one doesn’t as it is always done up and it reduces the bulk. How very clever. Now, it would not surprise me if I had it in every car I owned I just never cared about them enough to discover it.
had Audi sq2 (or 3? - can’t tell them apart) parked alongside me in what seemed like misano blue and also clean and detailed well. Despite it being what looks like the same paint it looks a lot better on Stelvio because all the panels are curving and bulging and present to the light source at different angles so the colour just rolls and changes across the panel and you get gloss popping where as you just see flat surfaces and ridges on an Audi - paint looks quite uniform and no gloss unless you find the exact right angle for the light to bounce. I wonder if this is to save costs or just a design philosophy.
You are clearly deluding yourself
I am too, I cannot fault any of the above on my Veloce, in fact I think all the above is bloody fantastic!
The German car fan who prepared and ceramic coated my car reluctantly agreed that the paint quality, on a year old car, was very good!
