haha, thank you for your kind advice.

with the Deutsche Papa DNA, maybe it will fall sick in a different manner.

i will be expecting all the Deutsche sickness to follow in 3 years time but the Italian Mama notorious diseases may have been cure significantly.

nevertheless, it is still relatively pricey and i am working on the finance if I am ready to afford her.

[thumbsup] [thumbsup]

You are welcome. I wish her and everyone in the family good health in the coming new year.

I once went for a speed dating with the sister of Guilia, Guilette. I love the way she moans and groans in her GV outfit but somehow I just didn't have the courage to marry her! It could be due to my lack of ability to provide for her esp when she falls sick. My insurance policy would not have coverage for the illness unless it is critical. Oh well....

dun think it is spoil! this is the italian DNA!! :) from ducati to aprilia (front headlight only single eye) and on to my previous Alfa 159 only one light on when reverse! I used to ride in poly and army

you need to own italian vehicles to know their DNA hee hee

Most of the older European cars have one reverse light, the other side is a fog light. Meaning 1 fog light and 1 reverse light at the rear, one on each side.

500 bhp ferrari engine....

 

but it is selling at 300k, and probably need 20k a year for repairs.

 

The TCO considering the super loss made when sell off, is probably equivalent to getting a Porsche Panamera or Cayenne.

don't think 'expensive' is the problem. it's the frequency of repair

My 159 was pretty sturdy for the first 5 years, problems came only after that. The bright side is you will make friends with the mechanic, I have breakfast with Peter from AS everytime I visit his workshop.

Once a tow driver saw my car and he knew where to tow to... AS.

I'm closer to the AS girl. Peter not so. Just exchange greetings. Xiangsi totally not in touch at all but i notice he got his clients too

The admin lady always at level 2? Peters always around so it’s kinda hard not to interact with him

Anyway despite all the experiences, it’s still very tempting to get the giulia but it’s impossoble to get approval from the missus..

Might want to do a quick research on the critical breakdowns of the Giulia on the forums. 

 

Most of it are niggly issues that plague the German brands as well. like squeaks, or some light bulb ...etc.

 

 

If we are talking about things like Selespeed failure, MCSF etc, then its a lot less so. 

 

There will still be the oddball lemon, or Friday Car, cases of major component failure, that's not too different from the Germans, but within its warranty period, get it replaced, fixed and move on.

yes. i hardly see peter as i only go late noons and leave car overnight. 

 

the giulia is much more drivable than the 159. anyone should be ok with it but i can understand price concerns cos its an Alfa.

Oic.. I go in the mornings and collect in the evenings.

I’m just terrified of the resale value. To drive cars like Alfa and jaguar, gotta drive till end of COE lol

The quadrofoglio is a seriously beautiful car, the historic telephone dial rims, the beautiful history of the italian marque and not to forget, the ferrari designed engine.

The entry price point is seriously attractive at slightly under the 400k mark.

Performance wise, on paper and watching youtube reviews, this is a serious performance car, off and on the track.

If opportunity arises that I have extra cash, would get this as a fun car. Would be really really nice.

Well if $$$ is not the consideration, I would luv to own her too.

by the way, any one did a comparison between Giulia and Stinger ?
