I was just having a play on the Alfa configurator. I can see rear audible parking aids but didn’t see an option for a reversing or all round camera. Did I miss it or don’t Alfa offer such parking aids?
It has a reversing camera but no all round camera. Front and rear parking sensors standard AFAIK.

Has anyone seen the offers for the QV on mangoletsi?

They seem to have interesting terms and payment plans v other Alfa dealers. For example, £799 pm with a £1999 deposit, or £69 deposit with monthly payment of £899. I've never seen these kind of terms offered from any other dealer
Wow £69 deposit......sort of tells you something

The real price?

All this 3/6/9 months ‘deposit’ and 5k miles per year for a bold headline low monthly payment nonsense is just cheap furniture store/Ryanair style marketing, always has been.

About time advertising was restricted to quoting the whole price of the agreement at 10k miles a year divided by either 24/36/48 months. No deposit allowed or stupid low mileages to be quoted to skew the headline monthly payments.

How about nil deposit and £849 a month?

You are paying £8k for the privilege though and you better return it with only 20k miles or else!

Nearly a real price, just has the daft 5k per year!
So that adds up to about 40k for 4 years, then give it back. Just over £2/mile!

Appreciate the mangoletsi comments. Not saying I would go for the £69 deposit deals etc and I know they are limited in terms of miles ; I just mentioned that to state that I wish dealers offered different profiles. If you spec one in carwow you will get 8 dealers offering you the same package from FCA/Leasys.

I'm in talks with a dealer about picking one up via the Alfa Affinity scheme; the dealer has quoted me finance through Alphera and I'm trying to see if I can get it financed through another underwriter as alpheras Apr rates are quiet high

Long time lurker, could someone enlighten me as to the affinity scheme, it’s my understanding from a quick google search that myself or my wife would be eligible to participate. How do you go about joining the scheme, what kind of savings are available and what dealers participate in the scheme

Your employer needs to be signed up to the scheme, seems to be most people working in the Fiat Group, Public Sector (e.g. Police/NHS e.t.c) and no doubt others.

I can shed some light on the Affinity scheme. Check the list and see if your employer is eligible etc and email an alpha dealer saying you would like a quote under the affinity scheme. Don't go through carwow as the designated carwow teams will ask you to email the dealership.

You'll get about £10k off on list price. Note that they often use another finance house instead of FCA/Leasys - in my case the underwriters was on 1 quote Alphera and on another Pentagon who quoted aprs around 5.6-6%. consequently this wiped out any savings for me as the car became more expensive over the course of the deal Vs my carwow quotes.

I had a test drive in one of these yesterday and was impressed. I loved the drive, just need to get my head around the hard suspension and the fuel consumption looks heavy.

Can an owner enlighten me as to how the Bluetooth works with Apple CarPlay please. In my current car as soon as I get in the Bluetooth connects and Waze is activated via CarPlay so I have warnings of speed traps etc. Is it the same in the Alfa or do I have to physically connect my iPhone to use CarPlay/Waze?

I’m still to try a BMW 340 and an Jag XE P300.

I said the ride was hard as you’d expect in a sporting car, I think I still have my fillings tho. wink

I read about the fuel consumption on a press car was 22 mpg but I guess they will have been driving it hard.

The Giulia Quadrifoglio has the best ride quality of the M models and the AMG car in my opinion.

Alfa Giulia make a diesel if that mpg puts you off.

It’s the softest ride of any sports saloon I’ve owned which includes 2 x M3, a RS4 and C63. The C63, now that’s hard, and it does 15mpg around the doors. You can’t really compare a Quad with a 340i or a XE, they are poles apart.

It’s a harder ride than my current BMW 540 but that’s not a problem.

Yes the Quad is obviously a different animal than the 340 or XE but I’m considering all 3. Given my requirements the field is fairly small. For example a heated steering wheel is essential for me and as far as I can see not an option on Mercedes, Audi or several others.

Also surprised you find the ride harsh.
To answer the question, yes, you need to plug in the iPhone to get CarPlay.

It's possible he has driven the car in Dynamic mode without pressing the comfort setting on the suspension.

It was indeed in Dynamic mode, I saw the comfort mode button but didn’t use it. It was a short test drive and the salesman didn’t usually sell Alfas so his product knowledge wasn’t great. Perhaps I’ll take another look.

A heated steering wheel is a nice to have, but is that really such an important criteria on a car?.

Pair of nice racing gloves would be cheaper!
