Congratulations Steve, you will have your car way before me. How confident is the dealer that you will have your car in June? I thought 15 weeks was about the time quoted for a factory order.

Well they’ve quoted mid-June on the order but we’ll see when it gets a build date :-)

Thinking of a new Giulia QF. Currently have an M2 / Boxster / V90. A bit of shuffling involved to get the Alfa.

What level of new car discount in the norm or to be expected? Sensible spec, i.e. not with carbon seats / brakes or Akra exhaust. Prob just convenience pack, trim things and convenience pack. The only silliness could be Montreal Green!

Any tips would be appreciated. (not done a Carwow yet either).

Beyond manufacturer deals on finance, visible on the website; you should look into the FCA Affinity scheme. It's asurprisingly wide definition of eligibility e.g. it includes pretty much all public sector. No affiliation to Beechdale, but their page came up in search:

Hit a dealer at the right time of the quarter and they might engineer a way for you to get it even if not eligible. Of course I have no personal experience of this....

Nice that's a much better price the problem is the 5.9 finance rate. I've seen an offer for the new M3 for £700 deposit and just over £700 a month with the same deposit that would be over £100 a month cheaper than the Alpha I'd imagine at 2.9%.

If you can put up with the grille I guess... smile

Finance rates change often and looks like the standard PCP for a Giula Quad is currently 3.9%. Some of the info on the Beechdale page is definitely outdated (e.g. it talks about offers available until Sep 2020). Also I don't think Affinity requires you to take FCA finance. Best just to chat to a dealer!

The grill is growing on me actually and the interior and tech is night and day compared with the Alpha. All things considered the Alpha is still the one for me but I wouldn’t be willing to pay many £££££’s more for one. I’m going to speak to my dealer today see what they can come up with

Yep, from what I remember you may get a decent discount, but probably not a preferential or current / promotional APR ... Which at times can almost negate the discount.

I've just pulled the trigger on one of the new Beechdale stock cars. Great deal and pretty much the spec I would have gone for with a factory order. Still to decide whether I go the PCP route or cash+personal loan. The PCP rates are a bit toppy but I quite like the idea of a GFV in these uncertain times, especially as we head towards petrol being marginalised. I also look at the VED rates (or equivalent) that are coming in across Europe and fear that performance car values here may be hit if we follow suit.

The GFVs on these are set stupidly low, like £23k after 4 years / 40k miles.

Try and find a 4 year old one with that mileage for under £40k!

It's bizarre and makes them stupidly expensive on PCP even though they've been around long enough for Alfa to know what the actual value will be.

Can I be cheeky and ask roughly how much you managed to get off list price?

Most are now sold but you can get the idea here:
https://www.beechdale.co.uk/alfa-romeo/alfa-romeo-...

The Vesuvio Grey one is reduced from £72k to £59k. Looks like there's an additional £1,500 discount too if you are existing Alfa owner.

Yes, that's a similar discount to the one I received.

Was looking at this. They seem to offer better deals than pretty much any other dealer out there currently. Shame they ran out of competizione red cars it seems..

Still worth ringing them as sometimes they can "nick" stock cars off other dealers. They did this for me in August last year.

Grill aside, be careful what you wish for on the tech. I’ve a 2019 Porsche, the ‘tech’ is mind blowing when at standstill showing your mates, once on the move it’s simply awful. Even trying to change the song on a touch screen can end up with bizarre results. The latest is not always the best.
