          the car has a good presence in real life (in my opinion)..You can love or not her, but at the end has her own distinct personality

              Fiat and Alfa just don't realize their full potential. If their cars were more reliable, their dealers more accessible (here in the U.S.) and they put up the proper investment into the operations and cars they would sell like hotcakes. An Italian car kills it on style/looks/character vs 95% of German cars yet they're held back their own problems. The only Afla dealer in Dallas is nothing more than used car center that just sells Aflas and Fiats on the side. High-end used cars from every other brand you can think of, are what they have out front. Huge mistake and turn off. Where are the start of the art facilities/dealerships? Alfa would sell much better if they backed the product. Maserati got it easy because they're piggybacked in most cases with Ferrari and other high end brands. No new facilities needed. Fiat/Alfa need to be marketed and sold together in NEW dealerships and FCA needs to give them the product to sell, the proper product.

                Your last sentence should've gone at the beginning of this paragraph. Dealers make a lot of money off used car sales, and in cases where they're starved for product that moves in decent numbers they depend on it.

                Since we're in a less than ideal situation now, this setup will just have to correct itself over time as Alfa builds its lineup.

                Oh I agree, Mitsubishi dealers are the same way. Lots of used cars from other makes because they have very little new product to sell.

                The problem with Alfa/Fiat is that the facilities themselves suck, at least around here. They need new buildings/facilities.

                    It's an Alfa... I don't expect it before Geneva 2019, at the soonest. :D

                    No. And there is no plan to release Coupe version of Giulia although there are plans to release Coupe. Now think which model will be competitor if in Alfa's line-up it will succeed 4C.

                    Also I don't know why certain media are making Alfa's plans by themselves. Obviously they have no "inside" information. It was funny to read from German media that Alfa will have 1.4 MultiAir, 1.75 TBi, 2.0 JTD and Maserati V6 engines. And nothing of that was true.
