New Stelvio Owner

I am so pleased with my new Stelvio, I have owned BMW’s for years and was unsure of making a change, but am glad I ventured out of my comfort zone. I’ve had it for 2 weeks now and I am loving it!

Welcome @cchayes21 . I also left the BMW world for ARs. Very glad I did!

cchayes21, welcome and glad to hear you are enjoying your new Stelvio. I had a history with Ford, Toyota, Saab and Mazda so going Italian was a big step out of the square box for me but I'm so glad I did. I had reached a point where I was bored and tired of driving but no more. Over 12k trouble free miles now and I still look forward to driving my Stelvio every day because it is so much fun.

Gator1, I see you're from Boston. I'm from the Worcester area and miss that lobsta!

Yes indeed, I know what you mean, @JimW . We have been to the Hannover theater in Worcester several times. I have been in the Boston area for ~10 years. Great place to be - except for the long winters. However, never too cold or hot to play with the Stelvio!

Welcome to the herd - Great start. Pushing 30K miles here - total satisfaction. Everything I love without the fluff or contrived egobranding of 'others'. Enjoy + we will appreciate your comments and experiences!

Benvenuto.. Have you noticed the looks you get around town yet? 1) is the what kind of SUV is that look?? 2) the smile and thumbs up from other Luxury SUV owners.

Congratulation on your New Ride. I almost made up my mind to buy BMW X3 before I took a test drive of the Stelvio. I was blown away by the ride. Thank God I did not make a decision to get X3. Nothing that its bad, but this is so much better. Got 1100 miles in first month. Loving it.

I saw Scalewoodman's response and got me thinking...

Who has the most mileage on their TI and experience....he is at 30K.. I am at 21K.

At 31k (assume @Scalewoodman is there by now), and spoke to the lead Tech, Sandy, at Greensboro ALFA, yesterday). A fellow Greensboroian in his Giulia just hit 50k. You just can't get enough of driving in an ALFA.

It's cool to see how new ALFA owners appreciate THE DRIVING MACHINE; it just puts a smile on your face, doesn't it! Happy motoring @cchayes21 , and all other ALFA owners in the UNIVERSE.
