Stelvio Quad Owner in San Diego!
I have been lurking on the Stelvio and Giulia forums for a while now as I've been trying to decide which Alfa was the right Alfa for me. Well, today I finally pulled the trigger and I could not be happier. I am now a proud owner of a new 2018 Stelvio QV in Trofeo White.
The Giulia QV was my dream car but with impending life changes coming soon, I was urged to look at a car with slightly more space. I am happy I did- on the road, the Stelvio drives with more confidence and more presence than the Giulia. I am not a track day fiend by any means, and the added comfort the Stelvio has to me outweighed the very negligible on-road handling deficit. On the road, in real life, at peri-legal speeds, this car still handles better than my father's C7 Corvette and is close to my old Boxster.
Big props to Russell Westbrook Alfa Romeo in Van Nuys, a true no-bullshit dealer who gave me an unbelievable deal on this car- $26k off MSRP, with no hassle and total transparency throughout the entire interaction.
I am excited to join this community and forge into the next part of my life with this enchanting, hilarious and total nut job of a car by my side.
