You only need to learn 1 thing.

Get one.
Lesson over.


Seriously though, this car is like no other, will put a giant smile on your face every time you drive it and force you to be the center of attention any time you stop the car and are around people.

They have proven to be extremely reliable and even with the bolt tightening procedure, inexpensive to own, especially for a car of this caliber.

Hope to see you join out cult, errrr group.

Welcome!

Should I say congratulations yet, or wait???

What RYUK said is exactly right.

But donít confuse the car for a comfortable cruiser. Itís a raw, driverís car, and it puts the ďsportĒ back in the genre.

Lots to read here, but if you canít find the answers you are looking for, please ask.

Welcome.

This is one of the friendliest and helpfulest car forums on the Web.

Sounds like you've already decided to buy one...

The 4C is a great weekend, Summer car.

Sealed the deal a couple of hours ago.

Prepared for the owner of our dealership, driven only by him , with the following modifications. (retail values shown including labor):

* Koshi Group Carbon Fiber Appearance Enhancements: front-grille V-frame, front bumper flaps, rear spoiler: $1680

* Suspension Correction Blocks by Alfa Workshop UK: Dramatically improve straight-line stability and cornering grip by introducing increased negative camber and positive caster into the front suspension geometry.$1000

* Rear Control Arms: Stiffer rear control arms and bushings aid in reducing deflection on track and with the increased grip of the wider wheels and tires. $1280

* Custom Intake, Exhaust and High Performance Software: High-flow center-exit exhaust system by Centerline substituted for restrictive dual-exit system. Couples with a Eurocompulsion intake elbow to increase inlet flow also. Optimized with a Eurocompulsion tuned ECU for a total power output of +/- 320 brake-horsepower at the wheels. $5000

* Ohlins Coilover Sport Suspension: Adjustable two-way Ohlins Motorsports shocks from Alfa9 with adjustable remote-reservoir dampers, Spring rates Optimized for spirited road-driving and occasional track usage, whist retaining a very comfortable ride. $7500

* Michelin Pilot Supersport Tires 245/40/18 in front and 285/30/19 in the rear. $1200

* Wheel-widening: Stock 5-hole Alfa alloys widened 1.5" front and back, yielding 18 x 8.5" width front and 19 x 10.5" rear. Wheels were laser-cut, had grooves cut into the halves, and the extra width hasstructural tongues to fit the grooves. Circumferential welding inside and out. Stronger than the originals! $900

* Custom Audio with Sony RSX-1 Hi-Res Music System: Custom high-end audio installation with Sony's RSX-1 system. Amplifier custom-mounted behind passenger airbag, speakers all hidden behind factory grills. High end digital-to-analog converters, hi-res Bluetooth audio. 45 hours labor to install. $4500

* Complete Ceramic Coat: 5-coats of hand-applied ceramic coating - a 4 day process. $2200

A total of over $25000 has been added to this stunning, 2200-mile 4C Spider. With an original MSRP
