I test drove my LE today and loved it. I had a problem when I was going slow from a stop to enter the driveway apron. Any advice on how to do this without too much clutch slippage. By the way, I traded a 2004 996Turbo with 20k miles for this car, even swap. After the test drive i was completely sure i was doing the right thing. Now I have two Alfas.:cool:

Sure, don't go slow!

First, congrats, and photos are a must.

As for the question, it's just a matter of getting used to the feel of the car. I reverse up a slope out of my garage, and you get the idea as to how much throttle to add to keep the clutch engaged without getting up to highway speeds in my driveway.

I'll post picks next week when I get it.:)
Dips and shallow gutters that you need to cross always approach at an angle, not square-on. The same for speed bumps/traffic-calmers. Try all-weather mode too until you get used to the throttle sensitivity when slow-speed manoeuvring. Never turn the steering wheel while stationary, only when in motion. Nothing unsurprising.
