Why are you guys so impatient in the US? They only have 6 months delay on this car and in reality it hasn't even been presented to the US market!I like the style and performance of the 4C. I think the exposed carbon fiber tub sets the car apart from all the others in its class. I am also a minimalist and like the simplicity of the car. All that and great gas mileage!
Dislikes: the headlights, mirrors, lack of trunk space and the thought of having to pay what my guess is going to be a $10k+ markup over MSRP. In general, i think i am a very patient person, but am also getting pretty frustrated with the continuous delays.
I have driven Alfas for over 30 years and once the 4C becomes available in the US, i will probably splurge and buy my first new one (if one is available for me to buy); however, in the meantime, a neighbor has a 2009 Carrera S that is in new condition with 12k miles that i have been tempted to buy. I hope i can hold out for the 4C, but i am concerned that i will end up waiting another year and will be disappointed when i see it in person or it will end up being priced out of my range, resentful that i wasted what will be 2 years that i could have been driving the Porsche. Such a dilemma!
What should I do?:s
LOLThe end of 2014 will be almost 3 years since I first heard of the 4c. Back then they said it would be available in the Spring of 2013 so it is not just the 6 month US delay. I sold my mint round tail last summer and have been going through Alfa withdrawals ever since.
Ok, i feel a little better now that i have vented my frustrations. Thanks guys!
