I feel personally attacked.
1. Tens of thousands of Giulietta’s have our transmission. There will be plenty of parts available for a long time. There’s evidence to suggest it’s a reliable unit, with clutches good for 80,000miles/130,000km of use. Of course it is determined by use/abuse and oil/fluid changes.The reason I'm coming back is:
1- Porsche are boring as hell. NA engine are not enjoyable because the power is up top
2- Maintenance and parts are expensive compared to the 4C
3- They are complex cars. The 4C is super simple to work on
4- Just does not feel special
5- Pain in the butt to work on. I have to change my sparkplugs on my Cayman and it's an absolute pain to access them
However, the main thing with the 4C is:
1. Transmission is not proven compare to the PDK. I have no idea if the 4C transmission is going to be serviceable in the future.
2. Not practical
3. Lack of comfort

2. Get a cheap shopping car
3. I’ve done 700km days. It’s comfortable enough. If the drone is the issue
wear ear plugs or change the exhaust. Try harder.
Nice to see you coming back.👍
I was wondering when you'd be snooping around this thread. Its here waiting for you....like bait on a hook.For those that don't know, I sold my 4C in July 2022.
Alfa Romeo owners -- and I have seen this in person -- react in utter disgust when you tell them you've sold your 4C.
There are some others here who sold their 4Cs and are hiding from the mob, because they fear they'll be dragged through the streets. COME OUT, YOU COWARDS!
Do I regret it? No. I am semi-confident I will be back, but I don't plan things, so let the chips fall where they may (it's my modus operandi with the universe: don't plan and all shall come to me.)
I needed the $ to fatten up my financial standing to launch my own business, and it was the best thing I ever did.
I pressed pause on my 4C journey, but intend to grab a spider at some point, or not. Remember, no plans.
Y'all stop doing dumb shit to your cars, and stop asking dumb questions that indicate you're probably doing dumb shit, or there won't be any moron-free 4Cs left. It's a small number of cars that are being ruined.
JUST SAY YOU MISS US NEXT TIME!
He knows he’ll be back. The only question he has to answer himself is when. Seize the day Philster.I was wondering when you'd be snooping around this thread. Its here waiting for you....like bait on a hook.
Good luck with the search.Have you put in an order for the carbon roof from epoxid?The Cayman is SOLD. Now shopping for a Spider. I enjoyed the Spider more than the Coupe I had. I'm still salivating for a Gulia QV tho.
That's why I bought a well sorted car, patience rewarded....I HOPE!!!No regrets, no crawling back. My 2017 4C was a good car but I like my pre-74 Porsche 911s better. Simpler analog experience and no nanny controls. My 1970 lb. 2.5 ltr. Is as fast as I will ever want to go and I find the handling more predictable than the 4C.
Buy a Stelvio Quad. Truly a demented piece of machinery..Makes the german stuff seem trivial.I'll be honest -- I've been thinking about moving from the 4C to a Stelvio QV for a do-it-all vehicle, but I didn't realize the increase in maintenance cost.
The 4C is so cheap and simple to run.
g wagon...really, such a german box....its a look at me , I own a dinosaur type of vehicle...a german hummer . Obviously your desires are NOT top shelf....more like bimbetteIn the USA, if you want a panty-dropping vehicle, you want a G-Wagon, or a top-of-the-line Ford F250, or similar Dodge Ram or similar Chevy Silverado. Porsche Cayenne, like a GTS in a modest color, is probably good, as is a Chevy Tahoe, in a premium trim. Put a tow hook on it, but because you have shit to tow. If you're not enjoying generational wealth yet, just have a nice truck, with hobbies that require it.
The sports car stays in the garage. Under a cover. You don't even mention it. That's for later.
A skank will drop their panties for a shiny little car. Anyone can get those panties to drop.
