Hello everyone, I just got my 4C last Friday!
2016 with only 10k miles. Red interior with carbon fiber option. Racing exhaust (Not Akra) and front PPF from the factory.

I bought it from Glenview Luxury Imports in IL and the whole process was seamless. Now I'm just waiting on them to send me the title, so I can register the car.
I'm also working with them to get an extended warranty on this just for peace of mind.

I also have a Giulia QV and the difference is shocking. Don't get me wrong, Giulia QV is an exciting car to drive, but 4C is definitely more raw and fun. It will definitely take some time to get used to no power steering, but I already put 400 miles in 3 days lol. Very hard not to drive.

I took the 4C to a local car meet this past Sunday and received a lot of attention! It is a beautiful car.

Nice!! Love me some white 4Cs with red interior! A killer combo. That's what I wanted, but ended up with tobacco instead. You already know how amazing this car is. You put it very well yourself: "Very hard not to drive". Enjoy!

Congratulations on your Spider @NOVA_Steve and welcome to the forums.
You have a couple of lovely Alfas there.
The Spider will take a bit of getting used to after the comfort of the other one. Have fun taking the long way home on the twisty roads.
Cheers,
Alf.

That is awesome! I've been driving it here and there everyday since I got the car lol. If you are headed to Summit often, you've probably met Sapan. He has a red QV and goes there a lot. Anyway, our Alfa group is going to Cars & Cigars in Leesburg this Saturday. We are doing at pre-meet in Sterling at noon and cruise down together. It would be awesome if you can join us. Hope to meet you soon.

welcome to the community @NOVA_Steve!

I also have both a 4C and QV (also in RC). I love them both and wouldn鈥檛 give either up. Two totally different, yet engaging, drives.

congrats on TWO great cars. I would watch the PPF if it indeed is the factory version. On a white car it tends to yellow after some time. Unfortunatelly this is most visible on a white car. All 4Cs have factory PPF on the lower sills/rocker panels. if you have additional PPF on your car it most likely is better quality such as Xpel or Suntech that was installed after the initial purchase that won't yellow. On my Rosso Red car I had additional Suntech Ultra installed before driving it at all. It covered everything from the windscreen forward and front fenders. That was in March 2016 and it still looks great.

I don't remember seeing any factory PPF on my lower sills or rocker panels. Do I need to look again or, perhaps, it was removed by previous owner?

It should cover the lower sills and than rise a bit behind the front wheel well and forward of the rear wheel well. I would be surprised if it didn't come on your car if a North American car. I assumed that all of them had it....maybe others can check their car to see if I am mistaken although I never make a mistake. I once thought I did but I was wrong ;-)
