Did you drive it? How far and to where?
Did you wash and wax it?
Did (GOD forbid) park it in the garage and ignore it?
Did you do service work or some modification?

Me? What I did to my 4C today was to be active on this forum and live vicariously through others while dreams of the day (year?) I can order my 4C filled my head and clouded my vision.

I took my 4C out of its box, stared at it for about an hour, imagined myself driving it and then dusted it off and put it back in the cupboard along with my congratulatory letter, where it is safe!

Still dreaming and waiting! :)

I did pretty much what Prince did.. Looked at my model car with my name and surname and chosen number on it. Then read the letters sent to us by Alfa. Then put my 4C scale model back where it belongs. In my safe..

Racer my 4C will be parked in my garage most of the time... It will not be my daily. It will be a weekend hooning around toy. But it will not be ignored. Will still go into my garage every day to look at it.. :)

As your today is yesterday now I will start with that;)
Yesterday I cruised around in my visiting friends to show off my car and turning them green from jealousy :p I did about 300 km of relatively easy driving.
Today I started the day with driving my girlfriend to work with the 4C:heart: after that I decided to give her GTV a bit of attention by giving it a good wash down so she does not start to feel neglected. Then I put them side by side to take a few pictures. There's 11 years of age between the two cars and two decades of development. But the GTV is still going strong and looking smart.
And its a perfect spot for the 4C to hide behind;)

Willem. Looks great, and just like the pictures I hope to post before year end.

I have silver GTV (slightly older, very few miles, rear spoiler, pepperpot alloys, red leather) and I'm waiting for my Alfa Rosso 4c (sport and luxury packs).

Someday I will pst this picture from my driveway (sigh). :)

Enjoy it.

Hi MalxB Then I think we had exactly the same car before we bought this GTV we had a silver 2L twinspark with red leather seats and pepperpots:) (but no rear spoiler). Our current GTV was the first ever car that we bought new it also has red leather seats and the beautiful 3.2L V6 engine at first, we thought we would sell it when the 4C would arrive but we now have decided to keep it next to the 4C it has covered 178K and is still going strong.

Never sell the Busso engine Willem..

Those engines look stunning, sounds great and is strong as hell.. My GTA with the same 3.2l V6 has 166k km on it and still pulls like a train.. Dyno says it makes almost 195kw :D

So Willem have you driven the car in dynamic yet and planted your foot flat and changed gears to hear the almighty cracks on gear changes?

I had a 3.0 V6, exactly the same color combination. I found it a bit nose heavy though compared to the twin spark I had before it. For a short while I also had a 2.0 V6 turbo that sometimes felt like the best of both worlds, other days like a combination of their downsides... The big Busso remains a masterpiece anyway and the 3.2 version I had i a 164 Q4 where it suited the big beast beautifully. (As long as the overly complicated 4WD system worked according to plan.)

Yes yes yes, I did, after having covered around 350 km in neutral I switched it to dynamic, put the box in manual floored it and pulled the upshfit at 6000 rpm thru all the gears, it is sooo unbelievable addictive. You get kicked in the back so hard and the upshift is fast as lightning.
THANK YOU ALFA.

I made the same decision (to keep the GTV) although I need to check the garage space since Top Gear tells us the 4c is "as wide as a range rover".

PS. My GTV is still only at 7k!! (Long story)

Took her for a spin with the wife over the weekend. First impressions : "this thing is low", "I can almost see underneath the other cars", "careful, that guy is staring so hard he is driving towards us", "can this one go into dynamic too?", "whoaaa" :D

On a backroad, passed three grampa's sitting on a bench, they actually waved :D

Sitting in at morning - driving to work. Sitting in at evening - driving home.
Smiling all the time and make the crowd happy.
