Nothing wrong with that! Any notable praise especially in a respected magazine is great news.

Our friends at Jalopnik are at it again. In their relentless mission to portray Alfa Romeos as unreliable, they wrote another article about a pre-production Stelvio that "apparently" broke down in LA.
The author practically wet himself he was so excited to tell everyone about it.

Yeah, I saw that but it was so ridiculous I didn't post about it. There's a reason they test these things on the street - to get the bugs out. If it fails, at least they're going to learn from it.
I wonder if the author's editor has ever made any corrections to his articles or if he always gets it right the first time.

I welcome approval from my wife. She doesn't even like the sport seats but loves the car! Now, how to convince her to get a Stelvio QV for herself instead of the RX350 she drives now!

Careful. She might find the improvement jarring.

Giulia Quadrifoglio for DD, Jeep Wrangler for running over fish.
Great DD choice, but please don't feed the snowflakes.

"choose 5 of those over my QV"

depends on what you are doing with it, or how many cars you have at your disposal.

@1750GTV IF I had the kind of "F"-"U" money that it would entail to purchase these cars the what I would do and how many would mean nothing....this is just what would you do with unlimited resources...LOL
so yeah I'd love to have a McLaren....and having been fortunate enough to drive a couple of Lambos as over the top they may look & be...they are an absolute rip to drive:grin2:
I love my QV, fine car may be one of the best I've had..time will tell...
but how could you not like some of those super cars???
and the Bentley would indeed be my CC car:wink2:

As a young man I would have loved to amass a collection. Priorities changed, and now one or two (OK, maybe three) sufficiently special will do. I'm content with the choices I've made.
