Well I have joined the family!!! Mission Blue...Loaded!!!
I would recommend Tysons Corner. That's where we purchased. David Grimm is the GM and was great to work with. They had a couple QB on the lot.To the DMV QV owners, I am looking to join the club. I've driven the M4 and liked it rather more than I thought I would and I'll be driving the C63 this week. I am having a challenge getting a local dealer to allow even a brief test drive. Have any of you had this same challenge and which of the local dealerships do you prefer to work with? Thanks and I hope to land the right QV in the near future.

@Cupshot I am sure can help you out as well. He works for Criswell in gaithersburg and they are amazing.Timkopp,
Thanks. I visited them early on and despite leaving my contact info multiple times over a couple of additional visits and expressing a desire to purchase something I never heard back from them. I'll try stopping by this weekend and see if I get a better reception. Thanks.
Sounds good to me! Let me see when is the best day for me! Ill see if I can send you a PM instead.Kanundrum,
I tried to send you a PM, but i guess i haven't posted enough to do that yet. Below is the message I was attempting to send:
I was reading an thread in the Mid-Atlantic forum and noticed you're located in/near Silver Spring. I'm in DC just south of Silver Spring off of 16th Street. If you have any free time in the near future, I'd love to meet up anywhere convenient to you and get a short ride in your QV if possible? Thanks for the consideration.
Peakster, thanks for the info. I was already working with Karifa at Criswell, and had driven a Ti with him there. I was finally able to get a test drive at Dulles and they were great but they didn't have a car on the lot I would have purchased, and they did not know what they would be getting for MY 18. I would highly recommend a serious buyer to Dulles based on my experience. I did not have a great experience with Tysons, but I think they were overwhelmed with the addition of Alfa to the small space they have. Criswell has an 18 on order that fits my needs, so I will move forward with them. I am looking forward to being a member of the community finally.James Tan at Criswell emailed me multiple times about cars he had on the lot and basically begged me to come for a test drive (Ti, maybe it's different for QV). He seems to be a good salesman.
Dulles and Tysons were fine with letting me drive cars but seemed to not care if I bought one. No follow up, no effort. I found one with the options and colors I wanted in Florida and bought that one. I can't recommend that dealership enough. No hassles. Alfa Maserati of St. Pete.
