Hi all, I think I am ready to pull the trigger on a Vesuvio Grey Quadrifoglio. Not sure if I want to go with the light or dark 5 hole wheels. I like the dark, I just don't want them to be 'Black'. I am currently driving a 2011 Audi S5 and it has been a great car, but the girlfriends son and daughter have a **** of a time to getting into the back seat, so I need 4 doors. Well that is what I am using as my excuse for this upgrade :grin2:

I have a Vesuvio Gray QV... I went with the dark. I think that's just the way to go on things such as these. They definitely aren't black. They're gray for sure.

Picked up with Gunmetal 5 hole:




Swapped to Silver Technica Wheels: (I like the contrast Personally)




The good thing, the car looks fantastic either way! Its a nice color that displays the subtle curves well.

Welcome :)

I put dark 5-hole wheels on my blue Ti. It came with bright 10-spoke wheels.



The wheels are not 'black', but sure look black most of the time.

I'd go with Vesuvio Grey, amazing color. I'm also a sucker for the Gunmetal colors. I loved that color on the Volvo S60R's, although mine was black. I'm up in Sacramento, when you purchase yours let me know I would be interested to see one in the flesh. For some reason the dealer here in Sac doesn't have any on the lot.

I will be in contact. I am working with Cartelligent to either find or order a QV that meets my specs. Hopefully it will not be too long.

I just saw this last night while looking on Sac Alfa Romeo website. This wasnt here a few days ago. VG Quad with the carbon fiber race seats...

I saw that one as well. It is very close, except for the seats. I prefer the standard seats with all of the power adjustments. I sat in the QV with the carbon fiber seats at Stevens Creek, not sure how comfortable they would be on a long drive (Napa or Tahoe for a weekend) :smile2:

I have a black QV with dark 5-hole and I would say go with the dark, they never look black to me.

I'm in the Bay Area as well and so far I've only seen a white base Giulia in the wild. Have you seen any QV's outside of the dealerships?

I'm also leaning towards the Vesuvio Grey when I do decide to pull the trigger. I'd go with the silver wheels, regular brakes and regular seats. There's a grey one at our local dealer in Cary, NC but it has the dark wheels, CCB and Sparco seats.

Well, my Cartelligent agent has placed the order with her dealer contact, unfortunately the QV is not eligible for the FCA Affiliate Rewards. Now starts the long wait.

How does the Cartelligent process work? I assume this is a car buying service where they do all the leg work for you? Do they have a premium added for their services?

They have a few options available, A free service for advice. The basic service for 295 and they deal with the dealer. A Premium service where they get you the car you want, take care of a trade in and do the finaceing (2.79 for 60 months, 3.49 for 72 months was what I was quoted) for 495. The Luxury service the will deliver and pick up your trade in for 995.

This makes me wonder if the Quad would look nice with the bright trim.
