Black Phone Dials (kinda)
Regular Sport Seats (not racing seats although I dig the carbon fiber backs on those)
Carbon Ceramic Brakes
Custom Car Cover
Interesting. I have heard similar and I think many dealers may feel pressured to sell what's built and allocated. I think the carbon shortage announced a month ago or so probably kept the price high.
I was working hard to try and build a Quad with tan interior until I found it was black only. But the brochure lists red, ice and black/dark gray trim inserts. Ice with white and green stitching. I want red trim with red stitching. I may be ordering as early as next month but will be better off with an 8 month plus delivery date. I want to build my car exactly how I want it. No carbon seats or brakes plus other details. If I get any resistance, I will walk away. I made peace with gray alcantara and can live with that because in many cases it's lighter than leather but that's not always true. Alcantara can be made in tan too so it's not impossible. What I really fear is a coupe showing up in the next year or two. If it does I will trade my sedan in and get one.
Just got a bundled insurance quote for a Quad with my Miata and condo homeowners through Travelers. Not bad and less additional per month than the stupid interest I was paying on one of my old cards I'm consolidating. Will have it out of the way in time to finance. The Miata only costs me like 30-100 bucks on it's own!
I ordered in February and it arrived May 12th.....Re: interior option colors....I think the Ice/White may only be available for the Monte Carlo Blue and / or perhaps the Volcano Black...I have seen a Competizione Red Quad with Red Lower Dash and Red Door inserts and as much as I love some contrast in my interiors, I was not especially fond of the red dash and door inserts....as for tan Alcantara I would caution you to really think about that....the Series 4 Spiders sold in the early 90's had Alcantara and Leather seats (much like these)..the black ones looked significantly less worn for longer periods of time....the tan seats were very nice when new, but did not age well....JMHO....Dino
How long was your car on order or was it from dealer stock?
When I ordered mine I had to order the CC brakes @ $5500.00. At some point Alfa raised the price to $8000.00 but the dealer said Alfa was honoring the original, as ordered pricing. Didn't know if you where in the same boat so to speak and the dealer didn't mention this.
