Baseline - SS has 43k miles on it. I'm way in the black on it.

Probably worth about 29 on trade. Maybe 31 on a great day.

Opportunity -
Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
Options - drivers assist package and carboner fiber steering wheel.

Out the door - 76 (this is actually high as the tax doesn't figure my trade, probably about 1800 less realistically)

The question isn't Alfa or something else in the class it's Alfa or SS.

Keeping the SS is obviously the smart decision but man my jimmes are rustled by the Quadrifoglio.

But, will it be that much not enjoyable or better than the SS. :dunno:

Did you come in for a test drive yet? :dillerman:

I think for your circumstances the Alfa would be a 5/7 experience. Design is great, probably sounds :tits: , and drives equally well. I say go for it. Sometimes you gotta live a little, too. Full :plaid:

Plus, no one will have an Alfa at the next PDRBQ.

Just make sure you get roadside assistance.

Have you driven the Alfa much?

Sure it looks cool, but I wonder how much better it drives or nicer than it is inside. The SS is surprisingly great.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Also you didn’t make a pole, so you deserve to lose more money in the long run by going Alfa just for that oversight.

Keep the SS. Only alfa you should buy is a 4c.

Insurance is $50 a month more.

I drove it but not enough to really push it. I would love to ask for an overnight. That's a fine idea.

I'd love to buy your SS. They dont sell them here and 29k is a great price.

Dat shamrock doe, to an irishman it attracts like a pot'o'gold! Do whatever but I think the SS will depreciate really slowly and the :plaidpaisanmobile: will take a shit kicking on the used market.

Can't really go wrong with the alfa. :aintcare: it has a warranty... if it is TERRIBLE you can always lemon law it and get something else.

Why not? If you like the car :doit:

Tough call.

The :stig: in me says :doit: but the :scrooge: in me says :wtf: :butwhy: ; you already have a great, rare, reliable, comfortable car with :manuel: , :ellis: powah and :ellis: sounds. Because of my previously-mentioned upbringing by one depression-era parent and one Nazi-occupation-surviving parent, I often struggle with choosing want over need. I personally wouldn't :doit: because you're about to double your :baby: inventory but I know your financial future is pretty secure what with pending inheritance (I think?) and virtually guaranteed increasing :waxer: salary, plus you made the good decision of buying a house below what you could afford, so don't do what I would/wouldn't do. Plus, and perhaps most important, Dr. Rubutt is on board.

Bottom line is you may not be in this particular position in your life again where this move would make even remote sense. Carpe diem.

I wouldn't do it unless it's the Alfa and only the Alfa in your mind..

Otherwise, what's the rush?

That would be a good idea. They might just let you do it too, especially if they have a used one on the lot or something.

What is the reason for the :plac: ? Just because you want it? Or are you bored/unhappy with the SS? You could always throw a supercharger on the SS to get it to the same performance or beyond the QF. Bet that costs $10k, and yeah it's thrown out the window, but you're gonna throw more than that out the window in depreciation on the QF in the first year so call it even?

At the end of the day... if you're a car enthusiast... you want to be excited to drive your car. If you're not excited to drive your car then :gtfo: of it or change it around to suit your desires.

Does A&A make a kit? Could make a meetup out of it :roasted:

Cross that bridge when you get to it. We're playing checkers here, not chess. One move at a time.

I'd probably get a 911 or Boxster S or Ariel Nomad if I had this kind of cash available.
