I was most interested to see the correspondence referring to Alfa Romeo cars.
I recently purchased a new 1600 Spyder and less than one month later sold it!
Whilst the steering, road-holding and performance are superb, the hurried assembly work and finish were appalling.
However, it really does make one appreciate the most excellent finish of our cheaper home products, e.g., Mini Minor and Ford GT.
The agents (Alfa) here must be in a difficult position.
