    Needed the estate and ended up with a Stelvio 280bhp petrol. No chance of a Giulia Sportwagon from what I have read - which would have been the weapon of choice. It was either that or a German alternative and after my last very poor experience with an E63 went back to Alfa.

    The interior is not on a par, but I do not regret the choice. We shall see how the ongoing ownership experience pans out. It cannot be any worse than the Mercedes UK treatment.

    Absolutely. I've mentioned it whenever I've been in an Alfa dealership and they say its a common complaint from customers. Hopefully they'll see sense, but I don't see it happening any time soon, primarily because of the Stelvio.

    Confirmation that Alfa are missing a trick with not having an SW.
