I have the non-R variant and have put on 18K miles over 2 years. Agree with all the previous comments on the driving dynamics but will add that other than very high oil consumption, the car has had ZERO issues. In fact it has not been to the dealer for any reason as I do my own oil changes. It does go though a quart every 500 miles or so, so you do have to stay on top of that, but otherwise the car is near perfect.

I was tempted to get this as my Giulia QV was acting up but it seems that Alpha Romeo got their act together and fixed the issue so I'm out of the market for now. GLWS. I'll own one eventually.

Is that kind of oil consumption not a warranty issue with Ford or is that within their standards as acceptable?

Ford like many manufacturers will tell you that 1 quart/500 miles is fine. But it is really not since oil fouls up the cats and we all know it's excessive oil consumption.

my kit was complete and as you know there is so much room to work and access- pretty easy. I also bought extra wheels for PS4 street tires (Oregon wether). This also really helped the car settle down. The Cup2 tires with my track oriented alignment was two hand driving with the ruts in the roads up here.

I too wanted to cry when I sold that car (and the 997.2tt, GT3...)- I think these will be more special than the upcoming GT500.

OP- good luck with sale

As stated a couple posts earlier, this is within the manufacturer's spec and based on other's feedback, quite normal. Car and Driver just completed their long term test in the car (40K miles) and reported the same thing with theirs, though they did not check theirs on a regular basis and were often adding 2-3 quarts at time.

I use Trip Computer 2 to track miles since my last oil top off. When it hits 500 miles, I know to check the dip stick. Easy way to stay on top of things.
