hey what is up guys Syed here and today

2
00:00:02,399 –> 00:00:08,400
i am in the alpha romeo Giulia

3
00:00:04,880 –> 00:00:09,200
super alright so the owner roger is with

4
00:00:08,400 –> 00:00:11,120

00:00:09,200 –> 00:00:13,280
and he was gonna be sharing with us a

6
00:00:11,120 –> 00:00:15,440
bit more about alfa romeo ownership

7
00:00:13,280 –> 00:00:17,119
so some very quick specs for this car

8
00:00:15,440 –> 00:00:18,400
this has a 2 liter 4 cylinder

9
00:00:17,119 –> 00:00:21,760
turbocharged engine

10
00:00:18,400 –> 00:00:24,080
198 horsepower 330 newton meters

11
00:00:21,760 –> 00:00:25,760
of torque 0 200 timing for this car is

12
00:00:24,080 –> 00:00:28,640
6.6 seconds

13
00:00:25,760 –> 00:00:30,000
top speed is 230 kilometers per hour

14
00:00:28,640 –> 00:00:33,120
this car is also a rear wheel

15
00:00:30,000 –> 00:00:35,280
drive and it comes with the zf 8 hp

16
00:00:33,120 –> 00:00:37,200
transmission so in singapore you can get

17
00:00:35,280 –> 00:00:38,800
this alfa romeo Giulia

18
00:00:37,200 –> 00:00:41,120
in three different variants all right

19
00:00:38,800 –> 00:00:44,719
the super the veloce and the

20
00:00:41,120 –> 00:00:46,960
qv the quadrifoglio verde

21
00:00:44,719 –> 00:00:46,960
all right

22
00:00:48,550 –> 00:00:52,800
[Music]

23
00:00:50,640 –> 00:00:54,399
so from a segment standpoint okay this

24
00:00:52,800 –> 00:00:58,160
car competes with the 3 series the

25
00:00:54,399 –> 00:01:01,199
mercedes c-class audi a4 jaguar xe

26
00:00:58,160 –> 00:01:03,039
and the volvo s60 alright so i think

27
00:01:01,199 –> 00:01:04,799
that’s about it for the specs of this

28
00:01:03,039 –> 00:01:07,360
car let’s go for drive see what this car

29
00:01:04,799 –> 00:01:07,360
is all about

30
00:01:07,920 –> 00:01:12,560
okay so roger the first question i have

31
00:01:10,560 –> 00:01:14,400
is why did you choose the alfa romeo

32
00:01:12,560 –> 00:01:16,159
this is not your first alpha right yeah

33
00:01:14,400 –> 00:01:18,159
right is there a reason why you stick to

34
00:01:16,159 –> 00:01:18,799
alfa romeo i think first because of the

35
00:01:18,159 –> 00:01:21,840
looks

36
00:01:18,799 –> 00:01:26,720
okay of course looks can be quite

37
00:01:21,840 –> 00:01:27,840
subjective to me i quite like the design

38
00:01:26,720 –> 00:01:30,640
in fact i like the design

39
00:01:27,840 –> 00:01:31,600
very a lot and also though because of

40
00:01:30,640 –> 00:01:33,680
the color also

41
00:01:31,600 –> 00:01:35,040
okay and next thing is the way that this

42
00:01:33,680 –> 00:01:38,560
car drives

43
00:01:35,040 –> 00:01:41,680
yeah then uh the way that it drives um

44
00:01:38,560 –> 00:01:45,119
the way that it corners uh it corners

45
00:01:41,680 –> 00:01:48,799
pretty flat so there’s a very high level

46
00:01:45,119 –> 00:01:51,200
of control control then

47
00:01:48,799 –> 00:01:52,720
the steering is also very sharp and very

48
00:01:51,200 –> 00:01:55,280
communicative

49
00:01:52,720 –> 00:01:56,840
so that’s what i like about cars so i

50
00:01:55,280 –> 00:02:00,159
was looking at a

51
00:01:56,840 –> 00:02:03,040
g30 series uh 530

52
00:02:00,159 –> 00:02:04,320
okay if i am to compare between 530 and

53
00:02:03,040 –> 00:02:07,759
this car

54
00:02:04,320 –> 00:02:09,920
uh 530 actually feels pretty fast

55
00:02:07,759 –> 00:02:11,039
uh the interior is a lot nicer right the

56
00:02:09,920 –> 00:02:12,560
infotainment system

57
00:02:11,039 –> 00:02:14,080
than the way that you know the screen

58
00:02:12,560 –> 00:02:16,239
and how they split and uh and

59
00:02:14,080 –> 00:02:18,080
all these things but the the thing is

60
00:02:16,239 –> 00:02:22,720
that i think um

61
00:02:18,080 –> 00:02:22,720
the g30 is uh quite

62
00:02:23,520 –> 00:02:26,959
a bit grown up but the drive for the

63
00:02:25,599 –> 00:02:29,360
drive of it is fantastic

64
00:02:26,959 –> 00:02:30,560
the steering of it is not as

65
00:02:29,360 –> 00:02:33,280
communicative as

66
00:02:30,560 –> 00:02:33,680
this kind of longer wheelbase heavier

67
00:02:33,280 –> 00:02:36,160
yeah

68
00:02:33,680 –> 00:02:38,080
so yellow true yeah but on the move it

69
00:02:36,160 –> 00:02:39,519
actually doesn’t feel like a big car

70
00:02:38,080 –> 00:02:40,959
oh yeah yeah yeah correct the steering

71
00:02:39,519 –> 00:02:43,200
is super light yeah so the steering

72
00:02:40,959 –> 00:02:46,400
feels a bit deep

73
00:02:43,200 –> 00:02:48,239
yeah so now i am quite particular about

74
00:02:46,400 –> 00:02:49,360
steering and the steering response and

75
00:02:48,239 –> 00:02:52,720
you know the you know

76
00:02:49,360 –> 00:02:54,640
uh having communicative uh steering

77
00:02:52,720 –> 00:02:55,920
uh simple reason now because i mean we

78
00:02:54,640 –> 00:02:57,280
are not pro drivers

79
00:02:55,920 –> 00:02:59,840
some you know once a while we like to

80
00:02:57,280 –> 00:02:59,840
drive fast

81
00:03:00,480 –> 00:03:08,720
yeah more than once for you

82
00:03:05,280 –> 00:03:11,280
so if the car is too well insulated

83
00:03:08,720 –> 00:03:12,560
okay and i don’t know correct and then

84
00:03:11,280 –> 00:03:13,200
uh guess what now what happens if we

85
00:03:12,560 –> 00:03:14,879
drive along

86
00:03:13,200 –> 00:03:16,800
uh north south highway let’s say at

87
00:03:14,879 –> 00:03:17,519
those you know uh very high speed line

88
00:03:16,800 –> 00:03:21,040
right 200

89
00:03:17,519 –> 00:03:24,000
correct and then if uh uh

90
00:03:21,040 –> 00:03:24,640
if the car is not communicative then uh

91
00:03:24,000 –> 00:03:27,200
whether we

92
00:03:24,640 –> 00:03:29,599
over steal or we understeer but it is

93
00:03:27,200 –> 00:03:31,360
negated by the electronics huh

94
00:03:29,599 –> 00:03:33,040
and then when [ __ ] really happens oh

95
00:03:31,360 –> 00:03:36,400
then too late now

96
00:03:33,040 –> 00:03:37,680
right yeah so therefore i prefer to have

97
00:03:36,400 –> 00:03:39,760
a car that

98
00:03:37,680 –> 00:03:41,760
communicative yeah yeah i know you can

99
00:03:39,760 –> 00:03:44,159
feel the rules so you know before we

100
00:03:41,760 –> 00:03:44,799
go now like you know any serious before

101
00:03:44,159 –> 00:03:48,319
[ __ ]

102
00:03:44,799 –> 00:03:50,319
[ __ ] happens yeah

103
00:03:48,319 –> 00:03:51,680
so i would say that uh alfa romeo Giulia

104
00:03:50,319 –> 00:03:53,840
is a car like that

105
00:03:51,680 –> 00:03:55,519
okay and then you’ve owned this car

106
00:03:53,840 –> 00:03:58,560
since january this year

107
00:03:55,519 –> 00:04:00,799
so it’s about five months five months so

108
00:03:58,560 –> 00:04:01,920
how has your ownership i mean it’s very

109
00:04:00,799 –> 00:04:03,519
short but how has your

110
00:04:01,920 –> 00:04:05,599
ownership experience been for the past

111
00:04:03,519 –> 00:04:07,680
five months any issues

112
00:04:05,599 –> 00:04:09,280
no no no issues like no this guy is also

114
00:04:09,280 –> 00:04:15,360

the things you

117
00:04:15,920 –> 00:04:19,359
just mentioned well i think to start off

118
00:04:18,239 –> 00:04:22,000
it is not that common

119
00:04:19,359 –> 00:04:23,600
yes oh by the way yeah um when i just

120
00:04:22,000 –> 00:04:24,880
met roger just now within the span of

121
00:04:23,600 –> 00:04:26,400
like maybe 20 minutes

122
00:04:24,880 –> 00:04:28,000
we got like two compliments already from

123
00:04:26,400 –> 00:04:30,400

alpha drivers even if i don’t know them

179
00:06:24,960 –> 00:06:29,520

is the is the screen you know the

186
00:06:40,319 –> 00:06:44,800
infotainment screen

187
00:06:41,440 –> 00:06:46,160
okay so uh like one uh one is very

188
00:06:44,800 –> 00:06:49,520
strange quote is that

189
00:06:46,160 –> 00:06:50,880
if i plug in android uh phone and enable

190
00:06:49,520 –> 00:06:54,560
android auto

191
00:06:50,880 –> 00:06:56,880
the screen is only like maybe

192
00:06:54,560 –> 00:06:57,919
maybe three quarters right yeah but if i

193
00:06:56,880 –> 00:07:00,479
plug in uh

194
00:06:57,919 –> 00:07:01,840
an iphone then it’s full screen so i

195
00:07:00,479 –> 00:07:02,479
don’t know it’s probably some software

196
00:07:01,840 –> 00:07:04,000
kind of thing

197
00:07:02,479 –> 00:07:04,940
right yeah also shows that iphone is

198
00:07:04,000 –> 00:07:08,560
superior

199
00:07:04,940 –> 00:07:10,080
[Laughter]

200
00:07:08,560 –> 00:07:12,639
then the other thing is i think the

201
00:07:10,080 –> 00:07:12,639
interior

202
00:07:12,720 –> 00:07:16,000
could be better could be better okay

203
00:07:14,800 –> 00:07:17,599
just keep the distance

204
00:07:16,000 –> 00:07:19,520
i feel like it’s a bit like a the

205
00:07:17,599 –> 00:07:21,199
italian version of a jaguar

206
00:07:19,520 –> 00:07:23,120
yeah because jaguar also drives very

207
00:07:21,199 –> 00:07:23,919
well yeah but the interior is not as

208
00:07:23,120 –> 00:07:26,080
nice as

209
00:07:23,919 –> 00:07:27,280
the germans are basically audible

210
00:07:26,080 –> 00:07:29,680
mercedes

211
00:07:27,280 –> 00:07:31,280
okay so right now we are in dynamic mode

212
00:07:29,680 –> 00:07:34,720
which is the sports mode for

213
00:07:31,280 –> 00:07:37,520
alpha romeo and we are in some

214
00:07:34,720 –> 00:07:38,800
twisty roads using the pedal yeah um you

215
00:07:37,520 –> 00:07:41,360
know how to stay can you get in

216
00:07:38,800 –> 00:07:43,039
singapore right so

217
00:07:41,360 –> 00:07:45,520
and there are these are not like things

218
00:07:43,039 –> 00:07:48,960
obviously it’s like one

219
00:07:45,520 –> 00:07:51,680
one direction each way so

220
00:07:48,960 –> 00:07:52,240
i know you want me to drive fast but a

221
00:07:51,680 –> 00:07:53,840
bit

222
00:07:52,240 –> 00:07:55,840
no problem dangerous i understand i

223
00:07:53,840 –> 00:07:58,160
understand that we are all law-abiding

224
00:07:55,840 –> 00:08:00,000
citizens always especially me you know i

225
00:07:58,160 –> 00:08:03,599
have super lot of riding on

226
00:08:00,000 –> 00:08:03,599
yes and keeping to speed limits

227
00:08:04,000 –> 00:08:10,720
me too yeah yeah you can feel the pool

228
00:08:07,599 –> 00:08:13,759
the response is quite immediate yeah

229
00:08:10,720 –> 00:08:15,680
one of the reason is the entire

230
00:08:13,759 –> 00:08:17,520
architecture of the car

231
00:08:15,680 –> 00:08:19,120
so the drive shaft is made of carbon

232
00:08:17,520 –> 00:08:20,960
fiber

233
00:08:19,120 –> 00:08:23,120
all right yeah then this carbon fiber

234
00:08:20,960 –> 00:08:23,680
drive shaft yes yes in fact most alphas

235
00:08:23,120 –> 00:08:27,120
are

236
00:08:23,680 –> 00:08:28,800
okay yeah but however it also means that

237
00:08:27,120 –> 00:08:31,599
if it breaks down it’s going to cost

238
00:08:28,800 –> 00:08:33,680
a lot a bit more a bit more the

239
00:08:31,599 –> 00:08:35,760
suspension component is also lightened

240
00:08:33,680 –> 00:08:37,760
yeah the brakes also it’s uh this guy

241
00:08:35,760 –> 00:08:40,000
notice a lot of the components they’ve

242
00:08:37,760 –> 00:08:41,440
like purposely make it in such a way

243
00:08:40,000 –> 00:08:43,039
that it saves weight

244
00:08:41,440 –> 00:08:44,480
correct it’s not too heavy correct one

245
00:08:43,039 –> 00:08:45,839
of the things that you don’t like about

246
00:08:44,480 –> 00:08:47,600
this car

247
00:08:45,839 –> 00:08:50,560
so first thing right is that because the

248
00:08:47,600 –> 00:08:52,800
pricing is is not too expensive

249
00:08:50,560 –> 00:08:54,000
i cannot expect the interior to be super

250
00:08:52,800 –> 00:08:56,720
nice the car to drive

251
00:08:54,000 –> 00:08:58,000
very well they have a lot of power

252
00:08:56,720 –> 00:08:59,680
definitely at that price there’s

253
00:08:58,000 –> 00:09:02,959
something that you need to

254
00:08:59,680 –> 00:09:06,320
uh you know you need to sacrifice

255
00:09:02,959 –> 00:09:08,240
yeah so i think in for this car i think

256
00:09:06,320 –> 00:09:09,839
it will be the interior yeah

257
00:09:08,240 –> 00:09:11,519
yeah but i mean for this i think for

258
00:09:09,839 –> 00:09:13,600
this uh pre-phase leaf one

259
00:09:11,519 –> 00:09:14,959
the facelifted one the interior looks

260
00:09:13,600 –> 00:09:18,080
way much better

261
00:09:14,959 –> 00:09:18,880
like a use of aluminium strips here the

262
00:09:18,080 –> 00:09:20,320
door

263
00:09:18,880 –> 00:09:22,000
actually you can get the seats in brown

264
00:09:20,320 –> 00:09:24,080
and all that right yeah

265
00:09:22,000 –> 00:09:25,440
so i think if you had that option well

266
00:09:24,080 –> 00:09:27,760
it would be very very good

267
00:09:25,440 –> 00:09:29,600
actually if it’s red color seed would be

268
00:09:27,760 –> 00:09:30,000
very nice but because my body is red

269
00:09:29,600 –> 00:09:33,040
right

270
00:09:30,000 –> 00:09:34,880
so can i match it a bit weird

271
00:09:33,040 –> 00:09:38,399
but if it’s red color seed and then red

272
00:09:34,880 –> 00:09:38,399
color dash oh beautiful

273
00:09:38,880 –> 00:09:42,720
not that direct this is a bit exotic

274
00:09:41,680 –> 00:09:44,959
right

275
00:09:42,720 –> 00:09:46,560
a bit more exotic without the exotic

276
00:09:44,959 –> 00:09:49,680
price tag correct correct

277
00:09:46,560 –> 00:09:51,440
correct correct oh yeah the other thing

278
00:09:49,680 –> 00:09:56,080
if they could uh

279
00:09:51,440 –> 00:09:58,160
uh have done better is to have a

280
00:09:56,080 –> 00:09:59,600
louder exhaust right yeah exhaust

281
00:09:58,160 –> 00:10:01,680
correct yeah this exhaust is too

282
00:09:59,600 –> 00:10:04,560
it’s too muted now yes the expectation

283
00:10:01,680 –> 00:10:04,560
for alfa romeo is

284
00:10:10,240 –> 00:10:14,320
correct correct correct but i guess

285
00:10:12,640 –> 00:10:15,680
comfort them now because

286
00:10:14,320 –> 00:10:17,839
you know that’s what the market wants

287
00:10:15,680 –> 00:10:19,920
right actually they

288
00:10:17,839 –> 00:10:21,120
it’s just maybe the dashboard the look

289
00:10:19,920 –> 00:10:22,720
of it is

290
00:10:21,120 –> 00:10:24,320
could be better the material used i

291
00:10:22,720 –> 00:10:27,600
think it’s okay just the look it’s

292
00:10:24,320 –> 00:10:30,560
not uh yeah not that appealing yeah

293
00:10:27,600 –> 00:10:31,360
and the door yeah okay this is hollow

294
00:10:30,560 –> 00:10:34,720
okay

295
00:10:31,360 –> 00:10:37,519
um the trim level for

296
00:10:34,720 –> 00:10:38,560
uh one spec higher that’s uh it’s

297
00:10:37,519 –> 00:10:41,600
different

298
00:10:38,560 –> 00:10:43,360
so material’s all different isn’t it uh

299
00:10:41,600 –> 00:10:44,959
some some part of some person yeah like

300
00:10:43,360 –> 00:10:47,360
this part right

301
00:10:44,959 –> 00:10:48,079
and i think probably have some stitching

302
00:10:47,360 –> 00:10:50,399
or something

303
00:10:48,079 –> 00:10:52,079
okay yeah then there’s some chromes

304
00:10:50,399 –> 00:10:54,880
around somewhere

305
00:10:52,079 –> 00:10:56,560
oh sorry aluminium surround somewhere so

306
00:10:54,880 –> 00:10:59,040
it’s a bit different so but because this

307
00:10:56,560 –> 00:11:00,399
is the base model

308
00:10:59,040 –> 00:11:02,320
the interior is just very simple

309
00:11:00,399 –> 00:11:04,640
functional no no

310
00:11:02,320 –> 00:11:07,120
weird buttons anywhere yeah hey you can

311
00:11:04,640 –> 00:11:07,120
drift here

312
00:11:07,519 –> 00:11:13,360
i’m not a good no bro okay roger one

313
00:11:11,519 –> 00:11:15,440
area of alpha romeo ownership

314
00:11:13,360 –> 00:11:17,040
maintenance and reliability

315
00:11:15,440 –> 00:11:18,480
do you have anything you want to share

316
00:11:17,040 –> 00:11:22,000
with us i think

317
00:11:18,480 –> 00:11:25,760
alpha ownership is just like owning any

318
00:11:22,000 –> 00:11:28,880
continental cars so i’ve had

319
00:11:25,760 –> 00:11:32,320
other continental cars uh before and

320
00:11:28,880 –> 00:11:34,640
uh and presently also um

321
00:11:32,320 –> 00:11:36,959
i think the first thing to be mindful of

322
00:11:34,640 –> 00:11:39,120
is how we maintain the car

323
00:11:36,959 –> 00:11:40,839
and as well as you know you know you

324
00:11:39,120 –> 00:11:44,640
know like our daily

325
00:11:40,839 –> 00:11:45,279
uh sop right like my car just out of

326
00:11:44,640 –> 00:11:47,440
habit

327
00:11:45,279 –> 00:11:48,399
you know uh maybe because you know i’ve

328
00:11:47,440 –> 00:11:51,200
drove for some

329
00:11:48,399 –> 00:11:52,800
really old cars before so very careful

330
00:11:51,200 –> 00:11:54,720
yeah correct correct correct yeah so i

331
00:11:52,800 –> 00:11:56,639
will you know

332
00:11:54,720 –> 00:11:59,040
at least warm up my car a little bit

333
00:11:56,639 –> 00:12:01,760
first before i drive off and before

334
00:11:59,040 –> 00:12:02,560
the engine and the gearbox is a fully

335
00:12:01,760 –> 00:12:04,000
warm-up no

336
00:12:02,560 –> 00:12:07,519
then i would drive like you know very

337
00:12:04,000 –> 00:12:09,680
slowly uh keep the rpm low

338
00:12:07,519 –> 00:12:10,959
and so i have been practicing that so

339
00:12:09,680 –> 00:12:13,120
like what uh

340
00:12:10,959 –> 00:12:15,120
what you said uh just now that uh no

341
00:12:13,120 –> 00:12:17,920
this is my second alpha

342
00:12:15,120 –> 00:12:18,720
so my first alpha is a pretty problem

343
00:12:17,920 –> 00:12:22,880
free

344
00:12:18,720 –> 00:12:26,720
in fact uh possibly

345
00:12:22,880 –> 00:12:29,040
even more problem-free than my previous

346
00:12:26,720 –> 00:12:30,880
german cars okay which german car was

347
00:12:29,040 –> 00:12:35,040
yeah uh i had a couple

348
00:12:30,880 –> 00:12:38,240
i like ods and uh yeah a4 yeah b7 right

349
00:12:35,040 –> 00:12:40,079
yeah yeah alpha is the mito

350
00:12:38,240 –> 00:12:41,839
right that’s right that’s right the yeah

351
00:12:40,079 –> 00:12:43,600
and the servicing part of it and the

352
00:12:41,839 –> 00:12:46,800
repair part of it

353
00:12:43,600 –> 00:12:49,360
but there are actually a couple of

354
00:12:46,800 –> 00:12:50,079
uh alpha specialist workshops in

355
00:12:49,360 –> 00:12:53,120
singapore

356
00:12:50,079 –> 00:12:53,920
okay so there are two of them in singing

357
00:12:53,120 –> 00:12:55,440
and i think

358
00:12:53,920 –> 00:12:56,959
two or three of them in singing then

359
00:12:55,440 –> 00:13:00,160
somewhere else also

360
00:12:56,959 –> 00:13:01,839
uh but uh of late i have been going back

361
00:13:00,160 –> 00:13:05,040
to the dealer

362
00:13:01,839 –> 00:13:07,200
uh and surprisingly the dealer oh yeah

363
00:13:05,040 –> 00:13:09,920
correct like for my for my

364
00:13:07,200 –> 00:13:11,600
for my mito servicing right i think it’s

365
00:13:09,920 –> 00:13:14,560
only 120

366
00:13:11,600 –> 00:13:16,000
oil change or oil filter and all this i

367
00:13:14,560 –> 00:13:18,079
think it’s quite reasonable

368
00:13:16,000 –> 00:13:21,120
for a comfy car they’re actually very

369
00:13:18,079 –> 00:13:21,680
cheap yeah yeah 120 for oil change at a

370
00:13:21,120 –> 00:13:23,760
dealer

371
00:13:21,680 –> 00:13:25,040
correct correct correct correct yeah so

372
00:13:23,760 –> 00:13:27,839
the

373
00:13:25,040 –> 00:13:29,519
yeah so the cost of servicing is uh

374
00:13:27,839 –> 00:13:32,240
reasonable

375
00:13:29,519 –> 00:13:33,360
uh parts are also okay the cost of parts

376

384
00:13:50,079 –> 00:13:53,680
and the good thing about the

385
00:13:51,360 –> 00:13:55,120
alpha dealership is that my personal

386
00:13:53,680 –> 00:13:57,839
experience

387
00:13:55,120 –> 00:13:58,800
um unlike some other dealers where no

388
00:13:57,839 –> 00:14:00,720
they try to

389
00:13:58,800 –> 00:14:02,079
rigger the way out you know when you got

390
00:14:00,720 –> 00:14:04,480
any claims right yeah

391
00:14:02,079 –> 00:14:05,839
they try to yeah but i think uh the

392
00:14:04,480 –> 00:14:08,000
alpha dealership

393
00:14:05,839 –> 00:14:09,680
euro automobile they’re pretty

394
00:14:08,000 –> 00:14:11,519
reasonable yeah

395
00:14:09,680 –> 00:14:12,800
and sometimes you know they do certain

396
00:14:11,519 –> 00:14:15,279
things uh

397
00:14:12,800 –> 00:14:16,480
out of goodwill or for free and like you

398
00:14:15,279 –> 00:14:20,399
know some tracks and

399
00:14:16,480 –> 00:14:23,279
all these things yeah correct correct

400
00:14:20,399 –> 00:14:24,880
by the way with this car i don’t dare to

401
00:14:23,279 –> 00:14:28,480
blip the throttle

402
00:14:24,880 –> 00:14:30,240
rather i have to go in gently uh reason

403
00:14:28,480 –> 00:14:33,360
being just now um

404
00:14:30,240 –> 00:14:35,440
roger actually did a drift

405
00:14:33,360 –> 00:14:36,720
with this car and he’s using like uh

406
00:14:35,440 –> 00:14:39,279
ps4s right yeah

407
00:14:36,720 –> 00:14:40,240
yeah yeah very grippy tires the car seat

408
00:14:39,279 –> 00:14:42,160
can break traction

409
00:14:40,240 –> 00:14:44,800
even now in like these kind of like

410
00:14:42,160 –> 00:14:46,720
empty roads i don’t blip the throttle

411
00:14:44,800 –> 00:14:49,519
you have to like feather it in

412
00:14:46,720 –> 00:14:50,240
gradually yeah if that makes sense okay

413
00:14:49,519 –> 00:14:52,480
yeah sorry

414
00:14:50,240 –> 00:14:54,240
yeah yeah but if you can drift the car

415
00:14:52,480 –> 00:14:56,240
wouldn’t it make you feel like a track

416
00:14:54,240 –> 00:14:59,680
day hero

417
00:14:56,240 –> 00:15:00,399
not my car yeah but just now the drift

418
00:14:59,680 –> 00:15:02,959
was actually

419
00:15:00,399 –> 00:15:03,760
quite well managed i can feel the

420
00:15:02,959 –> 00:15:05,680
pivoting

421
00:15:03,760 –> 00:15:06,959
of the car so with regards to

422
00:15:05,680 –> 00:15:08,880
maintenance and all that

423
00:15:06,959 –> 00:15:10,720
uh i think you’ve already mentioned like

424
00:15:08,880 –> 00:15:13,120
it’s actually not that expensive

425
00:15:10,720 –> 00:15:15,440
as compared to some other cars uh what

426
00:15:13,120 –> 00:15:18,880
about reliability

427
00:15:15,440 –> 00:15:21,279
uh this guy is still relatively new so

428
00:15:18,880 –> 00:15:22,240
in terms of alpha in general it’s pretty

429
00:15:21,279 –> 00:15:25,680
okay

430
00:15:22,240 –> 00:15:28,720
okay yeah yeah so for example right

431
00:15:25,680 –> 00:15:32,399
the pre the predecessor to alpha

432
00:15:28,720 –> 00:15:36,560
Giulia is a 159 okay so i know

433
00:15:32,399 –> 00:15:38,480
of at least two or three friends who

434
00:15:36,560 –> 00:15:40,240
renew the coe

435
00:15:38,480 –> 00:15:42,639
so i think that speaks a lot now because

436
00:15:40,240 –> 00:15:44,240
if the car is not that reliable or is

437
00:15:42,639 –> 00:15:46,320
problematic nobody would

438
00:15:44,240 –> 00:15:48,320
nobody would know but of course you know

439
00:15:46,320 –> 00:15:51,279
this you know the friends who

440
00:15:48,320 –> 00:15:52,720
renew the coe of their cars of their uh

441
00:15:51,279 –> 00:15:56,160
159 really treat the car

442
00:15:52,720 –> 00:15:57,680
very well so yeah guys that’s about it

00:15:56,160 –> 00:15:59,199
