She's heeeeeeere!! We went to take a look on Saturday, car was still hidden from public view and not washed yet. Great to finally see it / sit in it / rev the engine ;)...
Sales guy sent a couple quick pics today after they moved it to the showroom. Bring on May!

Day one: oh yes. Five countries in one day, including a break at the Nürburgring (no driving, just checking out other cars). I have a couple funny stories from yesterday, but they're for later, we're headed out for another drive now!

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
All-aluminum, 2.0-liter, 16 valve direct-injection turbo engine = 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque. ( damn, that's a lot of torque ).
All-aluminum 2.9-liter direct-injection bi-turbo V-6 = 505 horsepower and a flat torque curve with 443 lb.-ft. of peak torque.
Q4 all-wheel-drive system standard on all models.

I have NO IDEA what i want to get after my 2015 GTI.

Still smile every time i get into it.

Thoughts on options i want in the upgrade are going to include.

MOAR ground clearance
Ability to do some proper drifting. ( GTI Trajectory control cannot be turned off in my model , which ruins things a bit, or maybe it can, and i just need the 600$ cable to do so.)
MOAR Horse Powers

Not sure i want a V6, i like Turbocharged 4 cyl, and there is SOOOOOOO many options with these, including that Stinger there, but i do love my 5 door hatchbacks.

Been watching lots of Top Gear lately ( old crew) seasons 18-20 so far, and there is so many cars out there.

GLA 45 AMG Fully loaded would be nice, or maybe ill order from Jeremy Clarkson, that years version of 'The Excellent '

Got to drive my wife's uncles BMW m135i last week when in Cali, was pretty fun driving it around :)

I feel like i want to take a weekend and just ' test-drive ' cars, so i have a better idea about what i like in 4 vs 6 cylinders.

ndrwrld, is that just a concept image?

that Kia Stinger sedan is happening. Specs for both i've listed up above a bit.
the wagon will probably never be made, which is a fucking bummer. it looks sick.

Thoughts and recommendations for a hatchback? Time to get a new ride for my wife but something that I can drive from time to time.

Merc b class or Lexus?

Open to all suggestions at this point.
