    Ok, small Sprint update... I scored a set of Recaro SE seats that look like I should be able to fit to my stock seat rails without too much trouble. I guess its time to clear the parts out of the inside and get some seats mounted.

              I drove a new Giulia sedan.

              A friend passing through town let me drive his Giulia sedan. It's the TI model with the turbo 4, a sports package of springs etc, and the cool big Quad wheels in grey. Q4 AWD option, some other bits I think. Paddle shift. 13,000 mi.

              So, first impression.... very nice. Much better looking in person. With the optional Quad wheels it looks really purposeful without being as butch as the 500 hp Quad. Sport package lowers it some.

              Solid, tight suspension, no excess travel or movement but not at all harsh, very tight steering, nice comfortable small steering wheel, good seats, good gauges, good visibility, plenty of git-up with 300 hp, good brakes. All in all a very nice car. Fit and finish were good, not a noise or rattle.

              I don't get to drive new cars, and I haven't been in a newer BMW, but if that's what they're intended to compete with, it's really good.


              That is all.

                          Alfa is the "Title Sponsor" only at Sauber F1. There is no "Alfa Romeo" in it. But cool picture anyway.....

                          "Following an uncompetitive 2017, Sauber opted for a new aerodynamic concept for this year at the same time as receiving the latest specification of Ferrari power unit, and has made rapid progress to fight consistently in the midfield. Ericsson said at the start of the season that Sauber had the greatest potential to improve with its new car, and Ericsson believes that remains the case ahead of the second part of the season."

                            A friend tells me this was at the Alfa owners club national convention in Washington last week. Pretty sweet. Pretty fast (for 1938).
