Didn't get a pic sorry. But that engine note, I defy anyone to hear that and then want an M3

I saw one today as well.

I also saw a transporter with one and a Stelvio in their travel pyjamas...

Every time a see a M3 or Jag XE, I say "you bought the wrong car"

I really like the Giulia, thinking of going for an old GT while we save for a deposit on a Giulia (need a lottry win for a QV..)

I was thinking the Q.V. may depreciate rather as it is costly to run. So give it a few years...

Not sure where you get that from Cyderdelic - a few QV owners are getting better mpg than me in my veloce!

Driving like an old lady (most of the time - really trying!), the best I'm getting (on average) is 30mpg. If i drove it without thinking about economy, i fear it would be more like 20mpg! Some of the QV owners are averaging 33+ day to day driving, including the odd thresh in 'dynamic'.

I'm hoping mine will improve once i've got a few more miles on her...

It is a company car/company fuel, but trying not to draw attention to my usage! Saying that, there are a few Porsches on the fleet.

Aww, I was hoping the thing would be affordable in a few years
