    I’d contest the radios it’s in the top 10 best radios for 2018. Now the speakers not so much. Only fronts. Two midrange and two tweeters. No amp. So no bass. But who wants to listen to Rachmaninov when you have that beautiful instrument behind you.

    I drive mine often. Not as much as some, more than most. Have had it approximate two years and 15k miles.

    On my third set of rear tires. Second on the front.
    One oil change. They made me pay for it because it was early. ( of course they should have said something).
    Probably avg 2-3 days a week except for December/January it was in the 30s and raining almost all the time.

    Well I can finally check off on the bucket list that I drove an Alfa Romeo. I got to drive a 4c over the weekend and it was something else. I have always had a thing for these cars and have always wanted to drive a 4c. I was left feeling like a giddy school girl.
    The car had some mods done do it- exhaust, stage 2 chip, and steering bushings. The suspension creaked and groaned, the turbo charger made all kinds of whistles and guttural noises. With the advent of fake engine noises and numb electric steering I am glad someone is still making something like this and I am delighted it is Alfa Romeo. A massive thank you to the owner who was a pure gentleman and let me have a go.

    The 4c is probably the last truly honest car. We haven't seen this since the 80's. What I mean by 'honest" is that it doesn't apologize for what it is or cover something up for the mass market.

    Its what 2 seat sports cars used to be before they became "GT's"

    Agreed with this. New "sports cars" look huge to me, and aren't nearly single purpose as is the 4C (perhaps the Elise/Exige, but they're not available in the US except as used cars). Most new sports cars are really GT cars.

    Not sure if I would've ordered a 4C as such, but I wish there had been options to delete the A/C, radio, and have manual windows. A 6 spd manual option would've been nice as well, though this topic has been beaten to death.

    Sadly, it's not that the car is "criminally underrated", it's just the nature of today's buying public. Any car person will sing it's praises...but... Folks talk a big game on the internet...."light weight, visceral, etc..." but when it comes time to BUY a car....well, all one needs to do is look at the sales.
    It is too bad. A friend has a 4C and it is a hoot to drive. And honestly, I would never buy one.

    That's right. Cars now are so multi-purpose and so refined that they excel so much they are boring.

    For many great cars, it is actually their so called "flaws"--from an engineering perspective--that actually give them their unique character and contribute heavily to them being spectacular to drive.
