Angry Alfa 0wner loyalty discount not for us!

Went to buy an Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti. THey don't have exactly what I want on the lot, so thinking about special ordering. The dealer told me that there is an owner loyalty discount and as I have a 69 spider (and have owned a spider for longer than I've been married or had kids) I should be eligible. He found out that this does not apply to owners of Alfa Romeos more than 20 years old. I was so furious that I left: I am the guy they should be courting not the guy stepping up from a FIAT SUV no? If you agree please tweet @AlfaRomeousa or retweet my tweet @rumifaizer.

I have never heard about a owner loyalty discount. I purchased three new Alfas and no one ever said anything about a discount for long time Alfa owners.

So I own the last 4 door Alfa sold in the US - a 1995 164 LS. As it is 22 years old, I guess I don't qualify. Sounds like a catch 22 to me.

I think you were manipulated by a young and inexperienced sales person.......who failed math.

Wouldn't mean anything in the States anyway, since there were no legal Alfas sold in the US after 1995 until the extremely limited 8C sales and the newer 4C.

If the loyalty discount policy WAS true, and the ownership was limited to car newer than 22 years, it clearly would show they are not interested at all in paying any attention to the older Alfas sold in the States.

I believe that is their policy in any event.
