1. saved $750 (plus) that it would have costed me to get it here.
2. Had an Alfisti spend time with the car finding its little issues and providing me with a list
3. Met a great fellow Alfisti and had a really wonderful evening chatting with him and his wife. This turned out to be the highlight!

I highly recommend doing things like this. It may involve being "generous with trust" but the rewards are awesome.

Win, win situation. Awesome! Plus you got Richard to drive your 164. He knows them well, and has helped me out in more than one occasion. Great guy! It couldn't have gone any better!
