Resale values: I don't plan on ever selling my Ti or my 4C. That will be the problem of my heirs and by then they might be even more valuable. The 4C for sure.
Oil change: I've had the oil change twice now in our Ti. $200.00 This number is largely independent from one dealer to the next. I had the oil changed at 500 miles and again at 10,000 miles.
Fuel consumption: We put 9,000 miles on by driving to Maine and back. Home is Los Angeles. The car claimed 35 to 37 MPG while east bound (wind at our back). The car claimed 28-29 west bound (into the wind). This was all highway sitting on 80 mph (legal in some states). I don't have an actual yet. I need to calculate the notes still. The car reset itself when we got into New York so I don't have a trip total now.
Our trip was flawless. The car, 2017 Giulia Ti Q2 (yes, LSD) is three months old. The 10,000 mile service included seven (7) updates, RRT, not TSB. An RRT has a higher priority and done no matter what. TSB only gets done when the customer complains about a problem. The RRT smoothed out a few things, most notably a rough idle while cold.
