Yes, but with the very very important caveat that they are very sensitive to the wrong oil and old oil.So...would you say the engine is a reliable, long term option? The one I'm looking at (in the pic) is a 2017 with 31,000 km on the clock.
The Multiair system is essentially a series of hydraulic plungers modulated by solenoids - if they have the wrong oil (such as with poor anti foaming causing cavitation in the valve train hydraulics) or old oil (causing sludge or carbon blockages) and the Multiair unit will be a $1500-2000 bill to replace.
The Alfa has 15,000km oil changes, I double that and change every 7500….
