The Alfa Romeo 4C might be one of the least practical automobiles on sale today. It has two small seats, no trunk, no glove box, narrow foot wells, a stiff ride and cruise control and backup sensors are optional. We’re really only scraping the surface of the cars impracticality with those points, however.
If you really want to know how much of a Sunday car the 4C is, go ahead and watch the instructional video above explaining how to replace the mid-engine sportscar’s windshield wiper fluid. Due to the 4C’s tight packaging and lack of a front trunk (or ‘frunk’), engineers had to get creative when placing the windshield wiper fluid reserve and stuck it where a front trunk would have been if the 4C’s hood wasn’t fixed in place.
Refilling the tank requires the removal of self-tapping screws and using a three-piece funnel and extension pipe supplied with the car. Unless you’re a person of great patience, this isn’t a job you do at the gas station quickly after filling up. We’re sure Alfa owners aren’t too upset over it, though. Just another day in the life of an Italian car owner.
