The ENcap result was disappointing,but no,noit the worst in history! And the car still got an overall good score,its just that some new cars have been geting maximum points recently,so 3 stars seems crap now!
And it aint slow! The car can keep pace with a Golf T and has ten times the character.AS for oil,well the 2Ltr TS is one of the best engines going imo,it just a drink,thats all,nothing wrong with that! Most Alfa drivers are car nerds as well which doesn't help as they will be using 0 and 5w oil,which will get supped at an alarming rate. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] .
As for the BMW.......well they have resolved the steering feel problems but still compared to the 147 its still anal driving at its worst imo.Yes its RWD and yes its a BMw and yes........sorry just nodded off then mate [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
Your choice,but believe me when I tell ya that a blat down some country lanes in the 147 2LTR is a joy,the 318 can't touch it for fun.
And I haven't a clue what the water collection problems are.Ive done 8k in this very same car and Ive had no probs with anything,and I thrash the blighter! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
