I tell you what is sad >>> SAD is a number of 155s being used by our local mobile squad in full police colours being converted to diesel engines. BTW the engines coming from Toyota.
Can you think of a worse insult to an Alfa ??

i asked my mechanic about their "loud diesel noise" and he said this is normal on police cars as they have straight-through exhaust pipes, no air filter, performance chip, etc
i heard one idling the other day and it sounded somewhere in between a petrol and a diesel couldnt decide!!!
a Toyta diesel 155 is a baaaddd thoght..i'll probably have a nightmare about that this evening
