I had a Peugeot 106 for 4 years before. So i had to choose a car with BETTER steering and turning capability. Many friends of mine work on the car industry and they gave me the opportunity to drive many many cars. I didnt like anything more than my Pug. No steering feedback, no fun at turning. I was looking something up to € 14.600. Didnt have many choises at that money. I ended up to the Stilo and waited months to be announced and imported to Greece. I went to see it and got dissapointed by the interior and the steering. 30 meters away was a 147 parked, looking at me, waiting for me, like we had a blind date. I approached, opened the door, got it and 20 seconds later i told to the salesman: "I LL TAKE IT. This. i cant wait for an import." I want this "showroom" 147 next week on my name. And i got it just like this. I didnt even know what torque it had.
I never dreamed i could have an Alfa Romeo, too much money for me. But i got it without calculating loan payments, without thinking anything. I was searching for a car 2 YEARS and couldnt make up my mind. I took that decision in 20 seconds.
Now i visited dealer 20 times.
My heart says Alfa, my mind (and pocket) says Daewoo Matiz... frown
