<strong>Aw shucks guys!!! Yeah it's been a lot of fun for sure (including the big flame session way back!).
I was a little upset recently that I was starting to break suspension parts because I lowered my car too much. I mean, after all the hassles of flaring the guards as well as taking off my undertray for more clearance... it's a shame... the car just wasn't built/designed to be sitting so low.
I was double upset, super upset that I couldn't overtake a single person at the track day I had a month back. The whole time on the track I was being overtaken by Lotus', Porsches, Ferarris... the lot of them, even a Honda TypeR/Mini/WRX were overtaking me. I've now seen the light! It's simple. I have always loved fast cars... I need a faster car!
And yes, Alfa has SPOILT me ROTTEN! It's nearly impossible for me to buy anything Japanese as the Alfa interior has just set a standard so high. I don't think many cars out there have interiors as great as an Alfa. Of-course the sound is going to be hard to beat too.
On top of the list (in no particular order):
Alfa Romeo 147 GTA Selespeed
BMW M3 SMG II
Porsche Boxster S Tiptronic
Porsche 911 Tiptronic
Of-course I will be back to show you pics of my car getting stripped (I am selling all my mods to the lads wink and also when I get my new car... which could still be an Alfa (although most likely not as I have to wait until March/April for the Selespeed).</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Does anyone know for sure when the 147 GTA Selespeed is due in New Zealand/Australia? I notice Alfa Romeo NZ's website already has pricing for the 147 GTA Selespeed - NZD$72,990 (Cloth), NZD$75,990 (leather).
for more details.
It will be very sad to see you go Justin!
