I have driven Alfa's for years, Giullietta, 33, 155, 159Ti and a GT Coupe V6.
Sold my lovely 159Ti Sportwagon last March and bought a superb low mileage GT V6 3.2. To say I was besotted with the GT would be a massive understatement. The engine was addictive
So whats the sad story? ... well 11 points on my licence due to rank stupidity on my part ... thats what... 6 points in one trip to Glasgow (two cameras) down the A90 where I know the location of all the static cameras .... then a trip to Elgin from Aberdeen and a van caught me overtaking a whole bunch of tractors and lorries... at well above the 60 limit. I was so concentrating on passing the line of traffic safely I didnt realise just how quick that 3.2V6 is...
I'm not complaining I know the speed limits, but a hard lesson to take as I now have two years and 6 months to drive without breaking any traffic laws.
So the really killer part is my insurance company wont insure me on the GT, so its being sold and I'm going to get a Fiat Doblo diesel. Some sort of self flagellation is required
so if anyone is looking for a nice GT its up on ebay at the moment. My loss could be your gain.
Be careful out there !
PS I've joined the IAM so I can learn to get pleasure from my driving without going fast.
