Thanks everyone for your replies and Alfafanatic100, I appreciate your comments etc and with a username like yours would expect you to be passionate about the brand
This is why i wanted to post on here, to get the opion of Alfas from you experts as you live with them daily (The only way you know about a cars pro's and con's is to look on the forums).
The thing for me is practicality but more importantly looks and performance. I actually think the Saab looks great and the performance of my 1.8T anyway is quite good but the dash and sound system is pants (at best)
For me anyway, the Astra was always a practicality choice but always the last resort. Happily with all your advice that has been ruled out !!
The Saab for me is still better than any German bore machine but that stereo really is pure pants. However it is great to see some previous Saab owners on here who have made the same Journey to Alfas as I am looking to do, and great to see that all of you are happy with your choices
For me the Alfa GT is head and shoulders above the other two for looks by a mile, and from what you have all said then the practicality is there and hopefully the ICE side is good too. Will defo take one for a spin and as I am already in love with the looks
then it will take a miracle to put me off now!!
Thanks all for your opinions and advice
