First of all the "155" guy has a name, use it or expect reply's on the same level of inteligence! Secondly I dont appreciate being called a clown anymore than you would appreciate being called a "lardy mid-live crisis accountant" or what not! Having an opinion does not constitute the right for you to give me a title, if you find my opinion funny then so be it...the same can be said about yours from my viewpoint.
Third, my statements are based on the subject at hand! What I drive has nothing to with my views on the subject, nor does it make me a hipocryt as your post suggest, ukoldschool. YES I know I drive a FWD Alfa, whilst complaining about FWD's, I do so because
I drive one!!! When I can afford a RWD which is to my liking I will own one. In the mean time my statement is based on the (subject!?!?) current alternatives from the Alfa stable, which do not justify the money in my views, looks or otherwise!
Is the 155 ugly?...that's subjective and also open to opinions, which Im prepared to accept. But the bottom line is, people are paying money for a car that for one in my views is far from gorgeous. Two, is made up from spare bits from the other platforms (as mentioned by another member) I assume to keep sales going until the new models hit the forcourts. Three, costs more than any of the other models with what justification? Bottom line though against an equivalent engined GT......my 155 will **** all over the "slippers and pipe" coupe on a track day (applies to the road too) and be 10 times more fun and involving to drive. Bang for buck you just cant touch my "ugly" 155, simple as.
I didnt want to say this because its getting personal, but since one of you already did, I feel well within my right to retard.....paying 20K+ for a GT gives you the right to be.....A POSER
bordering on being a mug, unfortunately not alot else
P.S. For the record Will, when you read my posts, do yourself a favour and put your reading glasses on so when you feel the urge to make statements based on what I have said, you will know what you are talking about! Where in my post did I state the word UGLY and what was it regarding? Go read it again!
