I have tractor GT it goes well does 40 to the gallon is a bit noisy so I am happy enough with it. I also have 3 spiders a ph1, ph2 and ph 3 whilst the first 2 feel faster but they arnt they all drink a bit of oil but not a lot. The JTS feels the most refined economical and quickest. I have read about the problems but as yet not experienced them My previous 156 2.0 litre TS Selespeed was a great car but always leaked oil and burned it. I think most Alfas have problems but then again so do all the cars I work on.
