I second OperationAlfa's commendation on your taste in Alfas!
I too am a first-time Alfa owner, though as I have stated, I've driven quite a few. I completely agree, driving the 3.2 imparts a driving pleasure not commensurate with the cost of purchase. It's a ridiculous bargain at the moment; a situation that in my view will change over time.
Is your car modified in any way? Mine is stock, though I am told it may have been remapped, since the power output seems on the high side. I don't think it even has an LSD; something I may feel sufficiently worried to add.
In the meantime, I am willing to spend the extra time to maintain it over a more modern (dull, efficient) vehicle, just to hear that engine.... enjoy your car, I hope it continues to entertain.
