My 2Ps worth
Again, I was after an Alfa for ages, been a member for years on here until I got one a few months ago, nearly bought a Delta EVO2 once and should have done!
I had just sold an Impreza turbo and was using our old trusty Marea 2.4TD estate until I found another car
I had a small crash in the fiat and was written off, needed a car asap and the Alfa was nearest to us that was estate and had roof bars and a towbar (should we need it)
On getting the car (2.0TS SW) and driving off I was utterly disappointed, I thought there was somethiong wrong with it, it just didn't move on accelerating, I have since come to the conclusion that its due to the fact that its the first car i've had for over ten years that didnt have a turbo and jesus did I know it
Had the car a few months, done about 8k in it and its not too bad could do with a turbo
Not a patch on my year 2000 Impreza and that had done over double the miles
I dont rate the Alfa as a drivers car at all, maybe its mine but its too soft, my old fiat had better steering feel, I get the feeling its on the Marea floorpan (maybe it is ?) and that puts me off a bit although I liked the fiat a lot
The Alfa has never let me down, never broke but one day i'll get another Impreza or at least something with a turbo.
Interior is nice though.
