Waved my lovely carbonio\tan 159 2.4SW lusso off yesterday to its new home. Private sale - very painless and gone to an Alfa fan - interesting thing, I could have sold it several times over for what I thought was a pretty good price.
Its been a joy to own, a few niggles but outweighed by the simple pleasure that owning an alfa brings.
Thats 2 of 2 Alfa's i've had now (147 previously, with a soft top Saab 93SC in between) that have been excellent - and have lived up to my expectation. 'Alfa reputation is urban myth shocker' read all about it ??
For those that remember my earlier posts, the only reason I had to sell was due to impending twins (+ 1 toddler) and the fact that 3 child seats won't go anywhere near the backseat.
Picking up a new Touareg v6 diesel 250bhp at beginnning of December...on paper its faster than the 2.4SW (6.9 to 60!) and fuelly and other suggest considerably more economical. It is though, not an alfa, and I can't say I'm hugely
excited by the whole thing.
Oh well, I'll still hand around here and read up about what I'm missing, good and bad!
Better change my 'what car do you drive' page on here
