The Alfa Bug - probably to be continued
Firstly, great forum with some useful information. I scour it daily without making posts - largely for information and opinion. Now I find myself in the 159 section.
Anyway, about 6 months ago I bought my first Alfa, a 147 Collezione TS 1.6 in Red with the black contrast roof. It is bloody brilliant but recently I have been heavily attracted to the 159 Ti models, particularly with the twin o------o exhaust. I'm approaching 25 and I've worked quite hard to get where I am, moving far away from my home city of Liverpool to build a career without actually treating myself and spending my hard earned cash which is where the 147 came in. Handles like a dream and I couldn't care about peoples opinions on the VW Golf - I prefer the 147 and the door shutting sounds better as well even if my CD's fallout of the door every time I shut it. I prefer personality.
I'm not bored of the 147, but I want something a bit quicker - but with looks that are just as attractive and I come here looking for some owner/peoples opinions as I am actively seeking an upgrade although I'm planning not to rush right in, but rather find the right deal. I do have one rule though, I like Alfa's in red. Hope this doesn't offend anyone.
The topic is a bit broad, but maybe some things to be weary about would be helpful and some of the unknowns positives and negatives that are not visible when I research certain websites. So anyway, sorry to bore people on a topic that is probably heavily discussed, but anyone willing to share their experiences to aid my decision on 159 Ti's, I'd be most grateful for.
