Keep or sell?

I have from this week a company car and and now have the decision to make to keep it or sell my car. Its not something I want to do. The company car is a ford mondeo which is an excellent ride but boring as hell. What do you think ?????????????

If it means you're going to stop collating useful threads about Alfas and start making ones about the Mondeo, pleeease keep the 159.

In a similar position, trying to keep it as long as possible, the other question is how much do you think you will use it?

As a mod on this forum you're evidently a huge Alfa fan, so if you did get rid of the 159 I'm sure you'd have to get another Alfa for high days and holidays.
Even if it's something cheap.
Good GTVs can be had for a few grand...

Do the maths:

Can you get a reasonable price for it compared to the depreciation,
tax & insurance you'll have to pay over the next 3 years?

By the time the lease on the Mundaneo is over (3 years?)
the extra money you'll have from ditching the 159 now could be
put towards the apocryphal new Alfa, (Especially if you could
negotiate a car allowance instead of the company car.)

Also company car driving is so much less hassle.
3 years of not giving a **** about the car is good for the blood pressure.
And the new Alfa will be even more enjoyable too.
