Re: which one?

I voted for the Sprint, but I'm feeling a bit sorry for the 33 S1. I had a P4 and loved it, especially the fact that it didn't rust, but I was put off by the Bosch electrics. Give me carbs any day!

As for the Sprint, the Alfasud name was dropped when the plastic bumpered models came out (1983?), even though the 'Sud carried on for a year or so after that. The Sprint didn't get the 33 bits (outboard front disks, rear drums and tubular rear axle) until around 1986.

As for the "chrome" bumpers - they are stainless steel so longevity is assured - probably easier to bash back into shape after a minor oops too!

When I was looking for my Sprint, I was only interested in the metal bumpered models as I wanted a classic. At the moment the plastic bumpered models just look old, retro prehaps, but not yet a classic. Their time will come!
