Re: never seen one of these before
it really is horses for courses isn't it? i love my alfa, but it's no family car and, even with a 16v, there are a lot of cars on the road that can blow it away or beat it around a track. it's the driving experience that makes it special.
i like it because it punts around well in traffic and transforms when you rev the thing out.
if we had them over here i'd love a fiat multipla as our family car - drove one in rome and it was fantastic. it was that car that gave me a new appreciation of turbo diesel engines. at the moment we're looking to buy a camry wagon (get, i do own a cardigan) as our family car. driving those things makes me enjoy the alfa even more.
