Re: Alfa Romeo 90 Super
The 90 super is very similar to the normal 90 but it has bigger wheels and different instruments (the same ones as the 2.5 75)
As for the head gaskets, alfa had an unofficial recall in the 80's on the 2.5 v6's, customers were never formally informed of this and as a result many were not done, you will find that if it was serviced at an alfa dealership it had probably had it done.
Electrical gremlins they all have em but some guys have managed to exorcise them
My impressions of the 90 are
1. almost as good as a 75
2. nearly as fun to drive as a 75
3. no where near as much fun to drive as a sud (they don't rev to 8k)
4. sounds way better than a 2l alfa
5. Have that real gangster appeal that the 75 doesn't have, something that the only other alfa that has it is an alfetta
My Mechanic has one as a courtesy car and two of his guys have one (as well as other alfas) and i think they are quite nice.
In case your interested he has a standard one (non super) and i personally wouldn't mind one as it is a rather sweet car
