I used to have a Honda Civic 1.8 VTi 5 door. I bought it with 2,500 miles on the clock, ran it for 4 years to 47,500 miles and eventually part exchanged it for my GTV 3.0L V6 24V Lusso. Other than servicing (expensive) it never had a day off the road.It produced 169 bhp, hit 60 in about 8 seconds and could exceed 135 mph. On top of that it used to average 34 mpg. It may not have looked like a WRC rally car but once you got into that VTEC zone and sipped up to 8,000 rpm that did not matter. Even GTV 2L's were fair game.

Alfa make super looking cars but they cannot match the build quality of the Japanese. My GTV has had 16 days off the road since I got it last year and they are all electrical related problems. Alfa cannot even stop an airbag light coming on regulary.

P.S. Despite all the niggles, I still prefer my GTV.
