Re: Alfa Romeo 147 VS Volkswagen Golf
Its all down to your personal preference, and what you want out of a car. Here is one way of looking at it.
My brother drives a lot of miles and has a company Audi A4 1.9 TDI. He needs it to get him from one place to another on the motorway at 90mph. It's comfy, cheap to run, its got some nice gadgets and toys to keep him occupied, and it won't break down. It is a very good car because it does its job very well.
I only drive a few miles to work, and its only a few miles to see my girlfriend. I really enjoy driving and relish a good journey in the GTV. I often take a longer route to get to where I'm going because I'm enjoying the drive. I purposefully avoid motorways and drive on A roads. I often overtake cars for the enjoyment of the accelleration, speed and noise that comes with it. It doesn't matter that there are 31 other cars in the way and passing 2 or 3 won't get me there any quicker. I'm not trying to get there quicker. For me the GTV is a brilliant car because it gets me where I want to go, in style, and with a big smile on my face.
To sum up, before a long drive my brother looks at his Audi and thinks "I'm going to get to my destination efficiently, in comfort, and with the minimum of fuss". Before I go on a long drive I look at my GTV and think "I'm going to enjoy this".
