Alfa 147



I'm new here so be gentle with me!

I started my Alfa addiction with a 1987 Sprint which had been in the family from new - Lovely sounding car and great fun. Moved to a new 1.6 147 Lusso in 2003 which, whilst beautiful to look at, has never really had the emotional tug on me that the Sprint had? Just doesn't feel very involving to drive.... mind you, it also has many benefits - Comfortable, quiet, modern etc - Miss the Sprint and hope one day to own another
Having usual niggling faults with 147 Re Squeaking, creaking suspension; Broken wiper linkage and rotting back box (will search forum for clues!)
Also, for my sins, I run a Ducati Monster s4 Blimmin' Italians!

Once again, Greetings!

Hello and welcome to AO Andy

I know what you mean, the Sprint's are little gems. Totally different driving experiance between it and the 147. The 147 does have the creature comforts though. Cars these days are different today than what they were twenty years ago, guess the car market has changed and moved on

Have you got any pics of your Sprint?
