Boy smitten by Spyder
At the age of 12, I was smitten by a Spyder (when the word 'Milano' still appeard on the badge). Since then, I have longed to own an Alfa and have decided that 2010 is the year I buy one. So, what should I go for?
New? Or a year or two old?
A 159 or a GT?
Main dealer or indie specialist?
For the past ten years, I have driven used BMWs serviced by an independent specialist. The cars are everything they're cracked-up to be - fast, reliable, supremely competant. But they're not Alfas.
I live in Cardiff, I'm a middle-aged journalist, oh and I'm quite tall, about 6'2". So if there are any Alfas that turn out to be uncomfortable for tall drivers, I'll need to know that too.
So, what are your experiences?
What would you recommend?
What would you warn me against?
