Sorry, posted 3 replies so far and I haven't even said "hi"
So, hi. I'm not an Alfa owner yet but have said for years 'one of these days'. My only experience of Alfa ownership to-date is my grandad having owned a couple back in the 70s so I believe things might have moved on a touch (heaps preferably, lol)
I've fancied a Brera ever since first laying eyes on one, but our test drive yesterday confirmed that it wasn't meant to be yet (practicality) but a drive in the Giulietta Cloverleaf has that now topping the list of potential next car. It feels so much more 'grown up' than our current car (Pug 206 Gti 180). Don't laugh... it's been a fantastic motor, and still surprises quite a few folk, but it's seen better days with 72k miles on the clock now.
Got a test drive in a Golf Gti to come yet, but put the Golf side-by-side with the Giulietta and the Golf just look so urmmmm... bleuuuuugh, so it'd have to perform loads better. The Giulietta Cloverleaf is still a bit pricey for our budget so chances are we'll wait until there's a few decent 2nd hand ones around, or AR drop the new price with a bit of luck and another crappy automotive market over winter.
Also love my sportsbikes and currently ride a KTM RC8 which has turned out to be the best bike I've ever owned, despite not being to everybody's taste and despite depreciating in value like an Alfa
May be my last road bike to be honest... getting far too much attention from the old bill around here these days and a prison sentence becomes less appealing with age I think, lol
Anyway, looking forward to gleaming some knowledge about Alfa ownership in the 21st Century
