im just curious... Whenever you guys over the pond see for instance a 166 or 156 or 147 pictures do you think wow pretty or just more that the older the better? Im just curious cause these cars never came to you...
I think you'll find a pretty wide spectrum of opinions on the newer Alfas from Alfisti here. It is a religion, after all, right?
Speaking for myself, I think the 147, 159, and Brera are simply breathtaking. They're downright gorgeous. Aesthetically, the 156 and 166 don't do much for me, but they're quirky and that's a good thing in my book. Perhaps if I spent more time with them I'd appreciate them better. The 155, on the other hand, was beautiful when it was new, and has aged very well. I'd take one in a heartbeat.
Though I have not driven any of the above mentioned Alfas, and though my daily driver is a MINI Cooper JCW, I'm not a big fan of front wheel drive, and am skeptical of the handling, or more importantly, the fun-to-drive factor of these modern Alfas. I'm very curious to drive one, and would certainly consider replacing my Mini with a Mito or the new Giulietta if we ever get them here.
