Re: Brazilian Feeling
You are right, unfortunately Brazil taxes the imported cars in a crazy way, just to have an idea a new Alfa 147 2.0TS is being sold in Brazil for Euro 44 thousand!!! I think this is almost the double than in Europe.
Another issue for not having too many Alfas in Brazil is that, for some mysterious reason Alfa Romeo just imports 55 cars per year. Therefore, in big cities like Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro you will find (with some difficult) some 145, 156 and a few 147 but you won't find many around. That's a shame!
Well, at least when you drive an Alfa in Brazil you got that feeling of exclusivity since everyone in the streets (even BMW and Mercedes owners) come to talk to you about your Alfa. That's very nice.
