want back in an Alfa

Hello All,

Had a couple of Alfa's - a 1991 33 ie, loved it, chopped it in for a Gof GTi ( it was 1995 ! ), the alfa was sweet, the golf rattled and the tailgate developed rust!

Bought a new mini in 2001 so bought a 145 1.8ts (1999) to save its mileage.. loved it, didnt use it for a year and all it needed was a battery, great car, just never failed. Then sold it and took an A3 as company car - 1 years into it and 11 months to go on its lease - but the good news - took a director to see the GT and Brera - cant fit in a Brera - well not one with the glass roof - but seeing all the black GT's caught directors eye and there is plenty of room in them. Director thinks I should be in an Alfa, far more character.

Salesman was great (Autoworld Sheffield ) real enthusiast, knowledgeable and not pushy. Once clear not looking to buy in near future, he said he had seen a pic of an updated GT online, new front and rear lights - been searching for the pic but with no luck. Any advice?

Cant wait to back behind the wheel of an Alfa again!
Cheers, millermobile
