Hi all ,
Been an Alfa owner last 25 years and now have two , a red 145 2.0 , Jan 2000 , and a 1972 pagoda yellow giulia spider which needs a bit of attention ( low compression in 2 cylinders ) . Others in the past included an Alfasud Sprint 1.5 , Alfasud ti , Giulietta 1.6 Alfetta 2.0 (1986 ) .Not interested in the 147 2.0 because its too slow , smaller inside than the 145 and somehow less sporty . Still, thats my view and I'm sticking to it ! Look at these cars above and the trend is towards more conventional engineering , in the past this used to separate Alfa from its competitors . Sadly this won't change in a world dominated by giant corporations ( yes Alfa is a tiny part of one ).
Last thought , what makes the new 159 better than its obvious rivals ? Very little in terms of engineering . DISCUSS
Cheers , Paul .
