Your Forum name


Real name

Stuart Middleton




Housing Officer



Marital Status

I live with my other half. She drives an A3!

which cars do you drive and why?

Alfa 147 Selespeed Metallic Silver

Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?

Modern day Alfas only, Ive never been a fan of classic cars

What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo?

I loved the look of the 147, a beautiful car. It was a close call between the GTV and 147, I went for the more modern 147 in the end!

Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?

Obviously Im a member of Alfaowner, which I consider to be a club.

What do you like most about Alfas?

The looks, the engine note and the relative exclusivity compared to the Fords/Vauxhalls/Peugeots/BMWs of this world.

What do you like least about Alfas?

The potential for expensive repairs around every corner.

What would be your dream cars?

Honda S2000, Lotus Elise, Brera, Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder,

What car would you least like to drive?

Anything by Daewoo, KIA, Hyundai

What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?

New Spider, my other half (or Kelly Brook), driving in the country on a warm, bright day with chill out tunes on the radio/CD

Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?

Not humorous, but I took a corner far too fast and spun my MR2 roadster on a busy roundabout in the pishing down rain, ended up facing the on coming traffic, to this day I dont know how I didnt cause a serious accident.

What interests do you have outside of Alfas?

Swansea City FC, five a side football, bodybuilding, computers, women,

Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)

I have a semi photographic memory

Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?


What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?

I love the technical forums, and the general Alfa discussion forum. Im a member of various football, fitness, car and movie forums, but is by far the best in terms of layout, ease of use and friendliness. There arent any cliques! Although some people do seem to post for the sake of it to increase their post count, I find that quite annoying.

If you had 50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?

5k to my parents, 5k to my lady, 20k on the best 147GTA I could find, 5k on clothes, 2k on insurance (!) 13k on gadgets 50 LCD tv, new computer, Ipods, Hifi, you name it!
