Yo people. I'm posting to say hi as i'm hoping to be a future Alfa owner.
Always been into my Italian cars, thanks to my dad was a mechanic for an independent FIAT garage, and have driven or been driven in loads of different ones, yet for various (and justifiable
) reasons i've never owned one myself.
Well i've decided that i want an Alfa as my first plunge into the Italian car scene. It has to be an Alfa. But there were so many Alfa's i wanted as child and teen, i'm Googling too much
145, 155, 156, 164, 166?! Choice is endless.
I'm hoping through this and internet i can do enough research for the pros and cons. Although as it stands a 145 2.0 Cloverleaf or 1.8/2.0 156 with sp3, if i'm being really picky, are the ones i'll really go for, once i've sold a couple of my current cars. But ultimately i'll have to get a good feeling from any car i see.
My only real question is about the 164. I've seen an ad for a 3.0 24v Super in auto. Are they worth it? I've never heard of a sound Alfa auto box, and i can find much about them. What are they worth?
