I love Alfa's, I always have. However, as a family man I needed to act sensibly over the years and a large estate was always the best option. (I also love BMW's). My wife , over the years, has driven VW's, small BMW's and a mini. Now the restrictions are off and I have just bought my third 147. My first was a new 147 bought in 2003. I loved it but I unfortunately over speced it and my wife could not manage the paddles ......
My second was a Y reg which I bought on impulse and sold 6 months later at a serious profit. I already had two cars so the sale was a sensible move.
Now I have bought a 2009 147 Ducati Corse Q2 with 34.5k miles on the clock and in superb condition. I also have a BMW 525m Touring which is a lovely family car so the Alfa is my gift to me and I am delighted. I have had the car for 3 weeks and driving it is a joy.
Happy to hear from any members who feel I might have something to offer.
