I know the feeling coming back to Alfa.
Late last summer I sold my red Spider 1750 1970 after 10+ years of owner ship. My daily driver was a beige Fiat Bravo II 1,4 TB 2008 which I was very happy with. A month later I fled I missed something - red and Alfa. I went on the internet and found an auto trader web.
As it happened I found a red Giulietta 1,4 TB 2011, looking brand new all services stamped in the service book. A deal was struck a few days later. Less than a week later my wife and I set off to Italy for a week in the mountains - and the Giu went fault less on the round trip of about 2000 miles. Later (November) a round trip to Berlin and just to-day we've come back from a prolonged week-end in the second largest city in Denmark, Aarhus.
In all we've done 6000+ miles in the 8 months without any troubles.
