I will love you and leave you.

Well Im sorry to say im bowing out of the Alfa Marque for now.

Ive had a great year with my 156 Selespeed but its got a bit tired now and I can't risk the Alfa used market at the moment (in case I get the same problems i got with my 156) nor can I afford the Alfa I truly desire which is the 159. So until they come down to a price within my budget or I win the lottery im taking an alfa holiday.

I really love Alfas and my 156 has so far been the best car Ive ever driven and no matter what anyone says to me the Selespeed was the best way to drive, control over gear changes-no clutch ache. Maybe some people call this lazy but I loved it.

So for the next few years I will be driving a Lexus IS200 Sport as it is also a beautiful car.

Will still stick about tho and help anyone with Selespeed issues as Ive had a fair few.

Much Love

All the best Chris


P.S. I do`nt want the price of the 159, to drop for quite awhile.
Safe motoring.
John.

Safe driving Chris - stick around.


I would have to add the facelift 156's are pretty solid, but good luck with the Lexus.

The lexus IS is a lovely car too mind. Very different to the Alfa but none the worse for it. Enjoy it.

Re: I will love you and leave you.

Ralf S I will be back. Definately. Just not for a couple of years until the new cars are slightly more within my grasp. Will also be interesting to see just what the shiny new factory does for the new cars.

Cheers Guys.
