the most annoying thing to happen to me today...

filling up with fuel and i hear what sounds like a bin being wacked with a big club, however its a crappy little sub. thats not the worse part, this sub was in a green 156 with 'light brows', massive pioneer sun visor, lexus lights and a wopping great exhaust, blacked out windows etc etc. i think he thought he was a rolling advert for halfords.

this somewhat annoyed me and i was ready to ask the guy why he thought he needed to do this to any Alfa, i did however change my mind when i realised the car was full of what looked like your typical 'pikey'. i therefore drove away and kept my lid on my anger

Re: the most annoying thing to happen to me today...

It's the 156 effect as discussed last week on here. They are an affordable sporty looking car and have moved into the 'chavs' affordable bracket now....very sad really. I fear the day it happens to 147's

It's his car, right? So he does what he likes with it, and you go about your business and worry about more important things.

Re: the most annoying thing to happen to me today...

What goes through these peoples minds???

What I really dont get is these people that buy cars and modify them to have a big exhaust, tinted windows, stupid alloys.
Why dont they just buy I car they like???
Instead of buying a crappy Citreon Saxo a weighing it down it neon lights which do nothing to enhance the car and are illegal!!!

Re: the most annoying thing to happen to me today...

Well you know they won't look after it after putting all the Halfords Racing Team stickers on the car.

Just think, their cambelt fail and it's probaby got no oil in it. They won't be driving it for long.

It's a good as dead. And it's no longer an alfa.

Sad to see, but there you go.

Re: the most annoying thing to happen to me today...

you can pick up a 156 for a grand, at this stage in its life cycle you expect boyracers to buy them, and also people looking for a run around A2B car, so expect to see plenty of abused 156's on the roads.

Re: the most annoying thing to happen to me today...

Thing is, I dunno where this passion for loud, boom-ing, massive exhausts has come from.

When I went to the British GT last year they all (excepting the viper) sounded like they had a wasp hive in the engine bay connected to the exhaust - you know, that really wound up, high revving, right on the limit whine that I think sounds awesome (hey, the 147 gets pretty close with the induction + engine sound.) Only the briefest undertone of bass.

louder = more attention. its what boyracers want, a car that screams "look at me!"

Re: the most annoying thing to happen to me today...

Yeah, fair enough - I guess those of us with any real passion for cars, and motorsport will have to continue looking on in disgust as they destroy good cars, their selfs, and put our insurance premiums up.

*sigh*

Re: the most annoying thing to happen to me today...

it seems to get the attention of underage mothers stood in bus stops drinking white lightning, their heards turn so fast you'd expect their necks to break.

So very true.

Couple of plus points though - at least they are vandalising their Alfa's and not your and they will at least keep the number of Alfa on the roads down as they will eventually crash into a bus stop while being chased by the local plod shop.

Ah just thought though they may nick your newer Alfa for spares - keep it locked up.
