Spent three minutes trying to find where Alfa Romeo was, but then found it

Good step in the right direction

Re: Alfa becoming more popular?

UK sales have been actually improving, despite the brand's sales falling in the rest of Europe.

Re: Alfa becoming more popular?

Last years UK Alfa sales were up between 30 to 40 per cent making Alfa the UK fastest growing car manufacturer (quote from Luca de Meo).

If they had the mito out already I'm sure they would be even better still!

No, but it'll never happen in that sense. At least not in the next 5 years.

I prefer the exclusitivity that we have at the moment. However, at the same time many people look down at our cars because the stories of rust from the older cars etc... This I wouldn't mind changing. I like it when people appreciate my car, not say oh it's an alfa.. has it broke down yet?

Know what I mean?

As much as I'd like to see more Alfa's out and about, I wouldn't want them become over popular

I quite like having the only alfa in our work car park

If you ask that question to Alfa themselves, you'll get one answer, if you ask it to the drivers of Alfas, you'll get a different response

Re: Alfa becoming more popular?

Alfas are quite popular in Italy but the brand is not targeted at mass sales, like Fiat.

I think Fiat's management has a 300k units per year production/sale goal, so that should still keep the marque fairly unique

to be honest, i actually like it that way. makes Alfa unique. dont want to be listed along the likes of VW, Ford, Peugeot, Renault etc.

look at the brightside...manufacturers that aren't listed:
Ferrari
Porsche
Maserati
Lamborghini
Aston Martin
... Alfa Romeo
