.... I've "defected", am a "turncoat" or "what, its not an Alfa" according to those who know me in the real world
So my reflections on the cars I've had:
In a way the best was, certainly as an all-rounder, was the '90 164 8 valve Arese twin spark with an Jan/Autodelta map.
The 3 164/166's' engines were just magnifico but the chassis couldn't keep up with them.
Of the 2 155 2.0 ts the first, which was professionally lowered even with increased offset rear wheels to clear the arches & 180 bhp map by Peter at Alwyn Kershaw, was the best handling FWD car I've ever had, full stop; until the Bast£$%d council put speed hump squares up our street.
And the last, the 156 2.4 veloce wi Gus/Alfatune map was a more recent all-rounder success. Without a doubt the best looking car I probably will ever own.
So it's replacement. Given the context for these thoughts is that I am at the £2k corner of the car parc.
When the Mk5 Golf gti came out I remember remarking that "That's the sort of car Alfa should be making" and now they are with the Guilletta. So here is the before and after.
What do you think?
Will come back home when I can afford Multi Air
