I'm probably tempting fate here

And the engine will fall out tomorrow but

The GT has done a year..... Well its annual equivalent mileage over a 4 month period..... With nothing breaking, falling off or needing replacing!!!

Well the clutch has been done but I knew it needed that when I bought it so I'm not counting that as it lasted nearly 20k after purchase. I can't believe it, an alfa making a sensible commuting choice

Unfortunately suspension, turbo hose, EGR and brakes have been replaced/repaired over the 20 or so months I have had my GT. I have only done about 12k since buying it. It along with my Spider will want the belts doing around January too.
S'good now though and for a diesel it's a cracker

Oh **** I forgot, the A/C is knackered and needs a new expensive pipe bit. The rear Goodyear's are like fifty pence pieces. Had to replace the front tyres too.
**** these things are expensive

I've had my GT just over three years and the only thing that's gone wrong was an alternator replaced under warranty in the first month. All the money I've spent has been either on maintenance (going in for my second belt change tomorrow) or upgrades (wheels, tyres, springs, shocks, exhaust, remap, terraclean). No failures in three MOTs, not even one advisary. It has been as reliable as any car I've owned (which before this included Porsche 928, Lexus GS300, Merc E320, Merc E280). I hope it continues!

ETA: And it's more than nine years old!
