How long do you intend keeping your alfa?

Just curious. My car is 5 years old this september and I have owned it 3 years, and it is now the longest I have kept a car. I have no current intention to sell it in the near or even distant future, as there is just nothing to replace it out there at the moment.

Had my 156 since April 2007. It's wonderful.

Re: How long do you intend keeping your alfa?

The Spider has only been here since December. I still have the 147 bought in Oct 2006 (but hopefully not for much longer).

I'm hoping to keep the Spider for a very long time.

Re: How long do you intend keeping your alfa?

Had my RZ for 10 years past in January...

Had the GTV for three years now, which is how long I planned to keep it. Not entirely sure what I'll do with it, nor what I'd change it for - GT 3.2, Sportwagon GTA, S4/RS4 Avant maybe.

Had the 147 for almost two years, probably keep it for one more and then see whats what - the Junior (or whatever) should have been out for a few months by then.

The question in the thread title is different to the question in the poll.

Re: How long do you intend keeping your alfa?

I've had this 156 for less than 6 months, but I had my previous 156 for almost 2 years. I love Alfa's and they way they make you feel but there are also a lot of other good, old, cheap cars out there and I'm not going to deprive myself of them because of this 156.. So if I see something else I like I am just going to buy it, and then the 156 will have to go, if I prefer the other car I have bought.

I want a late model Porsche 944 Turbo, and also want a BMW 540i manual, the 4.4 V8 model. Would also love to have an old GTV6 fitted with a 24v V6 engine, either 2.5, 3.0 or 3.2..

Re: How long do you intend keeping your alfa?

I'm in your boat Eddie. What would I replace with?
Absolutely nothing at the moment out there.
Maybe an RS4 at some point in the future could tickle my fancy. But that'll be a few years into the future. Similarly a Maser GranSport, if the opportunity comes around again for me to own something a little less practical.

I miss voted based on that, I thought it was me reading it wrong, whatever, keep it, had it, whatever there will be another one after this one, any way so what does it really matter. Been working with them a long time can't imagine doing anything else.

What he said...although wouldn't mind a 166 Ti in the meantime.

Had my car since the 24th November 2007 and loved almost every second so far.
