best car i've owned, and so very much enjoyable to drive. feels 'special' on the road.
there really isn't anything i'd rather own for 'sensible' money. full stop.
Love the way punters still comment. It's an almost every day occurance for me. I should keep a "comments book"
A 159 just doesn't cut the mustard for me (looks wise) - although I love it's justified battle cry to the faceless german dominance. I just don't want to have a 4 door
The 147/MyToe is too small.
The Brera ......... possibly
......the prodrive.....at a push. But only for the dynamics + incredible visual impact. The GM engine is depressingly soul-less (sorry!). I felt I was missing 50% of the Alfa "experience" when I took one out for a test drive.
In conclusion - I'd take Shiny's like a shot
- the 3.2, in combination with such a damn fine looking car, despite the ageing dynamics, is a total lurrrvve beast
If only I didn't have to travel so much for work
.....I'd have a Cerbera 4.5. I'm a sucker for punishment.........
Oh - and my owning experience has been absolutely peerless (perhaps I'm lucky??)
