Because it'd be unfair for the other marques

I see. But it's already unfair on them, they're not Alfa

Re: Best brand of the given brands...

As brands go, it would have to be BMW - instantly recognisable to a very large section of the population, and a name that implies prestige, quality and image. The brand practically sells itself (to people more concerned about designer labels than a proper car... )

However, I refuse to vote for it on principle.

Re: Best brand of the given brands...

No Point... Version 2 of this poll will not include the last option... so you have to choose one of the none Alfa Romeo models

(the last option is a bug )

Re: Best brand of the given brands...

I put down Audi, solid reliable cars with subtle(ish) understated styling. People have been given out about the new noses but I really like them. Very distinctive. I'd get either another Alfa an Audi or a Saab for my next car. Didn't choose Saab on this poll cos the new 93 just doesn't look good. They're becoming too mainstream, BRING BACK THE HATCHBACKS.

Hey Fraser, Pasi's too chicken to that to himself, so he needs you to shoot him with a shotgun on his leg. That's why he's winding you up.

Re: Best brand of the given brands...

Is he winding me up? Never noticed Anyway, Portugal's a bit far to fire a shotgun at, I guess I'll have to get some of the ex-brit crims on the Algarve to do the job for me.

I suppose if I'm going to own up, it would be a Lancia, which is out of the question coz they don't sell them here anymore. I've had an Audi which was dull, dull, dull. The only other one on the list that's vaguely interesting is the Saab. Beemer's are good cars but I couldn't live with the image they have here
