Which car should I get?

My friends...

Seeing as how most of you have already heard me moaning on about this subject I will bullet point it for those who haven't:

* Stupidly sold my 156 V6
* Regret doing it
* Require a new car
* Not sure which to go for
* Really would prefer an Alfa
* But failing that would settle for something less in the mean time just to tide me over

Now, I have made up a short list of cars that interest me, and want you lot to tell me which you'd opt for. Sensible does not come into it,

This is mainly a 'Value and Fun for Money' poll. So any help and advice and suggestions etc is appreciated.

Cheers!
Darren

Re: Which car should I get?

The Fiat Coop 20v Turbo is the only one on that list I think I would be bothered driving even if you gave me the whole lot for free..

Re: Which car should I get?

MY Alfa is in Crawley! And also...not mine anymore...

Dammit! I want another 1998 156 V6! This time I want an SP3 with the side skirts, the big spoiler, the 16" wheels, red leather interior, leather bound wheel and gear stick, carbon dash etc. FSH and recent cam belt change etc etc etc...

I want one and I want it bad!!!

Re: Which car should I get?

I'd say Capri, but if you were to get a 2.0i then it would have been cobbled together using a sierra engine etc. But if you're used to a V6 then the only capri to get would be a v6 variant!

But its best if you bought another alfa.

Re: Which car should I get?

If you get another Alfa, and fancy a change, why not go for a 166?

If a non-Alfa then I voted for the VW Golf VR6, but the Scirocco Scala, Ford Probe, and Fiat Coupe I like too.

Re: Which car should I get?

If it has to be one off your list get the Fiat Coupe - at least it has style. Avoid the (rectal) probe at all costs!

As you have driven the V6 not a lot else will be the same though!

Fiat coupe, the others do not compare, although I do like the VR6 corrado to a degree it looks old fashioned in comparison.

Re: Which car should I get?

Voted for fiat coupe but Alfa would be a better option. As you already had 156, what about GTV? Looking on you list, practicality doesn’t seem to be a problem.

Good luck.
By the way, none of the cars on that list come even close to the Porsche 944 in terms of driving experience.

Re: Which car should I get?

A 156 is a really fun driving experience. In a different way to the 944, but just as fun. 944 is probably faster though, especially around corners.
