why Alfa? good question! Simple though, i drive an Alfa cause she's gorgeous, she sounds absolutley stunning, goes like sh*t off a shovel, & (with regards the 166) she's a rare beast. And finally i don't give a monkeys that basically everyone i talk to about owning one thinks i'm mad, because i know that of the Alfas I've owned, & the Italian cars in specific, they've all been bullet proof.
But, & here is the really interesting bit, even if they cost me a fortune in constant repairs, i'd still buy one!
