They are not vandals, they are artists!

Nice one, the black really suits it. Now all it needs is some black tint and 18" turbine alloys

I think AR Ireland have been on a big push to get back into the corporate market.

I think it might actually be Profondo Blue, not so easy to tell in some pics though.

The Multiair is a class engine. Just make sure you put the correct oil into it or it will go mad. Savage cars very good handlers as I found out on the corkscrew with Iluv164V6's car.

I just love the idea of a Turbo Alfa.
its company car so Tractmotors will be doing all the work on it. hire purchase kinda thing. i might try to buy it when it comes up for sale in 3 years.

There are still 4 remaining Dealers, 3 in Dublin & 1 in Waterford, at least there were up to a month or 2 ago. They are all still listed on the web site which seems to be kept fairly well up to date.

The west/midlands & Cork could really do with a few Dealers though
