I don't think there is man. I be the same I've looked and driven lots of other cars but none seem to be as fun or interesting to drive sure there are faster and arguably better handling cars out there. But they just aren't as fun or nice to drive.

there is a cure but it comes in the form of a prancing horse or raging Bull, and seriously deep pockets are required

I go to the odd meeting. "My name's cobalt and I'm an Alfaholic".

They're not working.

There may not be a cured but it certainly is 'catching'

Would love a GTA but the tax over here is prohibitive , 1000 Euro for the 2.5 alone
