Hey congrats on the new bella,

I used to drive an old sprint as well and never looked back since then. Never owned a 147 but post some pictures dude. Let me know if you need advise or help and we'll keep u in the loop on the next drive.

Cheers

Super stuff. Enjoy.

Followed a lovely 159 3.2V6 in Alfa Red on the SZR yesterday. Driver didnt respond to the Alfa wave and looked pretty upset that his was not the only 3.2 in Alfa red in Dubai!

I live in Mirdif and there was a fellow who lived in Mirdif Hills apartment with a 156 GTA but he has moved as I don't see it. There is a guy with a 3.2 GT in burgundy red which is nice and a lady with a lime green 147 also very close by

The red 159 is a Ti that Gargash brought in for the Motorshow. They had it for sale for 225k but they eventually sold it for 195k

Friday I saw somebody with a black 156 on the road close to Police Academy, going towards Umm Suqeim Rd, I honked but no reaction, car was still on the side of the road, ready to enter in it.

Hey mossawi, thanks dude,, it would be a pleasure to do a drive anytime, meanwhile a contact for a garage who is professional enough to deal with alfas would be highly appreciated.

Hi Dusk,

In reality you have 2 options here in Dubai. 1- the dealer (gargash) and 2- Al Ahli Garage in Qusais. Hussein who owns it is an ex Alfa mechanic and he can save you $$$. His number is 050 5852304.

Btw, i used to drive an Alfa Sprint 1.7 back in the day. Fantastic car

Hussein has the consumables and lots of breaking spares. Came very handy when i needed a bumper :-)

I'll PM my number to you.

I'm in Cairo now and will be back Thursday

Marco, I always flash or wave but usually get nothing back. I think we need a new Alfa wave campaign.
