With this month's edition of the magazine, Top Gear have added a Giulia to their long term fleet, but this time around have gone for the 'everyman' version (their words !) - ie a Super 2.0 in MC Blue.

Hiya, first Alfa for me, it’s a £100 X plate 156 2.0 TSpark, metallic blue with a blue leather interior.

Hope to one...
15 years after having to sell my original gtv (a company car that cost £20k at the time), I've finally replaced it.

Well we widened the drive last year but still it wasn't enough :rolleyes:

Following my redundancy, Mrs Disgusted insists that I reduce the fleet (she's worried about money, but she doesn't know about my secret accounts!).
So far, I've got rid of the offspring's Punto (to one of the offspring)
