  1. Should I buy a Mito for my girlfriend???

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, I'm new to the forum, but not to Alfa. I have had 2 164's and currently drive a 166 as my weekend car (!). My ladyfriend drives a 2011 Micra (ummm no comment), but it is due to go back at the end of the month. She wants something different, but it has to be reliable as it will be...
  2. Girlfriend want a 147 or GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My Girlfriend is following me in the alfa Virus. She is wanting a 147 or GT for her 2nd car (Her first and current is a Polo VW :cheese:) She is looking at a facelifted 147 with a nice 1.6TS or a GT 1.8TS. Can you guys give me some tips to look at from both cars? What are the worst parts and...
  3. Bought the girlfriend a 147 ;)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A chance came up for me to buy a 147 off a chap at work. I knew my girlfriend had always liked them so I thought this would be a good buy. 124k miles with a good history, 1.6 Lusso. She loves it, a great car for the money. :)
  4. Finally convinced the girlfriend

    Alfa MiTo
    My girlfriend has warmed towards a mito. She currently has a C2 1.4 sx and wants something quicker and loves the mito looks and styling. With your help what is the top mito model or if that's to expensive the next one down. Budget will be around 7.5 - 8k obviously used. Thanks
  5. Girlfriend couldnt tell the difference between the 8C and my GTV

    General Alfa Discussion
    Girlfriend not being an expert on cars or Alfas in general was watching Top Gear and Clarkson reviewing the 8C and I said to her "Do you like the new Alfa ?" and she said "Yea I love it ! it looks like the back of your car (GTV) and the front of a Ferrari" I said thats interesting I guess they...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Dear All, Just lost £50 quid to my better half who bet that my 156 wouldn't make it to Christmas without breaking down... I so love this car - it's been an absolute dream the whole time I've owned it, over every single one of the 75 miles that I've done in two weeks before overheating and...
  9. Does your wife/ girlfriend ever drive your Alfa?

    South Africa
    My wife asked me to use the Junior this morning (she seems to like it more since she's come back and there's a radio installed). Strange request, but I relented because I'm insured and because I've always encouraged her to drive it (even though I didn't actually mean it;)). So I had to take her...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Yesterday I became the very proud owner of a 99 GTV 2.0TS. Been looking for one of these for ages, even taken a couple for a test drive but I never quite put my hand in my pocket. Until yesterday. I’m blown away by the performance of this car, it’s truly truly amazing….I spent most of...
  15. Girlfriend Intervention

    General Alfa Discussion
    Had a blast out last night and came up behind a Subaru Impreza something or other between Todmorden and Rochdale, there are some fantastic sweeping uphill sections over the Pennine hills and I knew straight away when his passenger turned around to have a look that it was GAME ON. We both got...

  18. My Bella and my girlfriend (a philosophical question)

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I'm confronted with the most unlikely Alfa 166 problem one could think of. Please everyone sit down for this horrific reading and hold on to your chairs. Yes my girlfriend of 3 months hates my Bella ???? :eek: She says it's got a ugly backend and she then didn't like the front, and now...
  19. Girlfriend hit a pothole, Supersport died

    General Alfa Discussion
    My girlfriend hit a pot hole on Friday which, as you can see wasn't your average rut in the road. I'm so annoyed as the wheels on the car were mint but this rim has actually cracked as well as deforming. Any idea where I can get a cheap replacement Supersport alloy. I have been offered a rim...
  20. Do I need a new Girlfriend

    General Alfa Discussion
    I need some advice. I went to Tescos with my other half. When we were walking back to the car (my 147) I looked round and she was trying to get into a 307. I asked her what she was doing and she said that she thought it was mine. I pointed out that it was a completely different car and she...
