  1. 147 GTA v Golf R32

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Pish Gear on Channel 5 held a head to head between GTA and R32. although VBH said R32 was better in almost every department she could not recommend it as this was the first time she'd driven around Silverstone and been bored. She would go for the GTA as it had soul. So watch out for R32s as the...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Guys, Sorry to mention this, but I can't help to notice that I see a LOT of VW Golf's IV driving around with Xenons! I didn't know these were available on Golf's or am I mistaken?
  6. Are Golf TDI fast, or is it just me?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Today, while getting on the motorway, I was passed by a Golf TDI (all letters in red). The car was behind me at the red light (so we both started from 0) and was really faster than me when I was at about 140-150 km/h (what's the speed of 6500 rpm in 4th gear?). How powerful are these TDI...

    Competition? Nah! The Red one should be OK, but I think VW is more for the ugly yellow one :D Looks a bit like the Stilo, doesn't it? Oops that's the new A3 wink
  10. Golf GTi 180 or Honda Civic Type R

    General Alfa Discussion
    A friend of mine recently sold his 156. Shame I know, but he wanted something more powerful then the 1.6 engine (as do I). He now has a budget of 30,000 Euro, and insists on buying new. He would like a hot hatch but is not willing to go Alfa again as 30,000 will get you only the basic 2litre...

    Just been reading (in the comic) AutoExpress about the upcoming new Focus RS and the new 'Super' Golf. Ford 2.0 Turbo 212bhp 0-60 in 6.4 and handles like a dream. VW 3.2 V6 241bhp 0-60 in 6.6 and refined Alfa 147 3.2 V6 0-60 in 6.5? and ...? That should be some group test when it occurs. Will...

  13. Alfa 147 vs. Golf GTi

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am interested in purchasing either the Alfa 147 or the VW Golf GTi. I have read various reviews about the 147, and it sounds like a great car. I have also test driven the 5-door 2.0L selespeed model and it was great. What I am worried about is the various problems that people have...
