  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    In the 30 odd years my wife and I have been together, she's always had the "sporty" car and I've had the practical one. When the mid-life crisis kicked in and I got the Brera, she had a Polo GT - the one with a 130HP diesel lump - so when she went to test drive the Brera, I "warned her" that it...

    Ive recently changed job locations and worked out its cheaper and quicker to drive to work than get public transport. This means I have now been driving to work everyday in my Alfa where as before it was only used on the weekends pottering round the city as a shopping trolley. Now I drive...

  8. Introduce Yourself
    After being an anonymous viewer of the forum for so long, guilt got the better of me and I thought it about time I contributed! I have had three Alfa's - the first back in the late 70's an Alfetta 1.8. Then followed a spell in company cars then back to the fold in 2004 with a GT JTD (probably...
