    General Motoring Discussion
    I just wanted to start this discussion, but first I would tell everybody that I'm Italian (as you can see) and I love Italy. Even if this Country has lots of bad/weird/unexpected curiosity. We have a huge history in cars. But... Italians prefer foreign cars. Expecially German ones, but they...
  2. Why the Italians don’t recognise ARUK are bunch of clowns ?

    Alfa Giulia
    Just cancelled my Giulia order and got my deposit back from the dealer after 5 months waiting without any update...Thames motors did their best to keep my happy and ARUK are as if in mission to bring Alfa sales to zero by 2020. Sad

  6. More to italians then just pizza and pasta

    Introduce Yourself
    Hey Guys Let me start off by apologising for my fair share of criticising Alfa's over the years. I never drove one due to all the "stories" of being unreliable, expensive to maintain etc and spreading the same stories.... looking back I think it might well have been Jeaslousy more than anything...

  8. Italians and Alfas

    General Alfa Discussion
    I was always curious to know, how many Alfa owners were actually Italian or of Italian decent?? And if you are, what part of Italy?? In Australia id say at least half of the Alfa driving population are of Italian blood. The inner-city suburb of Sydney known as Leichardt is known as Sydney's...

  10. Those crazy Italians and Sin City

    General Alfa Discussion
    For some reason I started thinking about when I bought my car from Italia Motori in Sydney that deal in Ferraris, Maseratis and all things Italian. The chief technician is an Italian named Mario, (funny that), and he's crazy over Alfas. He said he preferred the Alfa GT to driving Maseratis...

    Just had a morning nosing about at Harewood Hill Climb, amongst the entries was this rather fine Giulia, owned and driven pretty hard by William Le Bourgeois from Jersey. It looked extremely well prepared and was putting out about 190BHP at the fly, he set a pretty good time in the morning...

  17. Italians in latest issue of Top Gear

    General Alfa Discussion
    The latest issue has a section where they charge around the Isle of Man in various fast cars. They then decide there aren't enough Italians so they have a section where they blast around in a 500 Abarth, Maserati, Ferrari 430 Scuderia and an Alfa MiTo and 8C. Not terribly in-depth but very...
