    General Motoring Discussion
    What’s the worst car you’ve ever owned? As above, what is yours. What was it. What year did you own it & what year was the car in question. I’m going to start off with mine. It was a 1994 VW Passat 2.0i, only bought because it shared the same 2.0i engine as the Golf GTi of its time. It was...
  5. Has anyone owned petrol and a diesel 159 ?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My finance is up in September and I can't really justify changing the car... ...the diesel aspect does put me off a little, so was wondering if anyone's had experience of both fuel types. If so, could you give a compare and contrast please? cheers :)

  8. Anyone on here owned a Citroen 2CV

    General Motoring Discussion
    Going to look at a 1977 2CV6 in SW France tonight. Looks good on paper but a rather eye watering 4,000 Euros asking price which seems to be quite cheap here for a good one. Hoping to be able to knock 500 Euros off if I like it.... Basket cases are 1500 Euros. Anyway, am I mad?
  9. Laaities and their (insert your choice of bodykitted vehicle owned by an infant))

    South Africa
    Just drove past a youngster (I'm not old, but this oke must have been max 18) in the underground parking, standing proudly next to a polo, with the most atrocious body kit, and a ground clearance of about 50mm, if that. He was "skeefing" me as I drove past him, so I stopped, got out, and in my...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Been doing the rounds at some car dealers looking for a good 156. Man I get the same story from every car salesman. "This car was owned by an Alfa enthusiast". Yeah right! Alfa enthusiasts dont do the first cambelt change at 110,000 Ks. They never NOT wash under the hood, so the motor is...
