    General Motoring Discussion
    I bought a GTV in 2005 the reg is S8 GTV. It finally died last month and has been scrapped. I retained the reg with a thought to selling it on. However I did sort of like the thought of holding on to it so I have transferred it onto the 3.0 Spider - which, of course, is not a GTV. For sure I...

    Alfa MiTo
    Right I'm really ahead of myself here, given that we don't even get the Mito until 2pm tomorrow. I've so far had another family member and a friend asking loads of questions about our impending new car as they are in the market for a car themselves within the next few months. I've actually...
