  1. Prospective Spider 939 Purchase

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

    Alfa Stelvio
    Hi Guys - There looks to be a lot of happy owners on the forum. I"m looking to replace my wife's 370z and HONDA CRV with a new "family motor" that is also fun to drive as the finance deals come to term in the next month or so. Stelvio looks to be an obvious option. They seem to have a 0% PCP...

    Alfa Giulia
    Ok, this may sound like a stupid question. I’m thinking of getting a Giulia Super but am worried about reports that it’s ‘difficult to get into’ My wife doesn’t like low down cars, is it as low as a mini? Cheers

    Alfa Giulia

  6. Brera 3.2 Q4 prospective buyer. Auto or Manual?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone. I must admit having a weak spot for the Brera. I'm seriously considering a 3.2 Q4. There are currently two for sale in Argentina. First car is a red 2006, manual, 17" alloys, skywindow roof. Pretty stock elsewhere. The other car is a black 2010, Automatic 18" (8C style)...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. I've been a member here for some time, getting advice for my brother's 147, but after my own car (non-alfa) was written off last week, I've been thinking of getting something more interesting & still practical, so I'm considering a 159 Sportwagon. I'd probably get a 1.9 JTDm Lusso, but I'd...

  14. Prospective Mito owner

    Introduce Yourself
    Good evening everyone, Despite owning several Fiats (current isGrande Punto 1.9 mjt) over the years and always desiring an Alfa, the circumstances have never been right to translate that into actually owning one.

  16. Prospective new AO

    Introduce Yourself
    So on relocating from California to France, I'm looking to be a new Alfa owner. In the 'States I drove Saabs: 9000, 2 9-5's and latterly, the high-performance 9-3 Viggen. Alas Saab is of course no more, but it was time for a change in any case, and Alfa just seems to be the ticket. I'm...
  17. prospective 147 owner looking for advice

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi am looking at getting my first Alfa a 147. I'm thinking lusso, either 1.6TS or 1.9JTD, prefer 3Dr but additional practicality of a having doors 3 & 4 might win out. Having had a bad experience with an absolute lemon of a Nissan service history is a priority for me especially the cam belt...
