  2. Surprised at how little my phase 3 2.0 is worth

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I thought that the phase 3 prices were going up a bit now, but evidently not. Alfa Romeo GTV 2.0 JTS Lusso 2dr If a 40,000 mile GTV in good condition is only worth £3,000, my 98,000 mile GTV will be worth £2,000 at best. Still, it cost me £4,000 4½ years ago with 53,000 on the clock, so it is...
  3. Latest knock, surprised at culprit...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Haven't had any issues since replacing all the suspension and have been loving every minute. Imagine my horror when a knock/clunk started recently over uneven roads, all sorts of horrors flashed through my mind but fear not, the culprit was the passenger seatbelt clasp knocking against the B...
  4. Very Surprised!!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Afternoon All, Having had 2 years of Alfa free motoring I'm looking at the Cloverleaf. Went to my dealer in Nottingham who took me out in a lovely black one. Having read many reviews I was prepared for rattles, bad quality, bumpy ride, offset wheel and pedals.. How wrong of me to trust the...
  5. Depreciation and Giulietta.. you may be surprised

    Alfa Giulietta
    Here's something that grew out of a pub conversation, but when I actually worked it out, it surprised me. Actually, it surprised me so much that I did it for a few models to be sure, but... An Alfa Giulietta makes as much financial sense to own as a VW Golf. You might think I'm insane, but...
  6. Surprised

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I drove my Brera for the first time today in what must be close to two months and it started first time. Felt dead weird after driving our X3 for months, going from imperious driving position to sat on the floor. Good fun though. Went to hand car wash and as the place was dead they gave it a...
  7. V6 mpg - pleasantly surprised

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Since buying the car late last year I have only done local journeys so never checked the mpg. Last weekend I had to get down to Heathrow so decided to take the GTV and allow her to stretch her legs. Brimmed before I left and brimmed when I got back so I could get a true mpg figure. Journey...
  8. Surprised Customer

    General Alfa Discussion
    Just thought I'd post a conversation I had with a customer tonight. I'm a Stock Controller for Tesco and I had to walk over to one of my colleagues tonight to get a loaf reduced for someone. As I walked over this guy said "Seeing your a woman, does that flower look wilted?" Now I'm one of the...
  9. Pleasanty surprised today.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've had my GTV for 4 months now (near enough) and although it's my day-to-day car it's only really had short journeys (20 miles or so between stops) up to now. Today I decided to shoot off to southend (90ish miles each way with faffing about) and the GTV really surprised me. Even though my...

  11. I'm a bit surprised ...

    General Alfa Discussion
    ... at the number of people on here who think that gay means the same as girly. In these enlightened times I would have thought that we all knew the difference rather than still carrying such an outdated and eroneous view.

    General Motoring Discussion

    Outran from rolling start on slip road: A Mini Cooper S A Honda Accord Type R Caught on a bend: A Seat Leon Cupra Kept up with: Same Cupra on the straight. Surprised me. Hope it surprised them even more:D
  14. Surprised by a Kia

    General Motoring Discussion
    Had a drive in the new Kia Cee'd and I have to say I was impressed. It was the 113 bhp diesel LS model and had the usual toys but I was impressed with the pick-up of the diesel engine and how smooth and refined it was. Ok it isn't a performance car by any stretch of the imagination but went well...
  15. surprised about alfa dealers being expensive

    General Alfa Discussion
    I have only joined around 2 days ago, and have noticed that everyone regularly comments on how expensive Alfa Dealers are. My personal experience is that they are very very reasonable. Is it because they are cheaper in Australia? For example I just had my 3 litre 166 serviced at 80000kms and...
  16. Surprised Lancer Evo owner!...

    Alfa GTA
    On my way to work this monring (about 5AM), I noticed a grey Lancer Evo IX behind me with low suspension & big muffler. Once the lane opened up from one to 2 lanes, he pulled up slowly beside me and gunned his engine a few times. I don't think he knew what a GTA was, because he didn't seem to be...
  17. quite surprised at this

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    looking through a review of the 1.6 147 the reviewer said "A testament to the baby Alfa's roadholding prowess is that it posted an identical laptime around our handling circuit as the much more powerful but understeer-afflicted Alfa 156 2,5 V6". i dont know how big the test circuit is but that...
