  1. Tempted to return to 164 ownership...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Looking for another 164 Cloverleaf I can't shake the idea of returning to 164 ownership. It's only been a couple of years since I last owned one but I've had three different Alfas since and as much as I like them, I've come to realise that they're just not quite what I want. I really liked my...
  2. Being tempted by the Very Dark Side

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Those of you that have read anything I have written about my Brera will know that I love my car, it ticks nearly all my boxes except one, it's diesel. I would love a V6 but the running costs are crippling, tax, and fuel consumption make it a complete non starter. If I was to push the boat out on...
  3. So tempted... again

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Well, here I am again :) I wonder if pomeo's still around? I'm so tempted by this: Alfa romeo 166 2008 | Trade Me This would be my fourth 166 and the second facelift version... and it's so rare and difficult to find, with my favourite wheels... But it's always such an awkward compromise...
  4. Tempted. Or perhaps not.

    General Alfa Discussion
    I've seen this nice GT 3.2 for sale. However, I don't know enough about GTs, much less about the 3.2 V6 engine. The ad makes me a bit dubious. After rooting around the seller purchased this car from a dealership in Cornwall. The way the seller has described it, it looks and sounds too good to...
  5. 156 selesped tempted to buy

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all I want a estate car and have found a 2ltr petrol TS for sale low miles and selespeed. I would like an auto as I drive lot in town but I have no real knowledge on this type of gearbox. It's 2007 model with 43,000 miles . Car looks good and would suit me but would to love to hear some...
  6. Half tempted to sell my G...

    Alfa Giulietta
    As the title says really, I am thinking of selling my G. I do like the car, but it does have a few annoying quirks, and I fancy going back to petrol again as the mileage I do hardly justifys a Diesel. How much do you guys think it is worth? 2.0JTDM-2 Lusso 170bhp 60 plate (december 2010)...
  7. Giulia - Super Tempted!

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi guys, I'm not an Alfa owner (yet!), and I never really looked into Alfas before, but I must admit that the Giulia has really captured my heart! From everything I've read about it, it seems to have all the right ingredients to be the perfect 4 door petrolhead's car! I currently have a BMW...
  8. tempted to part with my 147JTDm to a 159 2.4 jtdm

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    so after all the work I've done to my 147JTDm I love it.. it's quick and nibble awesome car to drive but after little car browsing I am very tempted to part with 147 to a 159 sports estate it looks nice and a bigger car would benefit me and my family especially the dogs.. what to do?
  9. Any GTA owners tempted by the new Guilia?

    Alfa GTA
    Reading through posts on other areas of this forum the new Guilia seems to have divided opinion. Just wondered what GTA owners think? Personally I think they have nailed it. If the QV is an M3 / RS4 competitor hopefully this means they will bring out a 335 / S4 competitor which logically would...
  10. Tempted by a 156 GTA SW

    Alfa GTA
    I'm currently running a GTV V6 & a 159 1750Tbi SW. Much as I like the latter, the engine note is non existent - a charge you cannot level at the GTV. The 159 is also a tad too large for my needs. It's absolutely beautiful but it's also a big car that's hard to see out of & place. I'm thinking...
  11. Tempted by a G, need a bit of advice first.

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have recently got myself a job where I have to drive a bit further every day. Not a huge mileage, but enough to make me consider fuel economy. I had a look at and a drive in a Giulietta JTDM-2 2.0 Lusso today (170bhp version) and was pretty impressed with it, but I would like to ask other...
  12. Tempted by GTV Cup

    Alfa GTA
    One going cheap and I am tempted. Should I ??? My wife would go mad but never stopped me before lol. Car number 6!! Be nice to sit next to the GTA :)
  13. Tempted by a Cloverleaf/Q2/Blackline but...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    ...do any of you with with one of the above (ie a car with 18" wheels from new) find the ride hard on poor road surfaces and that it possibly reduces the life of the already short-life suspension? I'm currently on 17" wheels, and have had one buckle once - although that was a really bad pot-hole...
  14. Tempted by a Guilietta Tct or not Tct

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, Happy new year to you all. As the title says, I am looking to pick up a 2010-2012 plate Guilietta very soon but could do with a bit of advice on weather to pick up the auto Tct or stick with a good old fashioned manual. The tct would be at the very limit of my budget as well...
  15. Tempted by Giulietta 2.0d price for cloverleaf etc

    Alfa MiTo
    Hey guys I've been swooning today over the Giulietta diesel 2.0 do people rate them? I run a mito cloverleaf at present with custom stainless steel cat back exhaust . It is etna black with 40,000 on the clock fsh etc. What would be a fair price on her I was thinking £7,850 region would be ok...
  16. tempted to buy this for the misses (147)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/380838382036?nav=WATCHING_ACTIVE Seen this on eBay looks good for the money mileage a bit high but not to bothered about that as it wont be getting a great amount of use as we normally use my car if we go anywhere this would just be for school run and if she wanted to go...

    Hi everyone Having recently written off my 2002 BMW 330CI coupe, i'm in the market for a new car. I loved the BMW, but i was thinking of replacing it anyway due to the running costs. Ive recently bought a house which needs a lot of refurbishment and the three litre pertol engine was too...
