  1. Tough choice: 146ti or Alfasud Sprint Veloce?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi guys!!! I'm on a constant debate... I love mi 146ti, it's immaculate, mint condition.

    I have a tough choice to make, don't want to have to but money restraints are getting tighter and somethings got to give and sadly the misses and myself slowy are pointing towards the 166 going. Now the options are to either sell her or break her for parts! :( :cry: Selling her I don't think I...
