Hi all,

After owning and loving a boat tail spider, a sud, a sprint and two 3.0 v6 164's I couldn't take the bills and depreciation any more. I took the sensible route and bought a Porsche 968 convertible and a VW Golf GTI. The bills and depreciation improved but the buzz of driving an Alfa gradually got the better of me, so I'm back with a 1997 metallic blue (no idea what the proper name for the colour is) widebody 155 2.0 16v twinspark :D

History looks ok and the car drives beautifully, probably paid over the odds at £1900.00 but I just fell in love with the car.

Bring on those bills :rolleyes:

Happy you are happy. :cool:

Seems to me Alfa ownership is not unlike malaria. You think it is out of your system and then years later it comes back. :lol:

This is true and it comes back without warning!. From the 1st impulse to own another Alfa to actually buying one was less than a week :eek: Hadn't really considered it seriously for the previous 4 years
