Just had a call from the dealer and they are sending the car down to me on wednesday.

Really looking forward to it. It ain't gonna be as fun as my 172 Cup but it will be way more comfortable which is why i'm changing (baby due in Jan).

But most of all it will have way more style.

Oh the car....

Its a 2.4 20v 55 plate 156 Lusso in dark grey.

interestingly, a couple aussie guys are thinking of buying into the clio 172. one guys has a 147GTA, and the other recently sold his 147GTA.

what do you think about that? what would you say to these guys, cos others of us are trying to convince them to stick with alfa's!

Well if they do buy a RenaultSport clio they will not be dissapointed.

The handling and feel of the car is way above any alfa I have been in or driven. On anything but a long straight road a 147GTA will not keep up and if they decide to get a 182 Trophy(best hot hatch ever IMO) nothing this side of Evos and Impreza Stis will keep up. Only probs with that car is the front shockers are £1500 per corner!!!

It is impossible to go faster for less.

My 2003 172 Cup is currently for sale for £5500. It has some mods and in the right conditions will do 0-60 in under 6 secs. Also after only 6 laps of the 'Ring I took it round in 9:51. Other people with more experience were getting into late 8s.
So I bet you can't think of a younger, cheaper and faster car can you?

good to hear it's a fun car though.
