sound idea, only M3 BMW is like painting a target on your chest in our country, it needs to be really fast to dodge the bullets:lol: driving a legacy Gt and CLio Rs200 now and at lest no one wants to steal them

Not really that bad, the fame thrower thing isn't real, but we do have a lot of hijackings and opertunistic guys who steal cars right out your yard if it's a popular model on the black market, so I tend to buy weird or unpopular cars(that's how I got into ALfas) as the insurance is a lot cheaper and the risk of being jacked is lower

Ask benzina about the 4wheel drift with the subaru wagon, then u realize that there are some things an ALfa just won't do,but I do reserve my opinion till the 4C arrives, it's making all the right noises on paper, I just hope it lives up to the hype and they get the pricing right.IF they gonna go crazy, like the tribute Ferrari fiat 500 then Im out. Also for me its about how a car corners and way less about outright drag racing bragging rights

I will by the 4C just for its looks if I have too. Pure car porn...

Ja the Abarth Tribute is bloody expensive...

The 4C is gonna be expensive. No doubt about it. But I am willing too pay for it...

What u are saying is very true, even the mediocre ALfas have always looked absolutely stunning, so if u into looks there is no substitute for the 4c, I completely agree, my problem is that a chassis that's not spot on irritates me, yep the BrZ Has a normally aspirated 144kw boxer 4cylinder, but I wil obviously first drive it to see if it's as good a chassis as the write ups claim

I also like that BRZ:thumbs: Always wanted a scooby, if they had new hatch backs here I would've gotten one instead of the GTi.

Next has to have two doors again!

Interesting to see the fastest man in SA - Sav ( cleaned up totally today in his 800 hp Beemer )- arrived at track with his New giulietta . It was parked directly behind the race car.

I have an Alfetta 159i in my mother's garage that would like to differ with you. And, have a look at this: Gtv 3.0 V6 on raceland - YouTube
The driver is alanQ4 on this forum and he has about 100 vids on youtube showing his GTV going sideways, some in 4 wheel drifts...:thumbs:
