Hello all,

I am a current owner of a 1991 Toyota Celica GT, and very soon I'm looking at changing car, since my Celica is on a Dutch plate (I'm a Dutch guy, but recently moved to Surrey). I keep getting tempted by Alfa 156s and 147s (and 8Cs, but those are slightly out of my budget :cry: ). Now, I'm used to Toyota reliability, so should I? :confused: Do recent Alfas still have those infamous electrical gremlins?

welcome to AO dude...

a well maintained Alfa is no more unreliable than any other car...especially the newer ones....just make sure when you looking at one that it has a full service history, preferably by a main dealer or reputable indie...and that it has had a cambelt and tensioner change every 36k or 3 years, whichever is sooner....keys are expensive to get cut, so make sure it has both sets ...

nothing will put a smile on ur face like an Alfa does

happy hunting


:)

Don't know about that, Celica GT4s and Lotus Elises do that as well. ;)
But there's nothing quite like an Alfa smile ;)

Its great to own an alfa or two:D . I'd call it an addiction, once you get started there's no end. Welcome to the site. Enjoy:)

lynnb is soooooo right. 3 months on and I still grin when I get in my 147. :D

No electrical gremlins with my car (51 2002 plate) to date - touch wood.

Doh. I've done it now!
