In the next few months I shall be living with my girlfriend, idealy we'll need a 4 bed house for us and our collection of sproggs.

I mentioned to her that I'd buy her a new car if work continues to go as it has done for the last few months (obviously she'll be getting an Alfa, whether she likes it or not :lol: ).
However, we'll need a people carrier/minibus for when we have all the kids at the same time. :cry:

She then said "no point getting me a car as I'll use the people carrier, and you've got the Merc :rolleyes: and the Alfa [155] already, we won't need any more cars".

My question in the title relates to the fact that, my 155 is just the first of the Alfa's I want to buy (finances permitting), and keep (GTV V6, and a 147GTA)
So. Should I tll her I intend on increasing my collection of Alfa's (admittedly over time) or just turn up with them now and again? :cheese:

And can I pull the old "well, I've worked hard, surely I deserve to treat myself???" Obviously whilst treating her to shoes or something! :confused:

159 Sportwagon and hide one of your "sproggs" in the boot or a roof box?

you get another alfa and she gets a child transporter.

Win/Win???

I found that as long as you can afford it (as far as she is concerned) then get it and beg forgiveness later.

Sounds good to me! :thumbs:

Buy them and store them at a friend's house , Go out in the 155 , drive to your friends house take whichever car thats stored for a spin and when finished , return home in the 155 ... Job done :D

You have to be honest. You must trust her to be prepared to live together.

Like that idea! :thumbs:

I have mentioned it now though. Her response "as long as the drive is big enough and I can get my car off the drive, you can buy all you like" :D:D:D:D:D

Top bird! :thumbs:

She still ain't gonna drive any of them though :tut:

I seem to have a similar wife as yours (not bothered as long as the drive isnt blocked).They are a rare breed so look after her.

I had four cars on the drive until yesterday but now only two so time to hit the classifieds again:)
