Alfas are not marketed well in this country. That is a shame because even though the g may be flawed, the 159 is not. Especially when one considers the german products.
Exactly. Alfas are not marketed properly, not enough spent on advertising.couple that with GENERALLY crappy service from dealers and the very limited choice of models, how can u expect to achieve high sales targets?Alfas are not marketed well in this country.

Ian, I agreed with you on the QV as GTi and GTA as R, that's why I am happy with my GQV, purely because I know my car is much better than the GTi (yes, this is very subjective)!For a "qv" model the g is imoressive in my books. The qv usually was a "sporty" car and a gta was an all out racer. So the qv in terms of performance is right where it should be. A gti competitor. A gta should be in the s3/golf R range where performance is concearned. And yes you can do a lot worse at the price.
Alfa will never let it make max power so soon after development. They will keep bringing out updates and with it increased power. Makes no sense to bring it out in max tune straight away.How about that 223kw engine everybody has been talking about? That can work in a fwd car as Ford proved with the focus RS.
Come now Ian.. :cheese:No was just running with Guili's quote on the g being flawed compared to the germans. I don't own one so won't comment and if I did own one, mine woukd not be flawed because I'd love it till it was perfect... :thumbs: don't mean to be peeing on anyone's parade, deffinitely not the intention.
Only because you are who you are, a very large scary man :lol:Their handling of my turbo replacement was also top notch. I had 3 courtesy cars as they needed the vehicles to rotate in order to havre them available for customers to view (they were demos after all) but everything was arranged very smoothly and on each visit I was updated on progress on my car without someone first having to find my car's job card and telling me what I could have read from it myself. That makes it more personal, more professional, and a good experience. The turbo was also fixed once, properly, and all bits including banjo joints, intercooler and oil cooler were replaced first time and oil was changed.
