Summary:

Italian power with a great noise!

Faults:

Rear Brakes had to be replaced. Some small stuff in the engine too.

General Comments:

The noise of the engine is great. Performance is already at low rpm very good getting very good above 4000 rpm. You feel the car has a heavy V6 engine and fwd, but the handling is OK!

Fuel consumption is quiet OK for such an engine.

Great car!

Summary:

A great getaway scorcher!

Faults:

Recently the ABS light comes on then disappears.

Replaced a few light bulbs for the rear stop lights.

General Comments:

Compared to my 911 which was stolen the Alfa is an average car. I bought it precisely because it looks fairly innocuous, but opted for the 6 cylinder version. In spite of the high mileage I still blow away those obnoxious Golf en 300 series Beemers in daily traffic.

The Bosch injection is super and the brakes are excellent..maybe a little fading.. still not bad for an Italian sedan with more than 240 k on the clocks.

Would like to try a Q4 now.

They are great cars, due to a company car (Alfa 156 1.9 JTD aka "The lorry engine") my 155 V6 will get an easier life. Nothing comes close to the Alfa V6..

Life can be good :)
