Summary:

It's one of a kind!!

Faults:

The only problem was my fault.

The car had the oil warning light on, and still I drove for 300 Km at top speed because of the hurry. Result: a new engine.

General Comments:

It's a real Alfa!

The handling is perfect, whether it's a motorway or a mountain road.

The performance, amazing for a 1.8 litre engine. Embarrassed most Mercedes, BMW's, VW's and Audi's.

Because it was the sport version and Alfa Red, it was a head-turner wherever I went.

I can't seem to remember any complain about this car.

Recommend it to anyone!

General Comments:

This was a suprise to me. nothing was wrong ever with this car.

Since the first day until now it's just a matter of petrol and oil and that's it.

It looks great, it runs great and it is very comfortable.
