Since I got the car about two months ago here is what's gone wrong:
Electric window on drivers side, diagnosed as wire snapped in door, just general wear and tear, cost 25 quid!
Bulb in sidelight and fog light in passenger side (can't be bothered fixing it yet)
Alfa Badge been stolen off front of car (dam children!)
Had a chugging and flat spots in the engine. Diagnosed as valve full of water and damamged spark, again only cost 25 quid!
I love this car! It's so unusual and although its not an out and out sports car you do get the feeling that your car is just slightly better than others in its class.
The shape is beautiful and the comments you get from passers by when your washing it are always good, young lads especially like it!
The driving experience is great, The engine is noisy, but I like it that way, it makes a great growl when you drive it fast and its is quite quick.
The handling is superb, I have never one yet felt like I was not in control.
Insurance is brilliant on the car. I'm 18 and only paying 1100 quid a year fully comp which compared to other racy looking 1.6's is brilliant!
The seats are so comfy and they look great especially with the word 'junior' on them with this particular model. Has a nice chunky leather steering wheel and gear knob and it really is comfortable to drive, especially with the foot rest.
The passenger side has a stupidly large amount of room and I find that visibility in the car is excellent.
A downside to the interior is that some of the bits are poorly, made and a bit flimsy. Also the steering wheel doesn't seem to turn as far as other cars which can be a bit awkward from time to time.
Now another downside, fuel economy. Out of 10 quid I get roughly 80-90 miles which I don' see as good.
However, the driving experience more than makes up for any downsides for this car, as do the looks. Like I said before although this car may not be a proper sports car it still manages to turn heads and I love it to bits, Smashing Motor!
