1999 Alfa Romeo 146 ti 2.0 16v TS from UK and Ireland
High-octane bargain, highly underrated
Slight water leak from Oil Filter housing. Hose needs replacing.
Very quick when warmed up.
Power just keeps coming on at anything above 3,000 revs.
Sounds superb. Switch the stereo off and wind the window down!
Handles very well, but watch out in the wet! Ended up facing oncoming traffic on a roundabout when I lifted off the throttle halfway round!
Does tempt you to charge into corners. Keep cool!
Very comfortable cabin. Superb Sony CD system.
The thing I like most about this car is that you don't see too many around.
It looks, goes and sounds better than a Golf GTi.
It's an Alfa Romeo for goodness sake! Who wouldn't love it?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
