Ride/handling is terrific, almost Lotus like. Flows with the road instead of trying to beat it into submission.

Huge amount of love for both Alfa's, old and new.

Congrats guys, they are both amazing looking cars that would appear on my list of wants.

Really wish I'd done more than just look at importing South African 105 coupe's 10-15 years back!

Hey, I bought an Alfa engine.. does that count?

Also bought a new 21 reg Dacia Duster this week. Seems like you get a lot of car for the money. Not seen it yet as it is getting delivered to the house early next week, never actually driven one, never been in one on the move either but 999cc of turbocharged fun should be different. :blackeye

My problem has always been that I hold on to cars too much. Could have sold the VX and Elise and bought a 308 gtb or added a loan and bought a 348 or even stretched to a 355 at the time, passed on Exige S1 and 340r advertised on here over the years, can’t afford any of those things now ;)

Tell me about it, I can add a 964 Carrera RS to the list which at the bottom of the market would have been an epic increase in price. Ended up going for the S1 Elise 111S instead.

Hindsight as they say is a fantastic thing :)

Just in case any of the S.Elises want to join the Alfa club:

Looks lovely but think I would be on the sofa for a year if I bought it.
