  • Done it, Bought something different!

    Just bought a Alfa 147 1.6 T.spark Lusso, its for my other half, Alicia. She hasnt seen it yet and we are picking it up tomorrow! I took it for a test drive, and to be honest, I see what the fuss is about, its not quick, quiet slow in fact. But the sound the twin spark makes at high revs is something else and its just so nice to drive! Just hope it doesnt fall apart in 2 minutes.

              Not going to any events this year, to be honest Im saving for an Alfa meself, It really has impressed me, just cant find anything in Vauxhalls newish lineup below 10k that I would be happy to change from the calibra. The Alfa is different, has style that I like, stack of kit as standard and a nice noise from the engine with out mods. So Im thinking about a 147 2.0 Lusso. I still like Vauxhalls and have an interest. Want something more comfortable, without being lowered. With the 147, it still feels connected to the road, still has feeling, the late Vauxhalls Ive driven havent felt like that. Maybe a mistake, but just gotta try it. Been loyal to Vauxhall to 8 years and 3 cars. Time for a change!
