Nice cars Zip.   Rain? Mud is more fun. (because on this particular course, I would have been a lot faster than that 360 CS)   I did a rally cross last week-end.  It was my first.  (won't be my last.)

I bet the sti was in heaven. Love the license plate.

reviving an old thread... my new ride: It's a 2003 C32. I'm such a yuppie these days...

Nice... how did the partners react? And good choice of color, it won't show the mud as much when you go rally it against Kai.
post #335 of 367
heh, no reaction yet. nobody in my office knows what car I drive...and I'd like to keep it that way, just to be safe the color is pewter, but no way I'm racing Kai in the mud.

I saw an STi come into the city one time that was caked in mud - looked a lot like Kai's in its current state. I love it.

I have one of these for many years. It is pretty popular in Europe but I have never seen any in the states:

On Thursday I picked up a 2005 Tahoe. Today I saw an article predicting $3/gallon gas. Fun times for me.

Walter: My wife used to drive an Alfa convertible, two seater. She had to find a special mechanic. I heard a few years ago, Alfa was going to begin selling in the States, but haven't seen it occur yet. Yours is really nice. What year? I bought my first BMW in 01 and love it. I have owned nissans before -- an 81 200SX, and an 89 240SX. Each lasted a long time, so I expect the Beemer to last even longer.

Very nice car. AMG, isn't it? It's a great car I think -- somewhat of a stealth car too. Hey, it's a C-series Benz (the cheapest in the MB line-up, you can tell the cheapskates in your office if the issue comes up). 'Course it happens to go 0-60 in about 5.3 seconds. I'm fortunate to work someplace (unfortunate some would say, but I love cars) where it's unusual and is taken as odd if you *don't* drive a nice car. Driving a nice car is a sign of success, is a reward for one's hard work and long hours, can be seen as disrespectful (not to mention safety issues) of one's family, and would look out of place in front of your undoubtedly nice home. Renault78, perhaps you'll start a trend, a movement at your firm....

Kalbert, Yes, it'a an AMG. The stealth factor was a large part of my reasoning behind purchasing it: it looks just like a C 230k, the only difference is that mine has 349 horses and a whopping 332 pound-feet of torque. I love her to death.

You trying to make a martyr out of me.?.?. LOL, I wish more people shared your views. Unfortunately, I'm affraid the first thing they'll think of is, "Gee, we must pay our associates too much."

The 159 is nice, I'm thinking about buying that one.
post #345 of 367
as far as i can tell you the 159 will be much much more reliable than other Alfas, my 156 has got only "minor" issues (air conditioning not working, problems with lights) but all solved with a good mechanic... and the looks of the 159 are stunning, plus you have a completely new (not the re-badged TS-JTS) engine and chassis, it's a very good car IMHO and a "different" choice instead of the new series 3 or Audi A4... and as all the Alfa when you start driving it you never want to stop
