New car for g/f. Alfa 147 Collezione

10 posts in this topic

Times are a changing grin.gif and we are going to need a bigger car than the g/fs Mini Cooper S conv.

As I have got a saloon, we thought a hatchback would be order of the day, preferably 5 door.

Having looked at a Seat Leon and BMW 1 series, she was not too enthusiastic.

We then went to the Alfa dealer and have ordered one of these little beauts.

Not the fastest hatch in the world, but looks gorgeous (the rear door handles are hidden like the Leon) and loads of kit (full leather, lowered, special alloys etc) all for £13,995k shocked.gif

Cant wait till it lands...

Lovely mate - just wish they made a quick one!

She drives like a lunatic in the Mini, so I am actually quite pleased she is getting something a bit less powerful tbh.

Well she didn't get the Alfa in the end, for one reason and another.

She got a Fiat 500 Sport (white obviously) and I am absolutely amazed at the build quality, comfort and overall design.

It really is an amazing little car.

Here you go Dave.

Its the 1.4 Sport with red leather interior, red brake/wheel pack, sport wheels and italian side stripes.

I absolutely love this car. The design and attention to detail is superb - but what has really amazed me is the build quality and refinement. It drives like a much bigger car and the seats are also really comfortable and you actually sit quite high up.

Other positives - the blue&me technology is amazing, it has a bit of a growl, uses bugger all fuel, is group 6 insurance and everyone smiles when they see it!

Resales should also be excellent as there is a 6 month waiting list now, with limited numbers for the UK.

Take one for a test drive and I guarantee you will want one.

The g'f has had 5 Mini's including 2 Cooper S convertibles and the latest Cooper S (turbo) hatch and I honestly think this is a better car in nearly every department except outright performance.

10/10 rating from me.

Whilst I appreciate Alfa build quality, fit and finish has improved over the last few years, I didn't think the shut lines on the rear doors were THAT tight! :P
