Alfa Romeo 146 Ti — Good accelaration, good handling, not so good brakes, especialy on wet It's an Alfa romeo after all, so you gotta take care of her otherwise problems will start. The car is very good-looking, and it a lot of fun. BMW's can be very surprised to see your rear lic. plate.

Pros: Great fun, very aggresive

Cons: Should have had a better brakes

Alfa Romeo 146 - Angelic, Or Devilish?? — 20ltr Twinspark Engine gives great perfomance, however, in the wet, the soft Italian Chassis makes it squirm from the direction you point it! Being an Alfa Romeo, they are not cheap to run, starting with the price of fuel, being a 2.0ltr, you get very low mpg (approx 15-20mpg) then repairs, Alfa's are renowned for poor reliability, and believe me, my local garage owner loves it. But apart from the hundreds of pounds I have spent on this car, I love it to bits. I purchased it used, and had a good few months where it ran beautifully, but as soon as one thing goes, others follow. Timing Belts are known to be a problem, so check them as often as you can, i found out the hard way, and got a bill for £600. but, it doesnt matter how much it costs, it is my good looking italian red sports car, and i love it.

Pros: Good looking

Cons: Poor reliability

Alfa 146 — It's just great! Great looks, drives really well, and has that very special "racing car" engine sound, when you rev it a little. This car is very overlooked, and a lot of people are not aware of the ease with which this car can be bought, maintained, stiled and driven. It's just a great car.

Pros: Appeal, performance, rare car, not too expensive

Cons: None really

Nice — A nice car, giving the person inside a push up the social latter. Dislike: The only dislike is the price for spareparts, alfa romeo is very pricey and breaks often. Likes: I loved this car a big cruiser (For a european car) just making me float through the streets of copenhagen

Pros: Brand

Cons: Price
