Alfa Romeo 145 Cloverleaf — although i have only owned my car a short period of time i am very pleased with it. the first thing that strikes you is the styling, far from conservative but never vulgar or distastefull just stylish, distinctive and unmistakenly italian from the sleek nose to the "bread van" tail down to the flared wings that give it its purposefull stance. once inside the quirkyness begins to show with the dash cutting away to the windscreen on the passenger side and the odd wiper stalk, quality wise is mainly good but not immune to the usual loose bits of trim and some cheap plastics. but it wouldnt matter if the seats were trimmed with dog furr and the dash was made from fossilised cow mess because this cars magic all happens when you turn the key. firing the 2.0 16v twin spark engine into life with a deep burble is an immensley satisfying experience but not compared to the raspy roar that can be heard as it hurtled towards the horizon with the uegency of a clubber running to a kebab van after a night out on the beer. on the move what stands out is the sharpness of the steering and how it just dials into the deepest parts of your soul making each turn of the wheel feel as direct as natural as breathing. running costs? that would mean thinking. you buy an alfa romeo with your heart, not your head.

Pros: performance, styling, handling

Cons: not alot

A Cool Car. Shame About The Relatives — basically a (well) reworked fiat tipo, it does have everything an alfa should have, except rwd. great handling, reasonable servicing price and a revvy twin spark engine. but if it doesn't have to be an alfa, you are better off with a fiat bravo, which is almost the same car, withouth the badge and better economy.

Pros: feels right on the road, great seats, handling, looks, ENGINE

Cons: consumption, iffy brakes, some design flaws (phase variator rattles, LMM
has a mind of its own)

Great Bargain Gti, Faster, Better Looking, Cheaper And More Exclusive Than A Golf Of This Era. — Wonderful hot hatch, great styling. Enigine of course is excellent too.

Pros: Handling, performance, looks, value, noise

Cons: Final Drive ratio means motorway cruising is a little loud and the seat position makes you feel like you are sitting on rather than in the car.

Great Car! — Beside standard italian problems with electrics, great car for little money. Excelent handling, great breaking....little leak of torque (becouse this model have weakest engine on market) but it compensates with high power on high revs...it just sounds great on > 6500 rpms :)
