Wow — Performance, it pulls through all the gears hard, and the brakes, wow, stop me on a pin head (aftermarket fitted) EGR and DPF can be problematic but is easly rectified with a remap. i have to say, except for the brera and spider, this has to be the best looking car on the road today! fuel costs are average, with 45mpg average, repair are very costly if you go to dealer but most can be done by a competent person with the aid of FiatECUScan programme and neccesary ELM267 cable. very fun to drive, full of character, always brings a smile to my face when i sit in it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the torque and the looks

Cons: stone chips, i hate them!

If You Like The Look Of One You Need To Own One! — performance: excellent considering the car is big and a tad heavy 155bhp could do with 30 more maybe.brakes handling all superb. Build Quality: very good considering reputation AR have had in past, nothing has fallen off inside all electrics work well . Appearance: ! what is there to say except WOW!! stunning looks, gorgeous lines makes you want to keep looking back as you walk away. Cost of ownership: 40mpg easily achievable, servicing around £250 every 15Kmls, recommend an Alfa warranty if buying used.Fun factor: big grin motoring!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: looks handling power style classy smooth

Cons: too stylish for lovers of german blandmobiles!

Pure Alfa, Love It Or Hate It. — passionate about this car, maybe not enough hp in comparison with how heavy it is. But a real head-turner, looks unlike any other car in its class. Great to drive, really sticks to the road, great torque, and great noise (for a diesel). I have to recommend it to everyone, and I am an Alfaholic.

Pros: Unlike any other mid-power 4-door car you'll ever drive

Cons: Because you like extremely expensive or extremely practical cars

Alfa Romeo 159 - 1.9 Jtdm 120 Hp — My second Alfa Romeo after my 147, which I had to sell because I needed more space. Excellent looks, fine interior, nice equipment. The engine is alright, fuel-efficient, but if I could afford it, I wouldn't mind a bit more power. The handling is quite impressive. It has never had to go to the garage apart from the regular oil changes and normal stuff. As most Alfas, it is a driver's car, so it lacks a bit of space for passengers at the back, which does not bother me too much because my kid is still young. If I had to buy it again, I would without any hesitation.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Its great looks

Cons: ???

Awsome — Its brilliant. Its very comfortable and is asthetically pleasing. However you have to be careful when driving in torrential rainfall because a) it gets muddy b) the engine muffles slightly after. On the whole, one of the best cars I have ever driven.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Beaultiful and comfortable

Cons: You attract to many girls with this car

My 159 — The best car ever. Handling is perfect, love to drive corners. Build quality is very good, far way better than 156. 150hp diesel engine is really good, but could have few hps more.Appearance is really awesome, people on the streets are taking a look all the time.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: handling, appearance

Cons: nothing yet :)

Exterior Styling — I bought this car in 2005 with a hair over 100,000 miles on the clock. The photo shows the car as it was when I first bought. It was a nice looking car in good condition, and the Volvo reliability reputation was a clincher for the sale. Well, things went downhill and fast.....

Pros: build qulity

Cons: fun factor

The Italian Family — You can't be a true petrolhead until you owned an Alfa. Petrol or diesel makes it brilliant. Interior is much better than the 156. Not too costly to own either. A fun car but definitely a car for family guys. But there are several pitfalls with it. The Selesspeed automatic is as good as running with crutches. The V6 is a natural to veer right or left depending on your steering and the suspension will be a blur on very rough roads.

Pros: Diesel engines are brilliant, stunning looks and interior, reasonable cost compared to some of the Europeans

Cons: Annoying Selesspeed automatic, V6 is a bit heavy and torque steer heaven, some of the ride comfort is lost on rougher roads
