Buy cheap used now. 'Super' has extras you might expect in more ordinary cars these days - abs, a/c, elec seats...
Parts not cheap DIY hard even for mundane tasks such as changing headlamp bulb labour-intensive servicing expensive. LPG keeps fuel costs down.
On the road
Very sharp handling tight corners, always in touch with the road. Front w/d understeers only at extremes. Engine doesn't seem to cruise - always retains urgency - can be hard to relax...
Very powerful engine only slightly hindered by heavy body. Great acceleration seemingly no limit to this car's lust for speed.
Living with it
Minor electrical problems - clock & a/c lcd display mechanically very sound.
It's getting on in age, but still a looker, and far less common than newer Alfa's.
Large cabin, front and rear, huge boot, wooden wheel & gearknob, nice touch. Shame no cruise control.
Security and Service
Good alarm chip-in-key immobiliser effective.
Hard to find a trustworthy mechanic comfortable with Alfa's who won't cost an arm and a leg…
Problems and Ownership
Little heavy on tyres.
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
