    Value

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Buy cheap used now. 'Super' has extras you might expect in more ordinary cars these days - abs, a/c, elec seats...

    Costs

    2 out of 5 2.0

    Parts not cheap DIY hard even for mundane tasks such as changing headlamp bulb labour-intensive servicing expensive. LPG keeps fuel costs down.

    Driving

    4 out of 5 4.0

    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...

    Performance

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Very powerful engine only slightly hindered by heavy body. Great acceleration seemingly no limit to this car's lust for speed.

  • Living with it

    Reliability

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Minor electrical problems - clock & a/c lcd display mechanically very sound.

    4 out of 5 4.0

    It's getting on in age, but still a looker, and far less common than newer Alfa's.

    Comfort

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Large cabin, front and rear, huge boot, wooden wheel & gearknob, nice touch. Shame no cruise control.

  • Security and Service

    Security

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Good alarm chip-in-key immobiliser effective.

    Service

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Hard to find a trustworthy mechanic comfortable with Alfa's who won't cost an arm and a leg…
