  • Economy

    Value

    3 out of 5 3.0

    It doesn't compare favourably with an Mx5 and replacement parts are expensive and hard to come by. You have to wait for them to be delivered from Italy each time it seems.£50 to fill the tank giving you 250-400 miles depending on your driving.

    Costs

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Again Parts are expensive, I had to pay £20 for a pair of window wipers because they needed a special clip for the window washers that are blade mounted.

  • On the road

    Driving

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Car drives very well, you stick to the road like glue seemingly not mattering how close to spinning you seem. This truly is a drivers car. However after prolonged driving, like over an hour your bum will get numb!

    Performance

    4 out of 5 4.0

    You can't fault it. Power is there all the time, if you are at 20mph or 70mph, put your foot down and the engine responds with a pleasing growl and a surge forward.

  • Living with it

    Reliability

    4 out of 5 4.0

    You hear all kinds of bad things about Italian cars, especially Alfa's but that car never failed to start ever. I broke down once on the motorway when a belt snapped.

    Just how cool can you look in an Alfa?

    Comfort

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Comfortable to drive in most of the time, I'm 6ft and there was ample if not excessive room in the cabin for me. With the roof down the breeze blew through my hair.

  • Security and Service

    Security

    4 out of 5 4.0

    No one tried to steal it, but mine cam with an immobiliser and a Toad alarm that was so loud I am sure any would be thief wouldn't want to be in the car.
