And the only Alfa I would put up with the price tag for is the Brera. I think that is a beautiful car, I really do.

Thats like saying an RS4 and M3 are not as stunning as an F430 or DB9!!N8KOW said:You doesn't look stunning, it looks horrible, where did it get the inspiration from for the silver wing mirrors hmmmmmm.

bowfer said:That's a stupid argument.
They're not even close, moneywise.
Alfa 159ti is around £25K.
RS4 and M3 are double that.
Now behave yourself and go find another £25k four door saloon that looks anything like as good as the 159Ti.
H1_8ENF said:Plus I think it's interesting that what you've moved to is a BMW, which is renouned for delivering excellent reliability and strong build quality, staggering performance in a diesel car... none of which are really offered by Alfa, offered to a lesser extent maybe - but not the same.
Twizzler said:I looked around and sat in 159s on several occasions before I ordered the A3. I thought they looked really good. Unfortunately they only look good from the front in the showroom.
Twizzler said:Once you screw the number plate to the front that wrecks the appearance completely.
H1_8ENF said:You're right, I think they look distinctly average from the back, which is why I prefer the Brera.
