not the 159, but i used to have a 156. The aircon simply cannot make it lor. But the styling, vroom and drive are fun.

well just like what the top gear guys always say... you need to own an Alfa to be a true petrolhead.

I am thinking of a used, current-model spider. Anyone has any comments, experience with this model? I wonder if the Alfas are more reliable these days?

:) i really like the spider and was eye-ing it for a long time...

i went to test drive many many times too! *LOL*

it's quite a nice drive - definitely very unique on SG roads... However, i think the drive is not as powerful as an SLK..

The hood is also quite slow for a soft top - i think the Z4 softtop closes in like 12 seconds while the spider takes closer to like 20 seconds? (i'm not exactly sure how long - since it's been almost a year since i last looked at it)

however, it's definitely a nice car to have - one to surely turn heads. :) :)

I love the spider also

and its seems that its not very popular in spore, as the resale price in Sgcarmart is very low.

even with the high COE, most of the resale car price goes up but not Alfa's

I like Alfas for their shape and drive. But whenever I see an Alfa, it reminds me of a yellow fruit...... :D

my last ride was an alfa 159, its so pretty and sexy and you wouldnt want to mod anything to tarnish her. looks expensive but its much much more cheaper than what many thought.

Unker also like Ah Fa Lo Men!

My 1st was a 1972 Alfa Romeo 1300GT Junior - Got cheak by Celica 1600ST

Bought a 1973 Celica 1600ST - got cheak by 1972 Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV

TL replaced my 1973 Celica with a 2nd Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV :)

Some of U younger guys must drive Alfas before they become extinct like dinosaurs :)

Unker, I don't have so much time to keep going to workshop. Why I stay away from this brand, I have seen pretty new cars, just finish servicing at AD and car cannot start after a few days when they send for paint work touch up at my friends paint shop. Faint ah.

But yes, it really looks chio and "special" because getting lesser and lesser on the road......

When I had the Alfas, every weekend Saturday at the mechanic.

He was my friend & my teacher and I helped at his workshop.

Most Alfa owners would have know him - Lim Joo Seng Workshop (Actual name Lim See Ann)

He was an Alfa Romeo mechanic at that time under AD City Motors.

He left and opened up a shop opposite them in Sin Ming.

Many years later he moved to Eunos and last year he moved to Kaki Bukit.

Those times consider "analog" days no ecu remapping.

U play with your weber, solex or dellorto twin caburettors - fuel jets, air jets, fuel float level.

Racing cams, close ratio gear box, extractors.

U are right - very tiring to keep the car running at it's best but that was the fun of it.......hahahaha!!!!! :)

Dedicated to old Alfa lovers :)

Nice watch bro.

Stiill can't find a decent MB watch, IMHO, the MB watches available are overpriced and not worth keeping.....

My other ride's a (generally problem free) 159. Not quite vintage but try Alfa Sportivo. They seem to have Alfas spanning the decades gracing their frontage.

Used to have a 33 with the 1.5 boxer.. miss the twin carb, but yea old alfas are rust magnets.. was tempted to get an old twin-cam GT but...

 

Definitely thumbs up for sportivo, went there a few times to get stuff for my 147 (which was super reliable and fun), they're pretty good with aftermarket mods. I also frequented Alfa City a few doors down for my regular servicing cos I liked to talk cars with the guys there. They had quite a few old cars in the process of getting restored there too. Even saw an immaculate HF Delta Integrale. I'd put valuable bits of my anatomy on the market for one of those..
