Bought from a dodgy bloke in Luton the Alfa was never going to be a good car. I'd always wanted to own an Alfa as every petrol head should however sadly it lived up to their reputation for build quality. We only owned it for 3 months however during that time it managed to spend around a month in the garage. It was also our first (and only) car with a semi-automatic gearbox. In theory this should have been great however in reality it was awful.
