Unfortunately only available overseas.
Makes me more impatient until Alfa comes stateside in 2007 (hopefully).

This will be my future car in the meantime:

The front is nice, but it's kinda conservative considering that pretty much most, if not all Alfas share the same front end. The rear hatch is very cool looking, in a aggressive, avante-guarde kinda way. It remeinds me a bit of the Mazda 3 and the Infinita FX, only it's even better.

I do like the Alfa interiors a lot, but TBH, I think the busy look would get tiresome after a few months. I much rather prefer the more conservative and simplistic, yet subtly pleasing look of VW/Audi interiors instead in the long run.

I love alfa! I know NOTHING about them other than they kick BMW ass in that one touring car series. Still their design inside and out is beautiful. HUGE :thumbup:

NICE DRESS, MISS

In the '70, a boy's two happiest days were the day he bought his Alfa and the day he sold his Alfa.

Alfa Romeo's were not very dependable. My friends was in the shop on a constant basis right after he purchased it new. Thing rode like crap too and the stick shift came out of the center console. Really weird :weirdo:

Those were the Alfas from the 70's and 80's.
The current models overseas, which we don't here yet, have pretty good quality and reliability -- The detailing and materials I saw on a Alfa when I was in Europe last was simply beautiful. The dash had beautifully stitched leather (something you don't see on a car that's less than $100,000), and the chrome exterior door handles are like jewelery.
They have come a long way since the last time they were on our shores.
