Default What Alfas have you Owned so far

Alfa 75 2 litre Tspark Limited Edition ... Rosso red .... with Veloce
bumpers front and rear ... Limited Limited? Sold that last year to another
75 owner ... car had over 100k miles and I was doing 100 miles per day ...
that was going to kill it and my wallet.

Alfa 156 2.0 Tspark with Sport pack 2 and high-level spoiler ... red again!
Still got that one. Starting to cost more now as bits wear out though.
