Boom Boom?

Here is my baby. Picked it up two weeks ago. On the list are
1. Ansa Performance Exhaust (specific for this car)
2. Euro Elma H-1 Headlights
3. Alluminum triangle grille (already in the mail)
4. Borbet 16" 5x98mm 5-star euro wheels (on order)
5. A good engine detailing
6. Stiffer lowering springs 30mm

The install for the audio was done by myself over the course of a a few days, the electrical system on this thing is a bitch.

Battery is in the trunk (behind amp) for those of you wondering.

Actually the car is incredibly reliable. Consumes a bit of oil but that's common on alfas

I don't think the front end could be any uglier though, what's with the triangle.

too bad it's got a .30 drag coeficient (amazing for a 1992 car) and is capped at 148mph with the restrictor chip.....not to mention amazing handling and over 200ft/lbs torque. You are one of the many who hate the design, i dont blame you, you simply lack the capacity to comprehend the art of pinifarina....


The notoriousness of alfas being unreliable is relative. an older alfa has alot more quirks than a newer one. Thats why you see alot of older alfas with low mielage (just like ferraris). They spend one week on the road and demand one weekend at the shop. But they are worth every ounce of trouble, not to mention they are very exclusive. Who doesent have a bimmer or a porsche nowadays. An alfa will definatelly get you looks.

Here is our 1974 GTV 2000. All original 30k miles









And here is our 154 Quad thats still in brazil just waiting to be brought back up here














You begin to comprehend the obsession when you look at my arm

Just because I think your car is ass ugly doesn't mean I lack the ability to comprehend anything.

You may not lack the ability to comprehend beauty but you obviously lack the ability to take a joke, or, be sensible for that matter. I never asked for your negative critisism so for the sake of order please keep your unproductive comments to yourself next time.

If you don't want an opinion of your car then don't post 10 pictures of it

Battery is in the trunk (behind amp) for those of you wondering.












My father has a 1991 Alfa Romeo 164L. Its red and he loves it to death. Its a very fun little car. The engine has a nice growl to it. Its a ball to drive!
