Nearly bought a 'modern' Alfa convertible a couple of years ago but a few people tried to put me off the idea of buying one saying the reliability was 'suspect'..........so, went for VW Golf instead!!! Hmmmmmmmm......should have gone for the Alfa.....!!!!

Welcome to HeliTorque oldjunker!

My first car was a ford. Used to break down a lot when the engine was cold, but generally it served me well. Very Happy

Regards,

Well I finally got around to snapping few pics of my new car. Sorry for the delay but been having too much fun with it. Had it just over a month now and have just under 8000 kms on the clock.

Heli-Ops,

You have exquisite taste in cars! The Top Gear review of the new RS4 last series, had a rock climber VS RS4. Worth a look! Here you go...

Heli Ops,

Spookily, we have just come back from a sortie looking for a Silver/Grey RS4.

We found it soon enough and I'm now thinking, I know you are a long way away, but if yours isn't in the garage, give us a bell!!

Even when he's taking snaps of his car they are winners. Could be entered for a photo competition or something. Very Happy

In the background, is that your house?

Best wishes,

Little ol' me drives a Peugeot Partner minivan. Very reliable and durable, extremely practical and versatile, though with just 75 HP coming out of a 1.4 liter petrol engine it's a bit underpowered and lacks torque. Did manage to push it to 178 km/h after a 10 km run and half expected the valves to burst through the hud Very Happy. Guzzles quite a quantity of gas as well (approx. 9-10 liters in city traffic).

My next car, soon to come hopefully, will be a 95 HP Fiat Grande Punto, quite an edge in performance over the Peugeot (obvious joke intended Very Happy Very Happy ). But hey, with a consumption of only 4-6 liters in city traffic, I'm not complaining... plus it's easy to park and cheap to maintain, an important prerequisite for a student owner.

Reply to Triple Delta!

I had a Punto a few years back - one of the best cars that I have ever had. Second to my Golf!!!!

One day, I would still like to own an Alfa Spider (maybe the classic)

My mom had a Punto, the second generation. Apart from some of its minor whims (especially concerning the electric system), it was a truly remarkable machine, very robust and tolerant, with excellent performance (we used to have the 80 HP 1.2 16V). Now, she traded it in for a 95 HP 1.4 16V Grande Punto, which I'll, based on my experience so far with it, get for myself too.

Compared to the original, the manufacture of the new one is such that it seems like a REAL car manufacturer started making it Very Happy. I hear Germany has gone crazy for them, and I can attest they are really great machines, with many of the original's faults completely remedied...

When I was offered the chance of buying the Punto I said: "No way, can't stand the style, etc". But, it was a good price (and it was black, sporty) so decided to "give it a chance".

Never looked back from the day I bought it. I had no problems with the car at all. Very reliable. The only problem I had was when I "crunched" it into a wall on a very icy day, on a remote country lane!!!!! Got it repaired and it carried on as normal.

I would still recommend the Punto - even though I am now a Golf driver
