    100% agree with sub posting with regards to conti.

    If one is looking for a workhorse car that's cheap to maintain and keeps on running and running like those duracell ad, it's Nissan Sunny. :P Forget about the rattles and other noises, it's the cheapness and reliability that I'm talking about. :P

    :D you can always drive a beat-up conti and park it smack rite in front of the hotel...and nobody will blink an eye....try parking a mod-up iswara wif rm10k modification underneath the bonnet,another rm25k for the ICE,another rm7k for the leather interior and the works...ppl stare at you like the car is simply not worth it to be parked there...my iswara is more expensive than my bimmer that's a fact but the bimmer gives me confidence......errr...not that i have all the mods..just an example aahhh :rolleyes:

    hehe chick magnet alright, but hey, no matter whichever you have, whether locals, jdm or euros, as long as it looks super good, do expect some lovely chicas by the driver's side. hehe seen it and it's pretty much so true.

    hoi johnson, that's what i thought too in the first place, but then hey babe, reality check haha, all of us are from outer space. especially you, the person who has the extra ability to tweek any simple things into something more complicated. hehe.

    sixtythree, hmmm what can i say? that is one of the few things that yo've always heard every people on the streets say. actually, it's pretty much untrue, to some extent. basically, when you get a used alfa or fiat or any other cars, be sure to check everything related to its life. that is, its service frequency and also parts changed. and be sure the seller is someone who takes good car of their alfas, therefore join the www.italiaauto.com to learn more about alfa and not get swindled by garages. hehe.

    well to be very honest, to me Alfa is a total diff concept and character car. befpre this, i own Fiat Punto, E36, Accord, Waja and now this Alfa. Jpn cars is more towards comfort riding. where as Euro cars is more to taming a beast. hahaha, non of the Conti cars i've owned be4 is super power except the E6 i TC it. other than that all more to stock standard.

    Alfa 146 there is boxer and TS version. well alot of plp always said if wan to get, get TS version coz less leceh but i'm agreed partially. leceh was in the sense of boxer engine is alittle bit more demanding thn TS version which regular service is important. other than that, i dun see any others parts of boxer engine version is lacking to compare with TS version.

    this car is more stiff and harsh. really need to spend some effort to learn about the car and control it. i guess ur main worries is those maintenance. well the only thing is lacking out to compare with Jap cars is availability of experince mech around. if u r staying in KL, there is no sweat unless u stay at some other states which hardly can find 1 expert mech to service ur car. other than that, parts price is more or the less same as others. for example, 1 proton kompressor cost u around MR600 and for Alfa maybe around RM800. even the timing belt set include bearing only cost around RM300+.
