Hi everyone, I am having a hard time deciding between a few models around the same price.

First car I am considering is the GT, which I like for its Busso engine alone. Second car is a 159 JTS Ti which I like for its looks and awd, but the car seems heavy and the consensus seems to be that the Busso is the better V6. The final car I'm considering is the Giulietta QV because it has got quite the style, it's newer and probably more fuel efficient. I think it's important to mention that I want to be able to carry a bicycle in the car some way or another. Also interested in knowing if torque steer is an issue in the GT and Giulietta. The GT I am looking at getting has a Q2 diff.

If there are any owners of these who'd like to give their view on these cars, it would be much appreciated.

Hello Leon, what country are you in. Most of us here have 145's but some have other Alfa's. Personally I can't stand the GT because of it's long proportion, the Giulietta and 159 are two different cars, so you either want a hot hatch, or something a little bigger, I like them both, you may also have more luck with this question on alfaowner.com but ultimately the choice is yours, good luck

Guys, and sorry if my assumption here is wrong, but is this some sort of spam / marketing?

In the past couple of days we have had two new members from the USA driving Dodge cars with FirstnameSurname type usernames.
And we have also had a new member from Mumbai driving a Hyundai that asked a pretty pointless question, again with the theme of the new models.

Again, I could be wrong and apologies if this is so...


Update: Look at the signature area of HenryBraxton. Two suspicious links.

Please guys, don't fall for this.

Hi donutty, a genuine plea for education:What would be the point of it if spam, what is the poster trying to achieve?

I really don't know - but see how the original poster 'signs off' with the same 'thankyou my problem has been solved'....

Its definitely something. Just don't know what.

OK, compare the original message and the quoted message above the 'my problem is solved' bit. Notice in the quoted section there are two spammy links inserted. Haven't clicked them to see where they go... don't want to...

Oh yeh, well spotted. So I guess the intention is not for us to click the link, but for the link to not be deleted (by us/admin) , so Google search algorithms view it as not spam on a broader scale , for what ever the dastardly plan is elsewhere?

Thanks for the heads up - the reply from the OP that included the spam link has been deleted.

His latest reply was used to insert more spam links, which I've removed.
