Don't think this will replace anything in the Alfa range but hey, what the heck, it IS the American way. Big is better right? That's why they're all such fat b*****ds.

Keep left unless overtaking - Use mirrors and signals when changing lanes - Keep within the white lines - Don't tailgate

Its not exactly f**king rocket science is it?

No. Sadly those dumb ass yanks have gone down Ze German route and everything is an optional extra. Standard wheels are in fact square which can lead to a somewhat uncomfortable ride, in order to get you to spend a 1/4 of the cost of the 'car' on an 'upgrade' so the car can be driven in comfort.


As for suspension, sadly the dumb ass yanks haven't learnt from Ze Germans and as such cast iron Leaf spring suspension is the standard fayre.

Again for comfort, they are able to drag their fat revolting ignorant a**es at least into the 20th century. But only just. Want 21st century refinement? That costs LOTS more.

And unfortunately for Naan, none of the Alfaslers will be available in pink as they would not be able to open up a showroom in the deep south as it may offend some of the redneckunclefuckingniggerhatingtobaccochewing natives. Or 'retards' as we call them in the civilised world.

I'm Harvey Price and licking Windows was my idea.

No, but they have a lot of ties with Fiat group sharing engine blocks and designs and floorpans/chassis etc...

That X3 is a f**king disgrace! I mean, the stupid fugly heap is made by some Canadian parts company and then slapped with a few BMW badges. This dreadful example goes one further with the grill though...









It's like putting a Sienna Miller mask on Cheryl Fergison!

GM did own a share in Fiat about 10 years...they parted company not many years later. It would make sense where the GM blocks came from.
