Default I got a new Alfa!





I had a 1999 AP1 and an AP2 S2000 for over 15 years, not concurrently. I had to get rid of the AP2 because of an engine issues in 2015 and had to make a quick decision and bought an Infiniti Q50. I have missed the S ever since. It is the most fun car that I have ever had. I finally got another fun car. It is an Alfa Romeo Giulia TI Sport. This is a fabulous car. Like the S2000 I can't stop looking at it. The platform is amazing and the car handles so well with the performance package and the staggered wheels. It reminds me so much of the S. here are some pics.

Love the red interior in it,

not gona lie, this is the best looking 4 door sedan on the market right now, dare I say it looks better than the F80 M3,

if it came in a 6 MT I would most definitely pick one up,

at least they should have made the quadriplegia model the 6mt as an option or something.

congrats on her!

Thanks! The gear box in the S2k is so good that I have been ruined forever. The transmission in the giulia is really fast in manual mode. It is a lot of fun but not s2k fun. The Alfa only weighs 3500 lbs and it is so tight. I was in love at first drive.

Another Giulia owner here too:


I love mine... but, the TC/SC intrusion sucks, especially since you can't turn it off.

Big Alfa here right here. If the Q was out when I bought our Jag XE I would've bought the Alfa instead. Alfa line up is better than the Maserati portfolio IMO.

Congratulations. Nice interior color. I have taken one for a test drive and really liked it.

Excellent color combination. That's my favorite S2000 color combo as well.
