@oldmanjoe: the gaps in talent in the women's race are so large that no meaningful conclusions can be drawn from their times.

@wakaba: and unsurprisingly the idiot who made the first post doesn't respond. Most German cars are pretty poor in terms of reliability. I'm just reading about the horror show that is the e60 BMW m5. What a pile of shit. Which is a pity because I think they are pretty cool.

@endlessblockades: I know they are back for sale now and funnily enough it's ranked number one in its class by almost all American publications. I was talking historically as they have never sold in large numbers there and weren't on sale at all since 1994. Also, YoKev should google "Porsche scored bores" for some fantastic reading on an issue which affects almost every single piece 6 cylinder engine made since the mid 00s. https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/996/366325-thinking-about-c4s-scored-bores-concern.html 3rd post down: over $25,000 of servicing in 4 years of ownership. Yeah Porsche's are just so well engineered and so reasonable to fix ????

You're American...the likelihood of you ever having seen an Alfa, not to mind even driven one is close to zero. So it's safe to say your opinion is completely irrelevant bollocks. The 156 was the only car to ever beat the e36 in head to head tests in Autocar magazine (it won plenty of other head to head tests upon its release), European car of the year 1998, awarded wards best engine 2001 for the 2.5 V6, world's first common rail diesel engine(the technology that underpins ALL modern diesel engines), awarded most beautiful car in the world 1998, won 5 straight European Touring Car titles, etc. I could go on....

@arrowheadrush: I've driven a brand new Seat Leon Cuppa R which is a Golf Gti but better suspension and more power. It did nothing for me to be honest. There's just no drama at all in them. I'd still take a 10 year old 147 GTA over even a brand new GTI.

@Rubberelli: I love the American car scene. Amazing custom cars that you will never see in Europe.

@Andy-ap: I'd agree. It's a silly line but to be fair I don't think it's to be taken seriously.

@Gassymagee: "I want the VW so I can spend less time on maintenance and ride more." Obviously not a car person if that's what you believe about VWs.

@mattwragg: as someone who has owned the 1.8 and the v6 I can't possibly agree with you. The V6 makes it better in every way. It's definitely more nose heavy so it loses the go kart like handling somewhat and it really needed the limited slip diff I fitted but it really makes the car feel much more special. As Jeremy Clarkson himself said it makes the best noise ever in the world. And it's is so much smoother and under stressed. I don't think 4 cylinders ever compare really.

It's really not. Alfa are always fun to drive with great engines and beautifully designed above all else. Things I would never ever consider a VW to prioritise. VW make dull, uninspiring and generally mechanically weak cars. Alfa's drive trains (gearbox and engine) are and always have been much stronger that VW.
