I`m driving one of the continental at present. I `m atracted to the 147
but since I live far from KL and heard a lot of "scary" stories about
maintaining an Alfa to compare with my present car, it put me in a deep
hard thinking of owning one. So what are the pros and cons to be
considered before I proceed? I think this is the best forum for me to get
the right informations.

faster than kancil la (std, kancil turbo kalah la!) hehehe...
moyuz, seriously tho, if ur looking for a reliable day-to-day car and
would really prefer a toyota except that the 147`s sexy lines caught ur
eye, i can tell u now that ur prolly better off with a toyota. most ppl
who buy alfas for looks only and are not prepared for the ownership
experience usually wind up having a hard time of it. thats like a bunny
skier heading out to the black diamond slope for the first time. u dont
blame the slope if the skier manages to get himself killed do u?
all alfas will require lots of attention and tender loving care. much
more so than toyotas. u have to be diligent about checking the oil, u
have to be "in harmony" with the car to know if she`s about the break
(like knowing if ur wife/gf is having pms on a particular day, its almost
like mind reading) and then fixing the problem before it breaks. wear and
tear parts will also require replacement more often (tho i suspect that
this is due to the way most alfistis drive their cars. toyotas would have
exploded long before.)
in exchange, she will give you a driving experience like no other. she
will talk to you when you`re at the wheel, you will feel as if the car
was made just for you, that passengers are an annoyance to be avoided.
everyday, after u park her in ur porch, u will turn back for a last look
before closing the door, just to make sure she is comfortable for the
night. and when she is sick, u will feel sick along with her. everybody
will gawk and gape at ur car and u will feel as if ur walking into a
restaurant with a supermodel at ur arm. ppl will want to be like u but
they wont dare, and that makes u different and brave.
alfa ownership is an emotional experience. r u up for it, moyuz? :)
