Alfa Romeo needs a break
« on: May 12, 2018, 11:21:11 PM »
Hi all,

I have not visited the forum for a while due to the distractions of North Korea and Syria.
Not meaning to be 'challenging' but why don't people have anything to discuss about the Giulia within the forum of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club of Australia?
Seems bizarre to me, considering FCA answered our prayers - RWD, not shit, actually very good.
Is it simply due to the fact that not much goes wrong with these cars (so, not many 'please help' posts), or because not even an Alfisti would buy a current generation, Alfa Romeo?

Is Alfa Romeo dead?

Just asking.

Maybe there are no posts on Giulias because everyone is too busy out enjoying them?  ;)

Might be a bit early for a Giulia " Barn Find Story" or a Giulia ashtray restoration project.

Is Alfa dead
There have been many generations of Alfisti over the 100 + years of Alfas existence each time the company had a generational change the previous generation said "The last of the true Alfa Romeos"
It was said in the fifties with mass production then in the seventies when the 105 was replaced by the Alfetta and the Sud plant opened. Then in the eighties the F.I.A.T. take over, that for me was the end of the true Alfas, There is a generation that like the front drive Fiats variants I have one and its not a patch on a real Alfa. The Giulia is part of the F.I.A.T group. I do acknowledge that a faction in the FIAT empire has finally woken to the fact that the real Alfas of the past were stand out cars and different, with a level of performance and engineering that was class leading the QV Giulia meets that benchmark lets just hope the next generation get to drive Alfas with the essence of the real Alfas of the past.
