Alfa Romeo 159
Nothing brand new. We've seen it before.
But I just wanted to take another look at what we're missing in the US. Because GM and Fiat couldn't get their acts together.
So what we have instead, is the new 3 series... This new Alfa looks so much better. They could have been the new Audi in the US.
Remember when the 1st A4 came out? Their reputation (over here) was crap. Because of that 60 minute show.
So they came out with a great car, for far less money than BMW and Mercedes.
They are now almost as expensive as these other guys.
Alfa could now have that position in the US market.
BMW execs should send a big fat gift basket to the Fiat/GM morons who couldn't agree on bringing Alfa cars over here...
