...Remember, search first, then ask questions if you can't find what you're looking for. Good luck.
Yup, I have been; and I've sorta stalked you since you're a fellow Tennessean!
You are an Alfa guy? vintage or new stuff? I had one of the 4C's and it was a blast.
No worries on the Murci. I went Gallardo->Murci->Aventador. In increasing levels of pain. I am told the Huracan is the sweet spot between driveability and reliability.
"Increasing levels of pain", haha! That "pain" - read "potential maintenance costs", were the main thing that made it take so long shopping, and ultimately I waited too long since Murci values (especially the manuals, which I wanted) started their quick upward trend. But that V12 though! Puts it in perspective that the cost of one periodic maintenance is about the same as the cost of a new SSS!
Thanks for making me feel a tiny bit better about my lack of Lambo...
As for Alfas, I only have had one, an '87 Milano; had it since 1994. The Italian car community appeals to me; just unpretentious, good guys (um, cough, with the possible exception of some of the Ferrari tribe)... Autocrossed it a while and it was my DD. Now I'm into Audis (two 2004 A8Ls) and have done a lot of mechanical work on the two I had, and that Audi/Lambo connection was another reason I thought that an Audi-era Lambo was a good idea. Surprisingly easy to work on and many shared parts. I have the software (VCDS) and that is a necessity!
I really like what I'm seeing on this forum in regards to personalities. Well-spoken members with a sense of humor, and when someone says "I put an exhaust on it ", or "I changed the timing belts", they mean that they personally did the work, not the dealer. Looking at you, BMW and Porsche forum guys!!
I have one real dilemma, though - which IS the fastest color? Off to search, I guess!
