Not like BMW or Porsche, just count how many you see a day and compare that to the BMW's you see.

To me Alfa is going to become the Italian BMW. They're making beautiful cars. 5 years ago, I prefered BMW, now, I don't know... Look a 166 and a 7 series !
An Alfa SUV... mhhh, Even Porsche does it, and Maserati will maybe do one.

i like Alfa a lot too, not as much as BM's though

youre right, alfa is becoming the Italian BMW. the 156 was made to steal sales from the 3-series, which it did very well.... i think people are still skeptical of Alfa Romeo however, which might hurt the sales of something like an SUV, where people will prefer to buy from a more established brand

The new Mini is the Car of the year 2003 in the USA.... (it's the topic )

The interior style of Alfa is very nice, not as nice as BMW maybe but very sporty. And the build quality is good now.

The 147 and 156 GTA are very well made, the 166 too. Again, it's not as good as BMW or Audi, but it's as Peugeot or Nissan for example.

Alfa Romeo's concept car in beautiful. I can't think of what it is called, but it is very sporty and has a decent V8.
