Yeah, I used QuickShareIt for most of the pics, but it had a massive digi-fart a few months ago, and every pic uploaded before then is gone.

There are some pics of the 8C on my ImageShack page, along with pics of the MiTo and of some of my older Alfas.

Two pics from a few days ago in Balocco (Alfa Romeo test track).

Notice the Alfa 159 in the second pic <3

Edit, just to clarify: I mean this kind of 159, not the modern one:

Car's now a year old, done about 8500 km, very happy with it. Wouldn't trade it for any other car. Had a little drive behind a 458 Italia a while ago... mine not only looks much better, but also sounds a lot better than the 458.

Two pics from this summer:

seriously dude, that car is one of the most beautiful cars made. the 458 is one of the best looking fezza's for a while, but its definately not a patch on the 8C.

what the hell do you do for a living!!!? im guessing in some way intertwined with finance? CEO or business owner or real estate man are the only things that match finance.

i just read fools gold by G. Tett and that guy who wrote liars poker, wrote the big short... all i will say is jesus h christ!

Judging by the pics inside Alfa Romeo's test track and the two Alfas and the picture he posted of himself in the 'post a pic of yourself' thread wearing an 'Alfa' name tag, I'd say he's probably a high ranking exec at Alfa Romeo.

OP, your car is absolutely beautiful. Awesome photos!

You know when people talk about italian car quirkiness?

Here's an example. :mrgreen:

"Hmm, I should check the oil level. Here's the dipstick."

"Let's take it out and... hmm, this doesn't look right"

Good thing it bends a bit.

Yes, the dipstick catches in the strut brace :D
