I used to have the Automobile app on my phone as it was essentially a free magazine for whenever I was waiting. I deleted it. I'm sure they have to have someone on their staff who knows something, but most of the articles were utter garbage. Between the typos, misinformation, and simply bad writing, I couldn't justify it wasting space on my phone anymore.

To me, the cars are pretty different. I slot the Alfa in between the Elise and Evora. I really like both, but the Elise is much better to drive around. The Alfa is annoying around town unless you put it in all weather mode, it constantly wants to downshift hard and spool the turbo when you just want to get to the next light, its like a child. I did very much enjoy hammering it down PCH in manual mode though, if you keep it in the power and shift manually, its not constantly trying to kill you as the turbo kicks in.

They are both cool, fun cars but I believe generally appeal to two different people.

Thumbs up Bravo! for your daughter!

Both great cars for different reasons. I just thought it was cool that there's an Elise out there being driven by a gal who has her own car blog! There's not enough women who take an interest in our passion for these cars IMHO (not that I mind hanging out with all you lovely blokes at the track and C&C).

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this.

I saw the 4C at Sector111's event. I do like it's interior.

And I am glad that companies are still building light cars.
