How's that. all kidding aside, us older guys (I'm 57) probably envy you in many ways, and I'm sorry if I came down alittle heavy. If you ever get east (NY City), I'd like to buy you a drink (oh that's right, not for a couple of years yet). just kidding, but I really do enjoy the banter and your taste in cars (Alfas) demonstrates wisdom beyond your years. In my case it took the classic mid-life crisis (divorce and turing 40) so you've got 20+ years more than me to enjoy Alfas.

I Probably took that a little too hard, but I should be used to a lot of the board condemning what I do...Makes me want to sell all my alfas and go back to the honda accord side of life, but I really dont want to do that, but sometimes, its just not worth it. Believe it or not, the honda crowd that I've delt with seem to have been a lot less harsh on me. Thanks for the apology and I probably overreacted...Just kinda stressed that I have to sell the gtv6 and some other issues that Ben was so kindly to point out, though I think he is our ticket leader
...But the gtv6 was a little more than I could handle, okay a lot more..but I had fun with it, learning about it, it being my 1st alfa. I hope to someday come back to that and relive the 3.0gtv6 conv, but right now, the 164 is just simply more practical and reliable and comfortable. Okay, I'm rambling...OH! okay, digital vs. analog readouts...For my eyes, they are focused more to the digital side. I like things to be precise and read them precisely! I mean, would you use an analog voltage meter for everything on your alfa? Its not a generalized thing, I think it just depends on the person and what appeals to them more. For me, its digital, for you, its analog...okay, im out!
