Alfa in this country just has never really jived well. Italian cars in general have always been seen as cool but even if you can buy one the required maintenance always would eat you alive. When I mean required I mean bent valves required. I learned that from Fiat as timing belts at 25,000 mean 25,000 not 26,000 miles.
For what you got here and the quirks it had there were some other very good options out there. You had to really want one to buy one of these. I know someone with one. It is a nice car but again you really have to be a loyal fan to buy one.
As things move EV it will be interesting to see what happens to these brands like Alfa, Maserati and Aston. It will help them quality wise but they will lose that sound and feel that make them desirable.
