Old vs New

Pretty cool. I'd take the E28 if I had my pick.

I would take the Lotus Carlton, very rare and cool. I believe that the best modern sports sedan is the Alfa Romeo Giulia with the 2L engine and a limited slip differential, too bad it's $52,000 Canadian.

Yes, the Lotus is very tempting also but I figured the E28 was more maintainable for a fairly regular driver.

Is the cloverleaf version not available with the 2.9 engine and supercar like performance? That thing is a machine.

Alfas are lovely cars but so unreliable. Their electrics seem to be composed of bits of wet string.

The cloverleaf version is available, but it's $90,000 Canadian and according to car magazines that's the one that keeps breaking down. The 2L 4 cylinder turbo seems to be reliable and reasonably priced compared to the competition. It's too bad not many people buy these, there are barely any used ones on the market.

Yea I'm put off by thier poor build, paint quality and as mentioned, general reliability. I remember taking an old car of mine, also an Italian make, to have warranty work done, and there was a Giulietta on the forecourt just a few months old. The stone chips on the bonnet were so extreme I initially thought it was a custom large metal flake paint job. Must have been going back for a respray.
