      Excuse the Alpha Romero moment. Are you an Alfa guy and is that your way of striking up a dialogue? If so, I'm curious to hear about your Alfa experience.

      Congrats. I see these in traffic next to newer mid-size sedans, and I get bent out of shape about the perfect proportions of the Audis compared to modern vehicles. Also, timing belt V8 wouldn't be...

      Another option is what I do, the...
