If you smoked a Z3 1.9 in your Alfa 3.0, I'm not that impressed. My 98 Z3 1.9 was a great handling car but with under 140HP and even less torque, there wasn't much out there that couldn't smoke it. As for the 2.5, 2.8, 3.0 and M roadsters, I think we both know that, unless the driver you faced was a complete jackass, there is absolutely no way you would beat him. All of the above cars post sub-7 0-60's. If I recall correctly, the Milano is probably closer to eight seconds. Even you must know that your victory is not consistent with what is commonly known about the performance characteristics of the Z3. Otherwise, you wouldn't be bragging. I mean, I don't post on the Dodge Caravan board every time I smoke a family of four.

P.S. No offense, I love italian cars- I've even owned a couple of Alfas, Lancias and a Fiat-
But Manny, think about it, I bet you I could smoke a Ferrari if he wasn't looking and once, my 2.5 got its ass kicked by a Dodge Neon because of my unwillingness to drop the hammer. Right now, there is a guy in a dodge neon bragging just like you and the funny thing is- neither of you have a clue as to why you won.
