Yesterday I spent a few hours looking at some European car related websites and mainly paying attention to the European automaker. In my life I had the opportunity to drive a few cars available only in Europe. One of the first ones I drove was the Open Rekord Sport edition, it belonged to an Opel engineer that modded the hack of that car. Fast, sporty and quite good looking for that time.

Then I moved onto to another Opel model, the quite popular Vectra, which was one of their top cars back then. Once again, fast, better handling and reasonable priced. After this, I went a few steps down and drove for a bit a Fiat Punto. I know, I know, a little tiny car, but fun to drive in busy cities. And without getting in more details, I will just enumerate the other European cars I managed to drive: Renault Laguna, Renault Megane, Daewoo, Ford Escort, Audi A4, Peugeot 206 and 306, VW Golf 4 diesel. There are probably a few more, but I simply can't remember all of them. But one of them remained in my heart: Alfa Romeo 156. 

If you recall, last week we announced that BMW will be supporting the U.S launch of Alfa Romeo's models in 2010. In the mean time, I will share with you the two cars that I would absolutely love to import here if possible.

Remember, I'm trying to stay within reasonable limits and "ignore" the exotic expensive European cars.

So, I shared my ideal European car with you, now, let's hear about your favorite one. Feel free to leave a comment with links to photos and I will update the article with your name and your preference.
