Hi all, I would be joining at some point but thought I would try the forum in my search for what I want. I can be patient(maybe I have to be) as I'm after a black RCZ R so if anyone knows of one coming up for sale give us a shout. I was going to go for a 200 but the R really ticks all the boxes for me.
Previous history: (30 years!) MG Metro, Alfa Cloverleaf Sprint, 405SRI, R19 16V, Alfa 156, 156SW, Alfa GTQ2(current)

Well being the owner of the R I can say I know what you mean, BUT I can also say, don't dismiss the other RCZ models.
I have also owned a 200 GT and that car more than exceeded my expectations.
Owners of the 156 model who have had them remapped, will also tell you that they are excellent too and can match the 200.

The story here is....
If you see one that ticks all your boxes, then don't overlook it purely because it is not the R.

Good luck with your search and hope once you find your gem, that you post on here to update us all.

If you feel like sharing more than a quick picture, then we do have meets through the year where we have a natter and drive and usually end up having a meal too.
But either way we're a friendly bunch, so ask if you need to etc.

Hi
With me it's not so much about the power as how they were engineered( or "re-engineered") for each variant. One advantage for the 200 is you can modify it a lot more to get it how you want it compared to an R which doesn't need much or anything doing to it. Asphalts are nice but keeping the paint that way would be an issue.
Whether I end with a 200 or an R I don't think there's anything else on the market that compares (I need FWD for winter).

Not for sale but love my (black) R! Highly recommended! Red one and white in auto trader atm, have to say the red is also gorgeous as a colour.

Yes that's one thing I miss with my white car, though you can still get a fab shine with the help of secret ingredient Fusso99.
It pails into the shade of the Moroccan red or the pearl black.
Do like the finish now, but hey it's nearly a year old.

I have an Asphalt. Don't let the paint put you off, it's the best bit about the car! I use the autoglym recommended products and I'm more than pleased. Car is parked outside and driven daily. Link to the autoglym care guide below.

If you snooze, you lose


Was tempted by the thought of an Asphalt and another motorbike but I have 4 bikes at the moment anyway.

So what did you reserve ?
An asphalt or the 200, or what you originally said a R.

No, I've got a black R with 36k on the clock for just under 12K
Going down to Stevenage to get it, they could have sold 4 times over with the amount of interest they've had so I didn't hang about.
Welcome to the club!
Cheers
