147 JTD 8v questions

I picked up an '03 147 8v JTD with 68k on the clock yesterday and it's superb. Never owned an Alfa before but looking forward to it.

A couple of newbie questions though:

I had an 80 mile drive home from the dealers, mostly motorway, and did notice at times a fair amount of black smoke. Is this something to worry about? I think the car had been sat around for about a month.

There was also a sort of 'thrum' from the exhaust. Is this what Alfas sound like or might the exhaust be blowing?

Cheers in advance.
