First Car: Alfa Romeo 147 Collezione 1.6 TS
I joined the forum a few weeks back before I picked up the car and nearly four weeks on I thought I'd just comment on how happy I am I went with the Alfa 147 over any other car. I'll be honest, originally I was going to buy a brand new Audi A1 but at more than half the price, this 2009 Collezione was not only a bargain but a better option for me. The cabin is fantastic and I love the look of the car; people are always passing comment on it. A young lad reversed into me the second week I had it, but he paid up and the respray to the rear bumper has been completed. I was surprised that his Golf looked much worse than the Alfa after the incident.
Anyway, just a big thank you to everyone who gives Alfa a good rep as you easily swayed me in the car choice. I am currently in the process of learning about the mechanics of the car without actually doing much. If anyway would like to offer any general tips on the maintenance scedule differing to the one that is widely known, please contribute to further my knowledge of the car. For the first car I have ever bought, I think I have made a great choice; all things beings considered (insurance being the most).
