Thumbs Up I'm coming back....

...after an absence of some 14 months am soon to be an AlfaOwner again. Circumstances have changed enough that I can justify it, and have just ordered and Ex-Demo 147 JTD M-Jet in Alfa Red.

Full Spec;

147 1.9 JTD MJet Lusso
Alfa Red
5 Door
05 (03/05) -> Face Lift and 150bhp
3,800 miles Ex Demo

Can't wait, was sorely tempted by some of the 156 offers, but still needed the hatchback, fold down seats, bootspace option.

This'll be my 3rd car since parting with the 156 (2.5 V6) 14 months ago, and hopefully the last. Just hope this is less of a Friday aternoon car than the old bella was. At least she's warrantied.

A week tomorrow and I'll not be sat here typing, be giving the A66 a warm up lap

Re: I'm coming back....

It was the Alfaowner Fleece that kept me true, felt a bit of a pillock wearing that getting in and out of a Kia Sorento (Great car btw, just not an Alfa)

The lure of an Alfa Diesel was too much though, opportunity to get 40+ Mpg yet still sub 9 seconds to 60, perfect combo. Can't wait to test the engine out on the back roads near the new house, lots of long curves and a few twisty bits.
