Thumbs Up One years ownership.

Its been a year since having my first Alfa Romeo and I must say its been a pure pleasure owning and driving the car.

I have replaced the cloth interior with a tan interior.
Replaced the alloys from a 156 to 916 3ltr V6 ones.
New tyres all round.
Full service.
Full valet inside the car.
Replaced the maf and lambda sensors.
Replaced the fuse box and replaced the electric ariel with a proper working one.
Replaced front both fogs and drivers side headlight.
Re-sprayed the front bumper back to its original rosso red colour.
Replaced front shocks.
Replaced the thermostat and radiator.

and probably replaced a few other very minor things.

The next coming year I'll replace the exhaust with a stainless steel exhaust and hopefully find a engine undertray and a few other minor things.

Its been great

Drive it like you stole it...

I think this forum (and the now defunct plus Alfa Owners Club meets also helps to make a great ownership experience.
I've only had my 916 about 9 years but intend to keep it and keep improving it for several more.
