Been an alfa owner for almost 10 years now and hope to be one forever.
I've owned a 1.9 diesel 156 for 3 years, a 2.4 diesel 159 for 6 and recently bought a TS GTV.
I can't imagine going back to another make of car after driving these amazing cars. Sure they all have their little (in some cases, not so little) quirks and problems but that's a small price to pay for driving in style.
Anyway...it's about time I joined a forum where I can meet and share my appreciation, enthusiasm and love of these cars with other owners.
