New GTV owner
This is my first Alfa. I've been driving classic cars for some time now and recently sold my Triumph Spitfire to buy a modern classic that had a bit more comfort.
My virgin Alfa experience was in my friends Spider. The grin that stretched across my face was the starting point for my triumph adultry. 4 seats were necessary (for occasional use moving children around) so GTV seemed best option and I duly picked up my 1997 GTV 3.0 v6 in November 2007.
Despite all my jeering friends, I'm positive its the right choice. Even though the front caliper's just gone and it'll cost about £400 to put it right my GTV only makes me smile more every day. I mean, you'd buy the love of your life a £400 ring any day wouldn't you? so why not look after your GTV in the same way.
I also gave her some loving treatment from Sound Gallery in High Wycombe who did a wonderful job on installing new speakers in the front doors. I also put a 12" sub in the boot and took out the rear speakers (the tweeters in the back speakers are far too close to your head) Needless to say the spare had to come out and a tube of tyre wotsit went in instead. I mean, the boots too small to use anyway so you might as well fill it with speaker.
So hello everyone & especially anyone in the Oxfordshire area.
