Hello from across the Irish Sea

Hi folks,

Thought I'd say hello as I've just picked up my first Alfa Romeo.

I'm over in Northern Ireland, so a big wave to the Scottish members on the west coast I can see on a good day and even the Isle of Mann.

I've just picked up a 2003 156 1.9Jtdm Veloce (facelift). I spend very little on my cars as I always change and it's just for in and out of work, so I was on the hunt again when I came across this.

The main pull was the low miles, 84,000 and MOT's to confirm it and some decent service history. It was advertised very honestly as the bodywork isn't great, both bumpers are marked, the drivers door has bad scores and the drivers front wing has dents on it. So for £600 I took it. We'll see if the mechanical side holds up its end!

For now I'm looking at a thermostat change and few wee niggly things.

Looking forward to getting back on the forum and picking brains.

Cheers

PS the oil stain is from an old passat, not the Alfa!
