Hi, I,m Alan and have just joined the Alfa fraternity having recently acquired a mint 156 2.0 JTS. I am delighted with the car so far and my only concern is what I think is a rather "long" brake pedal. The brakes themselves are excellent so perhaps this is an Alfa 156 trait. I suppose I would describe myself as a petrolhead as, in addition to my new acquisition, I also have a Ginetta G33 (for those not familiar with the marque, this is a 4.0 V8 sports car) and a Suzuki SV650 mororcycle. I am very happy to join this excellent web site.
