Thanks for the welcome. Sitting in an "English" pub about 500 yards from the water, watching jet ski's, swimmers, etc and drinking a Scottish beer instead of the usual Guinness, and watching our two small boys create havoc, I mentioned to my wife (again) that one of the hobbies and passions I enjoyed in life was my Alfa's. As if she didn't know. Then I mentioned I was looking at getting another...(think before you decide..she said given impulse cost me a bit last few times but then one was was a disintegrating 75; the other a Lancia Thema V6 which actually is a lovely old girl, just has eccentric electrics, ). Anyway, you guys need to visit this part of the world to see how we race, socialise and drink red wine here... Yes I've been UK Europe USA (and Pacific Islands) many times but never fitted in Alfa-related things...but will address that next time. Meanwhile, next trip is to China in about a month...interesting to see if Alfa is in the traffic there; I know Audi, Renault, VW and Citroen madce their mark...
Enjoy your driving... Incidentally, would welcome any feedback fro owners of 159 sportswagons which I am considering at present.
