Hi, I just joined the forum and am posting this Hello.
My first Alfa was a 156 2.0 petrol. My second and current is the 156 Veloce with the 2.4JTDM. About to go for the 159 2.4JTDM TI. Spent some time in the showroom last week and it sold itself to me! I still get ragged about the Alfa reliability, I just tell people its and engineers car, you get to fix things. With both my Alfa's neither of them ever left me stranded. I ran on 3 cylinders occasionaly, when the plug tunnels filled with water on the petrol engine. Then I ran slow with the deisel when the turbo pipe fell off, but I never got stranded. Anyhow that's enough for the intro. Look forward to contributing to the forum.
