Hello to all!

I've never been part of an internet forum before, so please be kind! The reason I've joined this one is that I've just purchased a 2001 156 2.0 TS Sportwagon. I've teetered on the brink of Alfa ownership for many years. Friends, who own expensive German cars, think I'm two stops past Barking for downsizing from my previous nearly-new Mercedes E320 CDI estate for a 7 year old Alfa. The truth is, I mainly commute by train, so the Merc was just sitting there and costing vast amounts of money, mainly in depreciation. So I've taken the plunge, albeit in a small way. I really want the experiment to work, so look forward to your help and support, should the car prove to be not quite as reliable as the Mercedes!
Happy Days,

Re: Hello to all!

I too was a little nervous about reliability when I took the plunge but I have no regrets. My last car was a boring Astra which are supposed to be as reliable as they come - It cost me an absolute fortune in repairs and couldn't wait to get rid of it. It's just luck I think. Enjoy the Alfa!
