Preparation is what it's all about!!
Thought I'd say hi before I get my hands dirty preparing my new car for my trip home. I have just picked up a right hand drive 1999 spider in Alfa red with black Momo leather in Venice where my parents live. 32,000 miles on the clock and am preparing to add my first 1k driving it back tomorrow! Should be an epic drive through Northern Italy, Austria, Germany and then a final dash to Calais through Northern France. Only thing that I am concerned about is the growing levels of snow in Northern France and in the UK.
Taking the car to an Alfa Romeo Spider specialist here, I was advised and bought Hankook Ventus Prime K105 rubber for each corner and have to say that I have been extremely impressed with them, its only been 4 days but I have covered about 400 miles with them on, but they have proven so far to be silent, precise and above all with great grip on the Italian roads.
Anyway I hope to get to know some fellow Alfa lovers on here and will do my best to take a few photos of the car mid trip.
Have a great Easter Monday those who read this!!
