Wave Alfa wave


I have just bought an Alfa Romeo 156 Sportwagon (red obviously) which I picked up in London on Saturday (3 days ago.)

Yesterday I got waved at by a bloke on the M27 in a blue 156 and found myself waving back.

Question is will this happen often and what else will change about me?

Somebody once told me that everyone should own an Alfa once in their life and now I know why.... It's nice to be here.

Good for you Freddy.
You should wave to all Alfa's although most people will think you're daft but hey...!

Re: Alfa wave

Dear All

Thanks for the's very odd all this, not like driving a Peugeot at all!

Can anyone help with a couiple of questions, firstly my car had no stereo when I bought it but it's got a sub and a 6 cd multichanger in the boot, what stereo head unit would be best?
Secondly my front bumper is missing a small round plug on the drivers side which leaves a small 1" hole showing?
Thirdly my boot cover doesn't retract leaving it permanently out, is this common/fixable?
Finally, I've tried uploading photos but no joy?

Thanks for everything

Re: Alfa wave

Zulu Ferret - does it help if the size 9s are polished to a mirror finish?
I've noticed that a lot of newer Alfas seem to ignore the wave culture. Are there a lot of BMW drivers who have been lured to Alfa by Jeremy Clarkson, and his comments about Alfas having "soul"?
