This is to introduce myself.
I have had two previous Alfas, the first a 164 Super 24v V6, then a 156 24v V6, and now have a 156 GTA (for about a year).
Before getting the 164 I had a Rover 825 V6 which was a much bettter car than it is generally thought. I ran it into the ground and after 125000 miles I was looking for something less complex and more reliable. Then I was offered the 164. Good sense went out the window after the first drive and I have been hooked on V6 Alfas ever sinse.
I look forward to sharing some thoughts and hearing about the odd foibles of Alfa ownership.
