Hi, I'm Richard and been an Alfa fan since seeing a Alfetta GTV at the Scottish Motor Show in early 70's. I currently drive a 159 1.9 Diesel and have recently had a GT 1.9 Diesel and a 156 1.8TS.
Historically, I owned an Alfasud - great car but it dissintegrated while I watched.
I recently had a problem with the 159 - the power steering had air in the system. The garage was absolutely useless - the car was off the road for over 3 weeks. However, Alfa kept in touch while the car was in the garage which I felt was a nice touch.
