Hello From The Midlands!
Id like to introduce myself im Ash, from good old Stoke On Trent, i meet some of you a few nights ago at the Alfa Romeo 8c Night at Platts in Longton, and after doing some searching (through the 500,000 Alfa Romeo Forums on the web) I think ive finally come to the right place!
I drive a Grande Punto Active Sport, not quite a Alfa but theres still time, ive grown up with Alfas and Fiats and all things Italy my entire life, it is pretty much in my blood. Not sure if you guys noticed but the front showroom in the old building at Platts was having work done to it and will house the first Arbarth Showroom and Arbarth Punto in the UK, theres a few Italian workers building it as i speak!
Recently i went with the MD's from Platts to go and pick up the 8c from Modena and wow what a time we had, i had a go coming back and was sh*tting myself and the sheer power of the thing. The entire trip around Maserati requires a topic in itself.
I seem to hear quite a bit of Fiat/Alfa news pretty often so ill try pass that on wherever possible.
Also can i say how impressed i was with everyones knowledge of all things Alfa the other night. Confused even me! Im also a member on fiatforum.co.uk although i dont post and occasionally read.
