As I'm new here (and the site made me do it) I thought I'd say hi! I've just bought my first car after 6 years of driving other people's and as a petrol head thought an Alfa 146 would be more fun that a fiesta. Certainly more interesting so far, what with breaking down with a burnt out alternator on a wet and windy night. On a night out to celebrate my other-half's birthday...oops.
It was a bargin, so has a few niggles - the idle is all over the place and it sounds like a diesel (new variator I think - just had it serviced by an alfa specialist and that's what he thought) but apart from that it's in good nick.
I look forward to picking the brains of the more experienced owners here as I go along!
