I've been lurking for a while,and thought it was about time I siad hi.
I bought my '98 2.0 GTV a couple of months ago after selling my BMW 325 coupe.
I wasn't intending to buy one.I'd actually gone to see a peugeot 406 V6 coupe,however,on the bay of flea,I'd noticed the Alfa and made a note of the phone no.It was only a couple of miles from the Pug,so I thought I may as well take a look.I was sold instantly.I was wary,given Alfas chequered history,but,damn,it looked so good.she had about 8 months mot and tax and loads of history.When he told me the reserve was £1000,I thrust the cash into his hand and the car was mine.
I'm afraid,I did none of the Alfa checks.I knew a cambelt was needed,but it didn't matter,she had to be mine.
Anyway,she's on 167000 miles and the only things to have gone wrong are the airbag light has come on as well as the boot open indicator.I gather these are fairly common.
So here she is.
