Delta III 1.9 TT

i am the newbie ;)

Hi Guys,

i'm the new boy on the block...
In mid April i killed my all-day car in a dump accident....well wasn't dead actually but about 6000€ repair bill made me sell it to some verry-south-east-guy for 5000€.
Have to say that car's like this were sold at around 12.000€ here, but the Dealer would've given me only 7000€ without the Damage and with ~15.000km less on the clock.
So i got away blue eyed, but without a car....for the first time since 3 Years...this realy sucked.

My old car was a 2003 2nd. Generation Nissan Primera 2.2dCI (4Door)
featured some quite cool stuff:

- ClimateControl, BC, SatNav
- automated whishers & dimming mirror (miss the mirror the most)
- xenon
- a phenomenal Engine (Nissan shure knows how to build a Diesel!)
- 17" Alloys

just to name a few of the stuff which is different to my new bought Alfa.

As i like to go a little sporty round corners the car got a new suspension, i went for the Eibach Pro-Kit & KYB AGX dampers, verry verry nice daily ride but verry stable at cornering and to cope for the sometimes a little higher speeds the Brakes got upgraded with EBC - Green Stuff, not that it was actual needed since the Breaks were increadible (which other sedan stops from 100kph to 0 in 37m?)...but as i told you i fall for the sporty stuff....

And as you may see i am not realy happy to have it sold, but it had to be the way it is now.

And as i fall for the fast stuff ich fall for the Alfa 156 2.5 V6, altough i have to admit that i got into it just because it was fairly cheap, it has a few flaws but overall it's verry nice, comes with black leather and at least it has a ClimaControl...but i have to say i don't like the suspension, it is to high and the dampers are to soft :/ (will change maybe... )

And as i fall for the sporty stuff the Alfa has a tough stand....right next to it sits a 1989 Nissan 200sx which is getting completely rebuild (by myself)...even stock the little 4 banger is a tough opponent for the little itallian stallion

> actually the 200sx is 4,53m long (makes the alfa look little )

Plans for now, trying to get used to the engine, keeping an eye to oil consuption...enjoing the sound from time to time (sadly enjoyment comes hand in hand with a big glup out of the gasoline bottle...)

if you guys have any questions feel free to ask oh and btw:
try to take a look at this thread, maybe someone can say me if my "feeling" is right or not.
