Hello Peeps

Peter Door is an anagram of my username on the 145/146 forum. If you're really bored, you could work out what it is.

Thought I should join up on here as I've been visiting as a guest quite often now looking up info on the 166, because this may be my next car when I start seriously looking next year. I would be after a late facelift, or failing that it could be an early 159..if they're cheap enough by then.

I'm currently driving a 2000 W reg 145 QV. I bought it new almost exactly 8 years ago with the intention of keeping it forever. However, I'm now married & have a small noisy one on board as well, ( no sniff of that 8 years ago!), so it proabably will have to go for something bigger eventually.

Just had the 145 serviced & MOT'd. No probs really.
I 'volunteered' to have the TPS sensor replaced (being done today) because recently the engine sometimes would start revving by itself while it was idling. I've learnt by experience that better to splash the cash & get these things done asap, & not leave them cos they only get ALOT worse.

Having the rear badge replaced too; only Alfa could design their famous badge so that it self destructs. I had the front one replaced three years ago.

Anyway, hope everyone has trouble -free motoring. I look forward to beating all those cash-strapped 3.0 166 owners off with a shi**y stick next year trying to offload their cars

only kidding.
