Re: 147 new owner
Owned my Alfa for 3 days now and done over 300 miles, it's an absolute stormer! The torque in the multijet engine is superb and makes chunking up miles a breeze. 3 minor fixes - washer sqoosers, wipers, and tailgate clunk all sorted in 10mins. Really enjoying the car and loving the fact it's not a Golf. If I'd believed all the crap I read on Google searches about the car I would never have bought one! There's no squeaks or rattles, the gearchange is perfect, driving position excellent, no grumbles about the handling so far either - need to change the front tyres as they where cheapos and there is a fair amount of understeer. Unable to boot it round roundabouts in the wet! Delighted, can't believe no one was interested in the car at the auction I bought it from. Are the dealer fit mudflaps any good? I would like to minimise gravel rash on the car and get more than 3 miles before the car needs washed.
