At last- an Alfa!

Hi everyone,

Well after many years of very varied car ownership I have at long last gone out and bought myself an Alfa. Ok so it's not an 8C grand prix car but it is for me, ( I hope) a very practical purchase. Yes its a 159 sportwagon.

It was a toss up between an X type Jag estate, A very impressive Chyrler 300 Estate or the Alfa Sportwagon. Needless to say, Style won over substance and the test drive confirmed what I always thought.

It might not be a competant load lugger like a Volvo or retain its value like a BMW 3/5 series but what it does have it has it in spades. Having the prettiest badge in world is of course a bonus.

I haven't taken delivery yet so if anyone out there has any advice or horror stories that I shoud be aware of about Alfa ownership on this model, ( its a 2.2 petrol version) I would be glad to hear them

Michael Cotti.
