Well it has been far to long now, my first and last Alfa was an E reg 75 3.0 V6 Veloce. What a car. However when my daughter came along we decided that it had to go, that boot just couldnt cope with the push chair.
Been a bit in the wilderness ever since, we have had 2 Mitsubishi Galant 2.6 V6 Estates. We also have a 1998 Mini Cooper, that has been played with a little bit
Antway the time has come to part company with the Galant and get something newer, we wanted another estate but we so hate all the standard euroboxes. Of course having been out of the Alfa world for a while I had lost track a bit, SWMBO suggested mabe we should get another Alfa. Next day I stopped off at the local dealer and had a look around and fell in love with the 159 1.9 JTDM Ti Sportwagon.
A bit of research later and maybe it wont be the Ti with Tyres costing the earth and the main reason for changing cars is to reduce my comuting costs.
Oh well lets settle for a Lusso. we both had a test drive in an 07 plate car today and loved it. Now its just a case of finding the one we want.
The dealer proposed a used Ti with 3000 miles on the clock, but I still cant justify it, if I was to go for that then I might as well go for the 2.4 Lusso, will probably cost about the same to run.
I am sure the right car will come up soon, it needs to I just sold the Galant.
