First Alfa - First V6 - Wicked!

When I picked up my '98 156 three weeks ago, I joined two clubs I've longed to for a while... and to do it with one car for only 1k makes it feel even better!

Coming as I have from a Chrysler PT Cruiser (complete with authentic slushbox transmission) the driving feel and spirit of the car is inspiring though I find the brakes do leave something to be desired...

My 156 seems to have be extremely well-cared for with not much sign of her almost 90,000 miles, except a slightly worn clutch. The engine is smooth as silk and very responsive, with no disturbing rattly noises (as yet).

This forum was very useful in my decision-making process - i.e. V6 or TS; Q System or manual! - and I think I've made the perfect decision so many thanks to everyone.
