I just bought myself an Alfa 156 2.0 Twin Spark a week ago. I must say, I made an impulse buy, did not even check anything, I was completely taken by this monstrous beauty. The car has only one issue(radiator fan not turning on), but it drives like a dream, the engine is so quite, I had to open up the bonnet several times to check if the engine is still running.
The funnything about all of this, when I went for shopping my intention was to buy Nissan Almera, then I saw a beauty(alfa), carefully being caressing by four grown men with soap and water. I'd say, love at first sight.
Anyways, this is a great site to connect with other Alfa owners. I hope to make a meaningful contribution to this community.
