Just bought one yesterday!
Hi there! I'm Lynz, female, 21 from Chertsey, Surrey. As the title says I took home my first Alfa Romeo yesterday. It's only my second car but I've been saving long and hard for the last 6 months for this beauty.
It's a 2006 red face-lifted 147 and I love it! I'm ashamed to admit my last car was a Fiat Cinquecento cos it's really about as pants as you can get, but it lasted me 5 years so I decided it was time to move on. It was really a spur-of-the-moment decision to get an Alfa; the only experience we've had of them was having a 147 as a rental car in Portugal. But I did my research for a few weeks before finally putting the money on the table. And it's worth every penny of the 6-grand that I paid. It's a lovely car and I hope that I'll be as in love with it in 3,4,5 years down the line as I am with it now.
While I was out taking it for a spin earlier, apparently someone in a 147 slowed down outside our drive and was having a quick glance around. They must have passed earlier in the day and saw it on the drive and wanted to get a better look. Oh, and I got my first Alfa wave today! It's been a good day!
See you around!
