"it's not a car, it's an Alfa!"
Just bought a 03 plate 156 2.0 JTS Sportwagon and I love it.
Everyone says "have you broken down yet?" and so on but they haven't driven it!
The engine sounds fantastic and the steering is so positive. I have also just found out it has a Bose sub woofer in the boot - cool.
First thing I need to get is a radio code, why do these never get passed on when you buy a secondhand car?
Also the brakes don't seem as sharp as I expected, I am wondering if the pads are glazed. The pedal seems to travel quite a long way before anything happens but it doesn't feel like air in the system.
