Warning oh no, here come another one...........

Evening all

Just thought i would say hello to you all. im a new member, not only to the site but also to Alfa Romeos and Italian cars in general.

I have to admit it wasnt the easist decision to make, after test driving a load of other cars, including MG TFs ( ) ford cougers ( x2 ) a couple of Audi TTs ( ) and a few Fiat Coupes, i finally decided to settle on a GTV. i have havn't regreted a second of it.

My car history has been pretty small, in the last 8 years i've had 3 cars, 1st one was a MK2 Golf GTI (great fun) then went onto an MR2 Turbo (mental fun) and then to a BMW 728i (subtle fun...) which i sold a couple of weeks back.

spent a good month researching and test driving a load a cars and on 15th June i went and got my self the car below.

Its a 2001 Y Phase 2 3.0 GTV, with all the usual equipment. im really happy with the colour conbination of black with tan leather. make the car look like a 2009 car!







i know now what all the fuss is about! its a great little car. the service history indicates that the all important timing belt and rear bushes have been done so i have a few miles of not worrying about it. there are a couple of niggle but i'll go into those in a another section.

other that, be prepared for lots of question from me (some may even be worth answering!) and i hope to get to know all of you
