blue oval goes all alfa male.
so whats a guy with 2 current fords doing joining this fed?
Good question and its one that took me a bit by surpise
Current vehicles are a 10yr old mark 1 focus and a ford c max. The mark 1 is a bit long in the tooth now and so a new set of wheels has been on the cards for some time. Henry T's continuous strategy of discounting lured Walkies wallet and i went seeking the latest Fiesta with scrappage discount and hoped to convince Mrs Walkies that this was a fun purchase
She wasnt having none of it and so plan b had to kick in. Step in the new baby AR and one visit to the local dealer Beachdale of Derby. Test drives booked for both Mito and Fiesta and even then i hoped for local dealer TCH to turn things in my favour. Despite all that i had read it was the AR dealer that pulled out all of the stops. The TCH vehicle was a low spec Fiesta that had the rep's personal effects in it and wasnt presentable.
Plan backfired, both self and better half fell head over for the Alfa red little beauty and order placed for 1st AR and 1st ever new car! So whilst im not yet a true alfisti
im eagerly awaiting becoming one
