hope to be an alfa owner soon!!!
been lurking around here for a little while now trying to get as much info as possible on either a 147 (5dr) or a 156SW. Hopefully will be buying around christmas time.
Whilst I'd prefer a 147, I'm a bit concerned about boot size (i generally have a 2 suitcase rule - 2 fiited in a 5dr fiesta with a bit of encouragement, hire cars - don't you just love 'em
.Also, the 147 seems by all accounts a little bit more reliable than the 156 (going for a facelift model).
Not bothered by all the doom-mongers who say I'll spend most of the time on the hard shoulder as I've owned fiats for the last 10 years which have proved very reliable but now feel it's time for a proper italian car. As i understand it's the same with fiat in that you cannot skimp on maintainance.
Anyway, finally saying hi and congrats on an excellent,informative forum.
Normally on fiatforum.com but hopefully switching allegience soon
