Alfa newbie!!

1stly i'll say a big hello to everybody!!

2ndly I picked up my 1st Alfa last friday!! A 1999S 145 1.8TS!! I've basically bought it as a gap car!! I've put my Puma up for sale & wanted something cheap & needing tidying up so put me on until i've saved for something, dare i say it, better!! It needs a couple of things sorting, but nothing major, rear wiper motor, drivers door doesn't lock with key but will unlock!! Also needs the common faulty crank sensor replacing!! lol!!

3rdly, i picked up a 2001 147 1.6TS Lusso today!! I've bought that for my gf as she's had her A3 for 4yrs now & i'm sick of seeing it!! Not that there's anything wrong with her A3, it's been very reliable with only having to have 1 fault fixed in 4yrs!! although after a 210 mile drive home today i may keep the 147 for myself & sell the 145 once i've finished the little jobs & put it through MOT!! I did get teh 147 at a good price as the bodywork does have a few marks on it but nothing that can't be sorted easily & cheap enough!!

Anyways, that's about it!! lol!!
