Hello from Halifax.

Hello, my name is Andrew and I recently purchased a 53 plate 156 2.4 20v m-jet sportwagon veloce (to give it its full title) in silver.
Just short of 100k miles with a full alfa history. (5795, if youre wondering. Was it a good deal?)

This is my 2nd Alfa after buying a 156 selespeed which caused my previous girlfriend to cry because it constantly broke down on her and so it went back after 3 weeks (the car).

The 1st time I put my foot down in this one there was a poop from the engine and the management light came on. Oh No! Not again. Apparently it was just a pipe to the turbo which was 'fixed' and promptly did it again when I got it back. Oh Jebus, I thought, is this one going to have to go back?

But praise the lord, Ive had a few months of hassle free driving and I absolutely love her! She is gorgeous!
