Happy New Year from a Happy New 156 Owner!

Hello, thought I should introduce myself, as I've already found the forum to be a great source of info in my first month of ownership!

I'm the quite chuffed owner of a 156 1.9 JTD m Sport, 55 plate facelift model, and I'm loving the drive. Sure many will turn their nose up at a Diesel, but I do a fair number of miles so don't have the option of petrol.

Having had a couple of oil burners (306 Dturbo, A4 2.5 quattro), I can honestly say it the most fun diesel engine i've driven... if fact sometimes it's hard to beleive it's not petrol.

Anyway - no doubt I'll pop up with some stupid questions at some point, but thankfully it seems most have already been asked so I can save myself the embarressment

So far I've learnt to turn my head lights off before starting the car (been through 4 bulbs already), and found a great local garage (Motormech in Birmingham)
