New Zealand 145

Hi Alfa fans,

Finally bought my first Alfa Romeo - a 1996 145. I could have got a later model, but much prefer the sound of the boxer engine!

I have only owned it for 3 days and thoroughly enjoyed every kilometer so far, unfortunately it seems to be living up to the Alfa reputation as the wipers packed up on the way to work this morning. It's now in my garage and I'm about to get the spanners out. All part of the Alfa experience I'm sure and looking forward to discussing many topics with Alfaowners.

...wipers update...

Thanks for all the messages - ignore my point about the wipers - turned out to be user error (RTFM!), I though the knurled ring for the intermittent speed was the wiper control. Wiper stalk down = wipers on - no problem!

I'll help you - what part of the country are you in (I'm in Auckland) - and I have experience with all Alfas from 1960's Berlinas on, and have worked with boxer 33's for many years.
