Thumbs Up Oh the joy!!!

I'm going round with a smile on my face as I am now the owner of a black 159 SW 1.9JTD.

I'm new to Alfa's, except listening to my biology teacher going on about his Alfasud. That was a very long time ago!

But having had an old Audi A6 estate recently written off, SHMBO said, ' can we have something more fun'.

We looked at a 159 SW in Bristol and the deal was done.

Apart from stalling it in the middle of the test drive and not realising you have to press the clutch / brake to restart. Plonker? Moi?

Yes my garage has warned me of much pain, wailing, and gnashing of teeth will happen if I bought one, but I thought what the heck. (I did ask how many 159's they have serviced and the answer was none, so not sure on what they based this opinion)

Looks just amazing in the drive, drives and feels much better put together than my old panzer and puts a huge smile on my face each time I get into it.

As my daughter said this morning, 'it's like going on holiday when you climb in'.

What more can I say and this is from someone who rides a BMW GS all the time.

Going from the ridiculous to the sublime. In looks that is.
