147 JTD Lusso

Hello from Leeds!

Hi there, thought I would introduce myself properly, having already had to post a breakdown thread in the 147 section!!!

I'm a 30 year old guy, living in Leeds and working in Bradford. Bought my 147 JTD for commuting and business use with a bit of style thrown in too. Have always thought it was one of the prettiest hatchbacks made in a long while and at 3k with full leather, cruise control and FSH was too much of a bargain to resist. First Alfa I have owned, and I really like it! Much less run-of-the-mill than a diesel Golf, A3 or Focus, so I am well happy!

I am a confirmed petrol head though, and still own a Pug 205 GTi, which I am using daily right now as the Alfa is sidelined with a suspected split turbo hose.

Am also thinking of buying a little convertible for the wife, so might be posting about that soon. Got my eye on a Spider (second most recent shape - sorry don't know model numbers!) potentially or perhaps a classic - who knows. Might be asking for some advice.

I imagine I will be more of a lurker than a frequent poster, but looking forward to getting some technical tips and help as I do like to crack open the spanners and get stuck in every now and again!
