Wave me, again - Hello! :)

First did this 4-5 yrs ago - but a lot changed since then, so here I am again!

Your Forum name

Real name


Air Traffic Controller

Neer, Limburg, Netherlands

Marital Status
Registered partnership with long term girlfriend (a special Dutch thing that doesnt exist in the UK!) Oh and our great dog, Wallace!

which cars do you drive and why?
1998 Spider 2.0TS Lusso. Nero black with red leather and manual hood.
Poly bushed - 6000k HIDS - Ragazzon unsilenced centre and rear sections - sport CAT - 17" multispokes - too many new parts to list. Cost me 7k to buy in 2006 and has cost me close to 15k since in repairs! Have also had a couple of new shape Spider JTDMs and a 175bhp 500 Abarth in the mean time (all sold now)
Partners car is a 2009 Pug 206+ 1.1 . 60bhp of ferociousness, ideal for a new driver!

Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
yes - since I got my first Spider in 2006 I could easily have bought and maintained something like a F355 or 360 for the same money - makes me a bit gutted in a way, but I love the marque!

What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
Cant really say TBH, always liked Italian cars and the twinny came along at the right moment when I was looking for my first 'real' car, havent looked back.
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?
Have been a member of both ARUK and AO, but not anymore. Quit ARUK as I didnt see any benefit from it and didnt renew my AO membership as I took a bit of a dislike to some of the forum polotics! :S

What do you like most about Alfas?
Sound of the engines and the fact you always have to have one last look back as you walk away from the car!

What do you like least about Alfas?
Nothing is cheap.

What would be your dream cars?
Italian Exotic or pure American muscle.

What car would you least like to drive?
Obscure and bland eurobox.

For you, what’s the most popular thread on AO?
I only really use the technical lounges, to share my experiences and learn from others!

What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
I drove to Rome last year in my Abarth, id love to re-do that trip in a Spider.

What interests do you have outside of Alfas?
DIY, sports here and there, computing, flying

Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)
I have got a GOLD Blue Peter badge

Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?
Um, I usually buy the beers, thats a pretty good trick as far as my mates are concerned!

What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?
the technical lounges are invaluable

If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?
pay off some debts - sad, but a reality of buying your own place!

-1998 916 Spider 2.0TS Lusso-
