Well Happy Just bought a GTV!!

Hello all,newbie here,first post so be gentle!I'm a 34 year old male,have recently bought a '99 reg 2.0 gtv.It's the first Alfa I've owned or even driven.Prior to this I have had 5 honda civics,economical,reliable,cheap to maintain and repair!I have now possibly bought the polar opposite of the civic
The car is gorgeous,dark blue,drives like a dream,93,000 or so on the clock,had engine replaced at 66,000.MOT is up in august,slightly dreading this!Bodywork in generally good nick,although the bonnet does'nt shut properly on one side(have seen this on a few others)has a few electrical issues-the dreaded airbag light,heater/air con not working.
Otherwise generally good car.Was bought off autotrader,originally on for 1,800,got it for 1,400.
Have wanted one since they came out in '96

Welcome, I had a Honda Civic as well but many many more Alfas. Im on Alfa number 7 now

If you know where to shop around the Alfa should be the same cost as the Honda to maintain but 10 times better to enjoy and drive
