First Ever Alfa Experience !!

Hello everyone!

Up until recently I have been driving a Mercedes CLK 220 CDi (Auto). When the lease expired I wanted to find a new car that would excite me but also not cost the earth!! Loads of research later, I am delighted to tell you that I have bought an Alfa 156 2.0 T Spark Veloce on a 51 plate for 1000!!!! 87k on clock and loads of receipts for work over the years! I feel like a have got a bargain, particularly when I get behind the wheel ! Whoo hoo just about sums it up! Never driven an Alfa before and can't get enough. I love the handling and the engine noise!
You know when you get a new car, and all of a sudden you start to notice that 'everyone' else has got one too?? Well, thats just not the case with a 156 is it???

Anyway, I live in Barnsley (S Yorkshire) - hopefully come across some of you guys on the road !

Cheers all
