Hi guys!

I'm Filbert from Singapore and I have a black 2004 147 2.0 Selespeed which I have been driving for 3yrs already. Actually have been in the forum for quite a while but have not posted any introduction posts yet.

I'd just want to say, I love my 147!

I remember the first day I saw her, she looked.. so beautiful! 17" GT multispokes, MS design bodykit, red leather, omg!

When I sat in it, I fell in love with her. The deep set meter cluster, the red interior lights... the sound of the 2.0ts...

I had never wanted to buy an Alfa, the thought had never crossed my mind. In Singapore, there are very very few Alfas on the road.

I paid the deposit that day. I have never regretted. I think, I will never sell my 147.

Of course, I had my fair share of the typical 'alfa' problems, many people say that Alfa is problematic, but I feel if you keep the alfa in tiptop condition, with regular servicing and part change, theres no problem at all.

Of course, I'm thinking of more power from the engine, but I dont think I'd want to go force induction as I think it'll prolly spoil the 'character' of the car. Lets see...

Anyway, sorry for my mini rant, just wanted to get it off my chest!
