A born-again alfisti

Hi all,

A combination of Sunday evening boredom and an itchy trigger finger on ebay motors has resulted in the unexpected ownership of a cheap '01 GTV 3.0 24v Lusso!

This is no bad thing since I love Italian metal and have fond memories of two previous Alfas I owned in the 90s (an '87 Spider 2.0 and a 146).

Whilst I originally planned to sell on for a few ££££ 'Freddie' (as my wife calls him) has instantly won us over, becoming a permanent fixture.

Having now covered around 500 miles in the GTV I'm left thinking only one thing...are these cars motoring's best kept secret or what????

I'm stunned at what this little car delivers for the money and frankly hope that word doesn't spread - joined this forum in an attempt to make sure it remains our little secret!

Anyway, keen to swap tips and ownership anecdotes with like-minded alfisti. Planning plenty of mods/upgrade but will save that for another thread.

See you around!
