First search of irony...

Hi All

I've just put down a deposit on a 147 today and pretty much swopped my BMW 330Ci Cab due to doing a few more miles and the 3 litre being a bit thirsty. I never really thought about an alfa - although they look nice I hadn't looked hard at them until I saw this 147 on autotrader...

I went to see it today and the dealer did me a good deal so I shook on it. I must say though - it's got one of the longest model names i've ever Alfa Romeo 147 JTDM 16v (150) Ti Special Edition!! how ridiculous is that?!

I've since learnt that all that means is that it's a lusso with a few extra toys so I'm well happy. Here's a cheeky pic taken prior to the garage valeting it (it only came in on friday).

I'm looking forward to getting to know it as soon as I pick it up - hopefully tuesday. I'm already thinking that a remap is on the cards so will be scouring the forum for info on that..

Oh yeah - the irony bit is that every car I've bought, ever, has had an issue or had me spending money on it quite soon after buying....i'n hoping that an alfa - with a reputation for being fragile will be different!

Cheers guys
