My first post here - just joined this forum, but been reading it for a while now. Lots of useful information and discussion - brilliant.
I'm in my 40s, two 6 year old kids who already recognise the AR symbols
. Used to tamper with cars when I was younger - just basic stuff though - brakes, exhausts, spark plugs....don't seem to have the time now though !
I've had two Alfas - a 147 which I bought from a dealer (ex demo car). Great fun - only a little 1.6 but made driving pleasurable. Had to sell it when my twins arrived.
Went through a whole range of 'people carriers' when the kids were younger - Chrysler Voyager 3.3 being by far the best (shame about needing another mortgage for the petrol
), but now have a 156 1.8 TS.
Currently thinking about picking up an Alfa 166 TS as the family car. (Fortunately my wife uses her car for the school-run!!!)
