Greetings & Salutations.

G'day, I'm Steve, 39 from Adelaide, Australia. I'm the proud owner of a new (3000 kays almost) 159 Ti JTS 2.2. It replaced my beloved old Renaultsport Megane F1 Team Edition. I decided to go for something that still had some sporting pretentions but less overtly so, and somethingn that had more comfort and style, and Monica (the name of my car) certainly ticks those boxes. She's named after another female Italian lusty, Monica Bellucci. Shame on you if you don't know her!

As always, when I buy a car there are some mandatory things that must be done:

- paint protection
- window tint
- exhaust
- stereo

I've dealt with 2 of those things and the exhaust is being organised now and likewise the stereo.

I'm a "moderately enthusiastic" car owner in that I believe my car exists to serve me, not the other way around so I will use premium products to clean it sure, but I won't be out there for 3 hours every Sunday polishing it. I do enjoy my driving (ergo the Megane F1) and so if you see a 159 being driven spiritedly along Basket Range Rd then you can give me a wave!

I got a custom plate (red, to match the car) the other day to match her: AFL-159.

Look forward to talk to you all further. Cheers,

Thanks for all the welcomes. I've uploaded my pics to the gallery section under the 159 part. I'm too noob to know how to link to them here (and they are still being approved). Once I have the exhaust and stereo install done I'll update those pics there too.
