Hi from Ireland


Hi, My names Dave and I am picking up my first Alfa Today. Its a Red 156 1.8 ti, 2005. I have lots of questions to ask so I am sure you will get bored of me in no time.

I've had lots of cars and used to work in the motor industry, so as a mechanic I really thought I would never buy an Alfa but when the 156 came out and then again the facelift around 2004, I had to admit I really fancied one.

Ive mostly stuck to VW's and BMW's with two Dihatsu's when I first started driving. I also had a Ford for a couple of months that I hated with a passion but I have to admit it never broke down and nothing ever went wrong with it. Then again I had a 318 that always had something wrong with it and an E39 525tds touring that broke my heart but I still loved them.

Maybe thats why an Alfa might just suit me...

Anyway Hi all!

Hello and welcome to AO.......Alfas have come a long way, and with your mechanical training you will be able to pamper yours and prevent major problems which, as you have said, can and does happen to all marques.....
