New Member and new 156 Sportwagon owner

Just bought my 2nd Alfa. My 1st was an old clover leaf about 25 years ago when Alfas had a horrible (deserved) reputation. It went like a rocket but rotted from the inside out. It got so bad it started to bend downwards just in front of the windscreen! Put me off until last week.....
Saw a lovely looking 1.8 Sportwagon on a 51 plate. 60k on the clock and full leather interior. Couldnt resist it and traded my Merc A 160 for it. The Merc was lovely but... boring. The Alfa is Lovely and far from boring. Wonderful to drive and you get that Alfa acceleration and the distinctive exhaust growl. A proper car.
Well thats it for my 1st post, no doubt I will need help with the little quirks that come with Alfas.

Hi and welcome, I recently bought a 156 Sw as well and love it. So much fun and i can justify it to my wife as it is a practical family car. Anyway congrats on the SW and enjoy.
