Well Happy Hello All

Hi Guy's,

I've just taken possession of my fourth Alfa, Sud which started the romance, although I really wanted a GTV I even saw my dream machine in a dealership in Germany it was dark metallic blue with a light cream velour interior, but I bought a Golf GTI instead. But that was not the end an early 147 Selespeed around 2001 then later a 2.5 litre 156 with the Q-Box Auto system & then up to the present with my 2008 147 Selaspeed which both feels & looks better than the original.
I need Automatics due to a back problem & sciatica, but there is nothing to say an Automatic has to be dull! Right?

I've already found a couple of useful threads on this forum & no doubt there will be plenty more.

Glad to be here

Thanks Sue, Stu & Nigel

I would really love a spider, but I have chronic back trouble so even if I could get in one, I may never get out, well certainly not in a dignified fashion

This is the second 147, I got this when I was doing fairly high miles, but unfortunately I had too many niggly problems & eventually sold it back to the supplying dealer & got a reliable swede SAAB AERO. Then I had to stop work so sold the Saab & went for a 156 2.5 Q System. Scorcher.

But I have the comfort factor of the 147 hard to beat for a medium size car. Which is great for me & feeds my passion

Regards to all
