Newbie to the forum

Hellos All, I am Julio, writing from Sweden.
Currently owning my first Alfa, a GTV 3.0 V6 from '97, quite sweetest and best car I have had so far. Quite moody, requires much care and attention, BUT totally worth it the driving experience. I owned an BMW e36 coupe '97, and while I loved that car too, there is a big difference. That was a German, it was perfect and insensitive. This one is irregularly perfect...and very moody. So I own an Alfa and I can call myself finally a true Petrol Head.
I got the GTV on may, and have done some fixing up, since it was not used for a while, among the thins are a clutch change, removed the alarm (giving electrical problems), changed some bushings. Other than that the car has been running like a dream, put a smile in face every time I'm sitting in it. I really do look forward to driving it every day!!!
I have already learned a lot about Alfa Romeo and my specific model from this great forum, some really helpful people, and the whole site really good. Hope to get to know a lot more, and help anyone whenever I can.

Happy Driving!


Getting the winter wheels at the moment. Coldest winter in 1000 years some say!
