Alfa 166 2.4 JTD

Took the plunge today!

Hi everyone,

My name is Gabriel. I'm from Denmark and live in Croatia with my wife who is Croatian and our 10 year old son.

I am 46 and after a great number of years driving American, German and French cars, today I took the plunge only two days after falling in love with a used 166 2.4 JTD, I took the plunge and bought my first Alfa. I already discovered a problem with the automatic gearbox having driven only a few kilometers away from the the dealer's lot. So a bit disheartened already on my maiden voyage -obviously- but here I am, an Alfa owner, for better or for worse I suppose. So I'm looking forward to better.

Anyway, this is a great forum as I can see and I hope to spend some fun time online with you guys (kickin' tires as we say in Danish ).
