Hi there, everyone.
I am not currently an Alfa owner, but I am looking to buy either a used 159 2.4 or 3.2 in the near future. My dad has always been an owner of Alfas and Fiats and is also known as one of the best independent Alfa mechanics in South Africa - so after owning a string of VWs, a Lotus Elise and now an old Honda Accord shed (it's a long story...) here in the UK, I am looking to join in the family passion and get my first Alfa probably early in the new year.
I have been lurking for a little while reading through the forum to find out people's experiences with the two models I am considering - seems like it is a bit of a mixed bag, but generally it seems good so that is encouraging. I guess with an Alfa it is a prerequisite to be blinded to the problems by the badge and the good looks...
I am looking forward to taking part in future discussions as a fellow Alfa owner!
