New to Alfaowner but not new to Alfas!

Hi, thought i would finally join instead of "lurking" in the background! I have been registered for years on as i have owned 3 Fiat Coupe Turbos inc an LE and always found it invaluable, now im finding Alfaowner equally invaluable, thank you!

I bought my first Alfa, a spider V6 about 6 years ago when the LE started to age and fell in love with Alfa on the test drive.A while later decided to go down the 147 GTA route and had a blast in an amazing car, however i still missed the Spider. So, i bought a 6 month old 3.2V6 with customer hardtop and autodelta springs and never looked back, the longest iv EVER kept a car.

Change of work meant i got a company Vectra Hearse so sold the Alfa and bough another Fiat Coupe for weekends. Lost my job last year so lost the Hearse so came back to Alfa and bought a 55 plate 156 Sport and love it (until i can afford a V6 again )

I do c25k miles a year and the Alfa even though its passing 103k miles is tight to drive and incredibly reliable, the only niggles being a heater fan worn out and a couple of MCSF issues that Mark from Mototech in Liverpool has sorted promptly and fairly, i will be using him for all future service and work, he knows his stuff and is interested and friendly to boot!

Anyhow for those that are still awake, thanks for a great and useful site.
