Im Stephen from Rossendale in Lancashire where I return to for weekends, during the week I live near Silverstone in Northamptonshire where I work.
A couple of weeks ago I bought another Alfa Romeo after almost 2 years of Vauxhall!
Back in 2008/2009 I had a black 147 selespeed and loved it however because of the mileage I was doing it was costing over £100 a week in fuel so it had to go. I part exchanged it (for more than I paid for it) for a Vauxhall Signum 2.2 dti which was a nice spec'd car with good fuel economy, quite a lot of torque but compared to an Alfa quite a dreary drive.
Anyway, now I have a black 147 ti JTDm 150 so more power than the Vauxhall and even better fuel economy plus the alfa magic
Already had it in to Autolusso for service and cambelt change. Ive used them before when they were at their old premises and I highly recommend them. Peak Alfa are excellent too especially for drive to and from over snake pass
Here are a few links to some photos-
