Thanks for all the welcomes.
Having had a look around this forum I think mines a 'Proteo red' instead of rosso red like I was told.
It's not a bright red, more like a burgundy redish colour.
Also had my first repair today - luckily it was just to replace a side light buld that went
last night. Cost of £2.15!
To be honest after only paying £340 for the car I thought I would be spending a lot more money
after 3 days, but (touch wood!!) she drives fantastic, very very smooth, no leaks and the only noises
are coming via squeaks from the dash board!!
Also got my Alfa keyring today so feel like a proper alfa owner now.
