So at the ripe old age of 34, I have taken the plunge and bought myself my first Alfa on Saturday. I've always wanted one, but have never been brave enough until now.
I've had Vauxhall, Ford, Nissan, Citroen, Mazda. VW, Rover, Fiat, Renault and a few others i can't/don't want to remember!
I fell in love with this one as soon as i saw it.
It's a 2007 '57' 159 turismo 1.9 jdtm in blue with beautiful 'machined' finish multi spoke wheels and cream interior.
I'm a very happy boy!
First job is the water pump, as the dealer didn't know if it had been replaced when the cam belt was done not long ago and threw one in as part of the deal, an oil change, then probably get the wheels minted up, maybe a nice chrome exhaust (not keen on the bare metal look at present) and definitely some seat covers for the back as my boys, who are 3 and 6 (strange names I know) will make mince meat of the light interior!
I'm in and around the south manchester/stockport area, so if you are local, or even if you're not, say hello!
I look forward to getting to know some of you, and getting stuck into some of the fantastic information and advice this great fansite has to offer.
I have well and truly been biten!
So here I am at the start of my Alfa journey. Wish me luck!
