Hello All!

Hello to all, I'm Chris and I have recently just bought myself a 10 yr old 147 as my first car. Rather than go for some bland uninteresting Clio/Corsa in a similar price range - albeit slightly newer - I chose the Alfa though and couldn't be happier with it. A few teething problems due to the age of the car with gear selector cables snapping within 2 days of owning it and a little oil leak from what I can only guess is the power steering. I know a little about cars and joined AO to get to know more, putting it simply!
