I live in lincolnshire and at the tender age of 44 have just purchased a thirdhand 156 t spark and its not running well, but i will post elsewhere for that, and what can i say its like WOW.
We have had it for 3 days and its at the garage at the minute its like loosing the cat, no worse - the dog.
If i am like this after 1 day god only knows what i will be like in a years time.
I walked past this car for 2 weeks when walking the dog, thinking "nice - but 2 much for us"
Then the little rover had to go for an mot - or not!!!!! - she was over reving, rust on all the wheel arches, exhaust with a possible hole in the exhaust. She was a old J reg so has done us proud............. (you get the drift - for us and many others money is a little tight) so i called in to have a look at the alfa.
88,000 miles, no body work arch issues, dent in the boot lid - hey its an s reg not an issue - interior lovely clean no tears in the upholstery, wooden steering wheel, and i hadnt even started it yet. AND I wanted it.
Started it and wellllllllllllllll.............................. - wanted it even more
fuel light was on, but most cars i have looked at have that, ran sweet as a nut.
So chat with the tank commander and she says get it
And we did ................................
Paid my money and drove to the nearest garage filled up and wouldnt start, back to the garage, worked for 3 days and now goes 5 miles and refuses to start till cold again.
So she is at the garage till wednesday.
But i miss her and want her back and working.
I never realised how stunning they are to drive
Everyone can keep their BMW's and Audi's from now on i will always take an alfa
