New with Alfa and everything..

So im gonna warn you first with an long post.. I am Malheus, works with only saying Mal to

After my old Mercedes-Benz W124 broke down and I swapped engine but didnt make it work that good again, I decided it was way to old and junk..rusty and such.
Saved up some money enough to borrow money from bank. Checked some cars in higher class, and first I looked for some Volvo S40 2.0T but didnt go well. 20k miles and still no damage on the hood from small rocks and such + 8 owners? Hmm..

Looked some more and found myself a Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 TS. And why Alfa? Im not sure, didnt felt sure first because of rumors with quailty, gearbox and such.

But why bother, I pulled myself to the dealer and took a test drive and wow..just wow. The steering felt amazing, I work with Ford daily so that was the first thing I felt. The engine sound is undescrible compare to other straight-4s

Yet the car wasnt problemfree, it have been on road at 20k miles, yet serviced at Alfa Romeo workshops and the gearbox even worked problemfree. Sad thing is it gets tierd after 4000 RPM but that seem to be some normal-alfa problem? Im getting a new MAF(I think translate is) next week and then..mhhhm

Still worth it, im both forced by bank and myself to keep this car, yum!
