Glad to be back!

Well it feels damn good to be back following 2 years in the Scandinavian wilderness!

My Saab 9-3 had a catastrophic Diesel pump failure and with a repair bill going to be in the region of 1500 I decided I wasn't going to throw away any more cash on it. Despite how disappointed I was at the start of the week when I received the news, I couldn't be happier now!

Two years ago I had a 156 2.0 TS which I let go (after it looked like it was going to start costing me a lot of money!) so I've always felt an affection for the Alfa brand. The one niggle I had was that everyone sings on about how good the V6 engine is so I felt I had to experience it and have brought myself a 156 V6 Veloce. What.a.stunner!

The performance is fantastic and when you drop a gear and let it go the noise is amazing! I just couldn't stop grinning on my way home!

She looks to be in great condition, 2001, only 61K miles, 2 owners, phenomenal service history with Alfarama. Only possible points to sort out are the interior (original owner opted for the cloth recaros rather than leather) and a minor ding on the bonnet but overall, she is a peach!

Now to sort the permanent insurance out and then I'm off out for a day in it...sure I'll still be grinning!
