Wondering about my sanity

Hello Everyone,

I have been wanting to buy an Alfa for most of my adult life. But you know how it is, you read things, you talk to people, you change your mind. What kind of person wants to suffer through that kind of unreliability? Well, me apparently. I am about to take delivery of my first Alfa. A beautifully maintained 2001 Series 2 GTV 3.0 V6. A genuine thing of beauty.
I'm looking forward to chatting with the veterans of this site about their experiences with their Alfas and, nothing personal, hope that I don't share some of them in mine.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I've had a bit of look around and it seems that most people post here to ask for advice about break-downs or trouble so I'm hoping not to speak to many of you for a long time.
I'm at Tullamarine Airport in Melbourne about to get on a plane and collect my new car. Sadly, I'll then be required to drive it nearly 900km back to my house. Oh well, its a dirty job, but someone will have to do it.

Now thats what I call a return journey home! You will know the car inside out by the time you get home.

Enjoy, sounds like a cracker of a car.
