Well Happy My first Alfa

Hello everyone,

I come here as the proud and nervous new owner of an Alfa Romeo - the first I've ever had.

I've gone for a 159 saloon JTDm 2.0 16v TI 170bhp (for now ) in carbonio black metallic. It's 2010 registered and a series 2, and its mint - collect it on Saturday!

I'm keeping my current daily drive for now, a modified ~300bhp Volvo V70 T5 SE;

The Volvo

...and I also have another turbo-charged Swede, a modified ~300bhp Saab 9000 Aero;

The Saab

I likes my big turbo-charged Swedes I do...

So the Alfa is a bit of a departure for me. I hope I enjoy the ownership experience, but one of the first things I think I'll be doing is a remap, so any advice on what's the best route to go down on that front would be appreciated.


2010 159 TI Saloon - black
(My company car now gone - too late to buy it!)
