Thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Mike, I'm 22 and live in Maidstone, Kent. Currently I don't own an Alfa, but I'm beginning to seriously consider an Alfa GT.
I currently own a Vauxhall Astra SRi XP with the 1.9 CDTi 150 engine. I think the Astras are great cars, and this is my second one, but after a little accident I had recently which has involved the front bumper getting a big crack and losing the ability to hold it's lower grille in place for more than 5 minutes, plus the fact I'm due a service, tax is due at the end of the month, insurance is due soon as well, and my money flow at the moment isn't the greatest, I'm beginning to lose the love for it...
So I'm looking to get a new job soon, somewhere closer to home which will mean I don't have to do 80 miles a day to and from work, so I'll be saving fuel and hopefully won't need to drive a diesel any more... so once I get the job, I think it's gonna be time to say goodbye to the Astra
and say hello to a nice, shiny Alfa
So I hope to gain a bit of info about the Alfas while I'm here, give back what I can to the community (which isn't much at the moment, but hopefully a bit more as I learn more
) and hopefully make a few friends
If and when I get an Alfa, I'll definitely be up for some meets and events if you guys organise anything like that, I'm sure you do. I'm currently the South East regional organiser on Astra Owners Network, so more than happy to help out as well if anything is needed
And for anyone who is interested, here is a quick pic of my Astra
