Hello, New member from Sydney
Hello to you all,
I'm Paul, English guy but now working and living in Sydney. I have been out here for nearly a year and decided it was time to buy myself a new car.
I have owned severall types over the years my last was an Audi A5, before that i went to the dark side with a BMW 330d. I am a motorbike enthausiast and always loved owning Ducati's (4 in total my last being a beautiful black 999s).
Anyway I decided that i wanted a new car but also wanted something that stand out from the crowd and I am now the proud owner of an alfa spider 2.2JTS in red. She's a 2007 model and looks and drives superb.
I have always wanted to own an Alfa, but was always put off by the scare stories about un-reliability etc so I guess i will find out now if these are true or not, but i would be interested to hear from any other owners with the same car as mine with regard to any common issues and some easy to do maintenance that can keep her in tip top condition.
But Suffice to say i am totally delighted to be an Alfa owner and he car brings a smile to my face everytime I look at her, I have only owned her for a week but so far I have not made one journey where i have not had the roof down..... ahhh the joys of Sydney weather, finally i can own a convertible where I can get to enjoy having the roof down.
