156 JTD Veloce

Wave New to the forum, first time Alfa owner

Hi guys!
Just joined the forum tonight after collecting my 156 this afternoon.

Been a hell of a hectic day, with a couple of appointment's to keep, followed by a 250mile round trip to get it! Only just making it in time to view & pay for it before the dealer's closed!
But boy was it worth it!!

Not the first time I've been in an Alfa, but first one I've owned. Always loved them since back in the days of the 33's, 75's & 164's,
Just made the change from Mondeo ST24 ownership to the 156 2.4 JTD Veloce, and absolutely loving it already! (Loving the 55mpg all the way back up the M6 as opposed to 32 too )

Has one or two problems need sorting, like the boot opening too far & the spoiler hitting the rear window for one and bits of trim missing/damaged etc. but it was a steal, so I expected little things like that before even seeing it, so its all good

MOT on Friday, road tax tuesday, good service & air con regas (if its not leaking ), then a damn good valet & machine polish is the plan of attack for now.

But anyway... I'm rambling now I'll try to upload some pic's soon, and hopefully talk to ya's all soon
