My name is Rick, and i live in Aberdeenshire in Scotland.
I have been a Honda man for a few years now, restoring a 98 Integra Type R and currently rolling about on a 2.2 VTEC Mk4 prelude.
However i am now at a point where i want something that makes me smile and i can keep for a few years, and the choices were something a bit newer and different.
However the choices ranged from things that were not very Alfa!!
A BMW E90 330i, Z4 3.0, Audi TT v6 or an alfa Brera V6.
However i found all of these didn't make me smile, apart from the alfa, but the road tax was in the highest band, so was a bit hesitant.
However i saw a buyers guide for a 147 GTA in practical performance car, and i really liked the looks of it, so i started having a look on pistnheads at them, and was directed here by a few mwmbers.
So my head has been set on getting a nice 147 GTA or a GTV v6 Q2 Cup, as they have the gorgeous looking last gen alfa V6, gorgeous looks, and are quite reliable (though i am good mechanicaly so dont mind working on them)
So i will be doing my research here, hopefully making some friends, and finding a nice 147\GTV and getting my Alfa Romeo itch scratched (you can't be a petrolhead and not have one!!)
So hello all, and hopefully i can find my perfect alfa
All the best
