Wave Hello from Scotland. About to become an alfa owner!

Hello all,

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

Hi all,

thanks for the welcome messages

I have scanned through the scottish thread @paintergirl but only brielfly.

At the moment i am scouring the PH and auto trader forum for my new steed.

The decision still hangs between Italian and...German! i know i know, but its a close run fight.

Both V6, Both excellent cars, just need to see what one tickles the fancy most.

either GTV or Mk1 TT V6.

Hopefully i haven't offended too many here by mentioning Audi....must i make a penance..
