Alfa 159 JTDM

At long last

Yee haa, I finally got an Alfa. A diesel, but a 159 lusso in black is the car for me. I almost bought a 75 v7 many years ago but common sense and a realisation it would kill me in fuel alone stopped me.

I look forward to years of fun with possibly the only car brand I truly desired... The journey has started out well, one return to the dealer only for the fault to be easily sorted. I must admit I listen all the time, thinking the worst. But I have found its just "character" and I am over nervous I do worry about my sanity though, do I really hear little groans and gurgles late at night as I walk past? yes, thank god someone else heard the gurgle from the fuel tank as it cooled down.

Am I mad? is it a love affair? I think we all must be the same. The good news is the missus loves it too (she was indulging me when I got it I think), so this time next year there could be two "talking to each other".

Your missus loves it? She will not when they ask you where is your darling and you say: She sleep in garage!
Congrats on your car!
