Thumbs Up First Alfa - 147 GTA


I did post in here already today but it didn't seem to save it... GRRR!

Just bought my first ever Alfa - A Black 147 GTA (Q2)

Flew to Edinburgh last week to collect it and drive it back to SW London (7.5hours in total)

Ive only really owned VAG cars in the past - most recently my '01 Audi TT 225

So the whole Alfa scene is completely new to me!

I've (luckily?) got an Alfa Specialist within pushing distance which is one of the main reasons i bought it (if the horror stories are to be believed) - Alfacraft - London Alfa Romeo Specialists if you're local

well, here she is!

Gonna leave it fairly standard.. might stick it on some FK coilovers and put some spacers on the rear wheels.

What stud pattern / center bore are these?

She's a beauty for sure!

You must love cleaning your cars to have had a second black one!

As long as you follow the service intervals to the letter and get the small issues sorted early, it will be fine as far as reliability goes.

ah my car before the TT was also black..

Euro Styled MK4 Polo 16v..

been looking at getting a quad pipe exhaust made up for it too, what are the benefits of going for this:

over a custom (powerflow for example) job? can i get the grill cut-out separately anywhere?

Great looking car you've got that exhaust is the 1 i have fitted on mine . I can PM you a couple of pictures of it when i got home tonight so you can see it more clearly/close up etc if you want me to?

I see you are in london, tonight there is an italian car meet at the Ace cafe which is always good, if you can/ want to go i will be there so you can even have a listen if you like ill look out the link to the thread for more details

Here's the link (Ace Cafe London - Italian Night)

Might be an 8C there aswell if the weather stays good

Driving fast got me into trouble, driving faster got me out of it
