New 147 owner!!


My name is Jakub and I am a soon-to-be undergraduate student in the UK. About 3 and a half hours ago I bought a silver-grey 2007 147 1.9 JTD 16v Distinctive. It may be an oil-burner, but it's an Alfa... MY alfa. The ride back to my home was the most special time behind the wheel of a car that I have ever experienced. As I took it for a spin on the motorway, I was overtaken by a 156 with the 2.5 V6, and I felt a special connection with the car; that Alfa magic...

The car has 91 000 km on the clock, has been maintained properly with all the services done by an official alfa dealer. It drives great, BUT (you knew this was coming...) it feels very under-powered when I'm below 2000 rpm (), which I think might be the problem with the turbo being stuck in the high-boost position as I read on this forum. A minor glitch that I plan on rectifying as soon as I get proper insurance. Aside from that, I'm very happy with it, as it is my first ever car and it cost me just under 6,800 euro (thank heavens for rapid depreciation...).
