Another rookie

Hello Alfa owners and site members!

My name is Rimantas. Right now I live in UK but originally I'm from Lithuania. Why I registered with this site? Well, I think it is very great community with very huge amount of experience that can be shared between members
Right now I'm driving old Honda Civic but I always wanted Alfa Romeo. First of all - design. Interior and exterior is something that outstands other manufacturers' daily cars. Specifications. Even in early 156 models there was a lot of benefits that other manufacturers (like Audi, WV etc.) can not provide for the same reasonable price. Also heard a lot of reviews from users, friends that 156 has good rust protection instead of other European or Japan cars (Honda is not an exception). I think this is really big advantage if you live and drive in climate zones like UK and Lithuania
Engines. 2.4JTD 20V engines are good built and reliable. Of course - all cars, all manufacturers has their own weak spots but I think a lot of depends from owner and his point of view to his car.
So all this knowledge based my own opinion about this manufacturer. And that's why in future I'll try to own 156 2.4JTD 20V SW
Any comments and correction about my knowledge is really appreciated

P.s. sorry for my english - it's not my native language
