First Alfa. WONT be my last !!

Hi all, I am new to Alfas as the title says,

Thought i would get one as a faster, more practical and economical approach to driving. Got a 147 1.9JTDm Lusso. I am used to Land rovers and have a Defender 110 and Tax exempt Series 3 along with a million spare parts (literally), plus 2 scrap discoveries. Also got mini (one day i will do something with it(maybe))

Although having owned the alfa for only a couple of weeks it certainly wont be my last, insurance was high-ish (im 20), but its well worth it, having seen no other Alfas whilst driving around in mine, i feel quite privileged, especially as all i see is the like of BMW and Audi's of which i must say i make sure i am always in front of

Love the diesel engine, real grunting noise in 2nd gear. I spend all day looking forward to driving it and already looking at upgrading some stuff. 50MPG seems to be what the computer says (not sure how accurate!!??) so far only used for short journeys, will test it out in a weeks time with long distance driving.

So a big hello to all, plenty more posts to come

And lastly this has to be the friendly and best website ever
