New GTV Owner

Hi Everyone,

I've finally made it after wanting an Alfa since before I could drive, many years ago.
I'm now the very smilie owner of a 2000 GTV 2.0 lusso in Blue with tan leather... I Love it!

I love the fact that my lovely wife gave me the money to buy it and she loves it too, so I'm onto a winner!

I brought it near Crawley then drove to Portsmouth for dinner with my Mum. I then drove to Stranraer Scotland for a ferry home to belfast. My face hurt after 7 hours of driving with a huge grin....

My baby made it without any dramas... I think the massive drive (maybe the longest it has ever done) was too much for the battery which died the day I got home, I think it was the original Battery as it was an Alfa Romeo Battery?

All's good now, I have a list of things to do to make her perfect but nothing to serious... The airbag light has come on, I think from me moving seats and cleaning like a mad man lol So its off to see the man who can reset that... ( I might invest in the cables myself soon or add to my xmas list)

I love this forum... Its so informative... Your all Alfa mad loons like me

Cheers Mark
