Hello all, fairly new to this site and has been a great help to me, it is good to see so many like minded (mad) people out there. I have owned many cars both new and old not one an Alfa so far until now, a '03' 147 TS and I just love it. Have already met some of is quirks but I was ready and I still have a smile on my face. Maybe its when you hammer it into a tight bend come out the other side with the revs going past 5K+ with that terrific roar, it just feels that it wasn't designed to do anything else, yes the door pocket is damp the wheels are so corroded it is not true! I could go on but won't. I will be posting a problem shortly which is self induced anyway. All the best.
