I am Carlos Fandango.
Newby Alfa virgin here, in Hereford UK
Just picked up my year 2000 156 2.0TS in silver today.
Bought it locally off an old guy, who has owned it for 10 years, I had to endure hours of his going through the service file, he kept a receipt for every wiper blade, and litre of oil, by the look of it. It has been maintained very well, and drives accordingly.
Very pleased with it, a real pleasure to drive, and a great feeling of solidity and quality.
I have owned many Japanese cars, Supras, Soarer, 300ZX, Legnum, 2 x RX8 (get the picture!), but must say this Alfa represents superb value for money, in comparison to the £1000s I have spent on premium Jap stuff
Just a few little jobs to do, I have no reversing lights, and must replace the audio, (it is the original tape player!). And the NSR door handle is broken.
Looking forward to tomorrow, as I have a 100 mile round trip to do, much of it along winding roads.
