147 1.9 jtd mjet

15th Alfa arrives

Hi guys. Picked up a shiny black 3 door 2003 147 1.9 jtd mjet yesterday. Delighted to be back behind the wheel of an Alfa again. I have owned 14 previous Alfa's from my very first car, a 1981 Alfasud Sprint Veloce, some 23 years ago, through various sprints, suds, GTV, GTV6, 155, 156, and now this. First time for an Alfa diesel, and I have to say I loved the drive home, some 200 miles.
Recently, an expanding family has forced the purchase of more mundane vehicles, but as soon as funds have allowed I've added the 147 and justified it on grounds that we need a second car.
If previous Alfa ownership is anything to go by, I'm not expecting the experience to be without the odd frustration, and wallet emptying weekend, but I've always found that to be part of the fun of driving these great cars.
I look forward to gleaning useful info from you enthusiasts, particularly when it comes to modifications (subtle please, I am in my 40's) and tricks and tips to help with the ownership experience.
