Hi everyone. Never been part of a discussion forum before but here goes. After changing from the most boring and soulless car in history (an automatic BMW 318) I am delighted to be driving my 1st Alfa. Its a 156 2.0 TS - in great condition with low mileage. Delighted to say everything is going superbly so far, such a lovely car to drive, it genuinely brings a smile to my face. My old man had a 33 1.7 cloverleaf Sportwagon back in the day which I thought was the most fantastic car - never gave him trouble (although he really did look after it) and thats where my admiration started. Now I have become an owner myself I know I will never drive another type of car. Living in Co Kildare, Ireland, some great back roads that luckily arent too pot holed yet.
