New GTV owner

Hi All,

Used to be on here a few years ago when I had my 55 plate 1.9 GT.

I've now come back to alfa ownership with a 52 plate 2.0 GTV lusso. Picked it up Monday night, then drove it to Scotland Tuesday and back home again Wednesday (from Surrey!) so it's very first trip with me was 1200 miles!!

First impressions are that it's really fun to drive and handles well, but I guess they're just a little bit slow. It wouldn't start when I was in Glasgow, but then after waiting 10 minutes it decided to work again and was faultless the rest of the trip (cruise control would have been nice though!).

Did the whole trip on 2.5 tanks of fuel, which I thought was pretty good.

In true alfa style, there are a few jobs to be getting on with, but I'm looking forward to my ownership!



Character is what you have left when you've lost everything you can lose.

If the starter was turning but the engine wouldn't fire, that's a common intermittent problem with reading the immobiliser code from the chip in the key.

Have a search on here for "CODE light".
