New Alfa owner. Hi!
This is my first post as not only a newbie to this site, but a newbie to the world of Alfa Romeos. Having been a BMW man for the past 7 or 8 years I decided on a change and recently bought my first Alfa (a 2005 Alfa GT 1.9 JTD)............just realised what I've been missing out on! What a great car to look at and to drive. Like most other people (sorry to say) id steered clear of Alfa's due to their bad reputations in the past, but I've gotten more into car maintenance recently and thought I'd get involved in the world of Alfas, at least it would sharpen my car repair skills if it was as unreliable as I'd heard! Well after having the car for three weeks now, and changing the oil filter and air filters (I'm just beginning remember!), and getting used to Alfa's little foibles (electric windows with a mind of their own, dash board lights coming and going as they please etc....) I can honestly say this is the best car I've owned to date. I love it.
Thanks to everyone who posts on this site, I've already learned a load about my car and Alfas in general. Keep up the good work guys and hope I can help someone out in future!
