New Person but not new to Alfa
Hi Ive come back to the Alfa fold after being away for a short while. I had an Alfa 164 Cloverleaf 24V for a couple of years up to 2008. Since then I (and my wife) have had various cars some memorable ones such as a BMW E39 530 (great car, lacking soul), Mercedes E220 (old, classy, great cruiser, no fun), a Mini Cooper S (loved that Car) to a 2011 C class 220cdi (slow, comfortable, laden with gadgets and not particularly sad to see it go). There were others but in between all that I had a 166 3.0 24V that broke its gearbox and suffered from a number of other maladies (great great car that I was sad to see go).
So Alfa stuck in my mind and in particularly the V6. My 164 is probably the best car Ive owned and I have had, new, old, since and before.
I drive a Citroen c5 160 Tourer day to day and we were looking for a car to replace my wifes company car. I decided that an Alfa V6 had to grace our driveway once more. So, three weeks ago an Alfa 156 V6, 6 speed, in beautiful condition, arrived. It really has become a member of our car elite since and I drive it whenever I can get the keys (though not on the 50 mile journey to work too often).
There are bound to be problems I will need help with and so here I am.
