Help Mid Life crisis!

Hi everyone,
My name is Karen and I'm in my early 50s and have just bought my first Alfa as a replacement for my aged and dearly loved 1993 Citroen BXTZD turbo estate. My mad mid life crisis purchase is a 2001 2.5 24v V6 sportswagon in black with over 100k on the clock! Loving it so far despite a couple of niggles which will be mentioned soon! Be gentle with me guys! I know nothing!!

Hello and welcome

I used to have a 1984 BX16RS, possibly one of the best cars I've ever owned

Well I was rather hoping this will restore my youth like a magic potion and keep me young! Then I might live to 100! Sadly it lounges outside at present with a flat battery and needs a new water pump (with metal impeller) and therefore a new cambelt too! I think my status will shortly be matching yours! Karen
