Hello everyone, another new alfa owner here, from the cold rainy north east of Scotland

Finally managed to get myself one, after years of wanting one but never finding a half decent one in my price range, i managed to pick up a 147 1.6 lusso, really happy with it*, probably the nicest car to drive Ive ever owned

Sadly already got a list of things to do on it (knew that was coming didn't you)... normal 147 foibles though, timing belt, tensioner's and variator, power steering pipes are leaking, have some erroneous lights on on the dash, and the "canbus proxy alignment" needs done and worst of all corrosion in the near side rear sill that will need fixed before its next test (its not the worst I've seen, the metal felt thin so i poked it, with predictable results.... was pretty annoyed but then it is a 10 year old Alfa and i should know better than poking at suspect looking sills by now)

anyway seems nice on here, and no doubt ill be asking some newbie questions in the technical section before soon (i am a trained mechanic but its always nice to ask people who have worked on things before)
