First time Alfa Owner...eventually.

Hello one and all,

Having spent many months on these boards, I picked up my ph1 GTV v6 on Saturday.

As you are probably all aware, the weather was shocking and it made my collection day...eventful! I left Biggleswade at 3:30 am and got to Glasgow at 7 minutes to 5....(the post office shut at I just managed to get it taxed) having visited London, Preston, Manchester, York and Edinburgh to change trains on the way because of the floods!

I then drove all the way to Nottingham as I was seeing the Twenty20. One of the best drives of my life with certainly the best soundtrack!

I know people say (wrongly sometimes..) that Alfas can be hard work, but seeing as collecting the thing was that difficult, i'm prepared for anything!

Anyway, i'm based in Cambridge - hope to see some of you around and about!

Well believe it or not virgin are offering 49 (3 pounds cheaper than standard?!) pound first class single tickets from london to including my train from home and the taxi to the garage it was about sixty quid. Shame about the 14 hours of travelling!!

Was worth it!
