2001 156 2.4 JTD

Into the fold I fell

Evening people,

Last night the gf and I took a 200 mile round trip to pick up a 2.4 156jtd sportswagon. It's a pre facelift and has a list of things for me to get on with. Pouring rain there and back, but thankfully the return was free of rush hour traffic.

First time Alfa owners, my only previous experience being loving thrashing a friends 145 cloverleaf about for a day.

I've worked on development of JTD engines, so I'm all happy there, the learning curve will be the Alfa personality and attention seeking I think. Had my first proper drive today as the gf drove it back last night and I followed. Engine feels tight but needs some suspension checking and some leaks need addressing. Couldn't see quite how bad they were in the dark and rain last night. Oh well, in for a penny and all that.

Looking forward to reading the forums and learning a thing or two.
