Hello from America
I'm new to Europe and Alfas! So far enjoying both! I'll be living in Holland for the next coue of years and I picked up a 2001 147 with the 1.9 JTD. It is also my first diesel. It's black and has a ton of km's on her (276k). I know scary right!? It is pretty well taken care of and had all service records. Runs strong and for an 11 year old car was a good deal 1600 euros.
So I will be asking tons of silly questions and sharing all the fun experiences I have with this fun little car!
I have already taken a mini road trip to Germany and was shocked at getting 62mpg avg on a 315 mile trip!!!!! That's 3x what my car in the states gets, granted that car has literally over 3x the displacement as this car plus over 4x the power! It was a SRT 8 Magnum for those wondering.
I look forward to getting to know all of you through the great place this forum seems to be!
