First day at school

First post today - to say hello!

Have recently come in from the automobile wilderness and joined those in the know. Hopeful of a meaningful relationship with my Alfa (nothing kinky, mind).

Expect I'll find way around the place in due course. The threads on this forum made essential reading for me before buying - helped me in that decision to go for a Sportwagon.

Toodle pip.

Re: First day at school

Welcome on board and nice to see we already helped you

Anymore arty pictures of your 156? Because the one in your avatar looks promising

Thanks for the welcome Selespeed, like a real newbie I was hitting the refresh button and looking for that first reply!

I do have a few other pictures of my new baby, nothing arty though, just knocked this cropped pic up quickly for the avatar - thought it was instantly recognizeable and captured the spirit of the 156.

Looks like a great forum btw.

Sorry GC, no dinner money on me - 'cos this week I'm mostly bringing a packed lunch (PB & banana sarnies).

Thanks also (to everyone) for your collective welcomes. I'll organise some pics (I know it's the rule for newbies) - just need to master the reduction process to get the micro pin-head size pics needed. Last week had a round of EBS Bilsteins fitted (shocks only) - found the handling and ride rather barge-like after 2 years behind the wheel of a Celica 190 VVTL-i ( sorry - am I allowed to mention those in this forum?!).

I thought I'd bought something a bit exclusive - if they're that common, I'm going to have to sell......... .........woman round the corner drives a very tidy looking 145 (mid met blue). Wonder if she knows about the forum - have to find out.

Of course!..........everyone else's kids are always worse behaved than yours (not yours literally.......I mean I wasn't insinuating you had fathered children or anything, if you haven't.......er, you know what I mean....,, although looking at your rider at the end - you probably don't!
