My first Alfa .....

Hey everyone,

I'm new to here, having just recently purchased my first Alfa Romeo - off the back of a divorce settlement! It's a 159 1.9 JTDm Lusso S/W, 68K, with cream leather, roofrails and a sunroof. Have to say, it's lovely. But it has a definite drink problem (34mpg), which I believe is not unusual, nor is the occasional slight stutter at light throttle and low revs. Anyway, we'll see how we get on.

For the record, as this is my first Alfa, my previous cars in 30 year of motoring have been, in order of ownership:

SAAB 96 V4 (1974)
SAAB 99T 3-dr (1978)
SAAB 99T 3-dr (1977)
SAAB 900 T16S (1987)
SAAB 900 Aero S (1991)
VW Passat Estate (1999)
Volvo V70 2.4 D5 SE (2002)
Peugeot 306 D-Turbo S (1997)

Looking forward to being part of the community.
