Well, after much humming and hawing over what to replace my Skoda Fabia with I have gone and bought an 05 Alfa GT JTDM. This decision was helped along by INS147 up in Invernesshire, whether he admits it or not
I needed something diesel, roomy, large boot to take lots of fishing tackle, and classy and the only thing on the market that ticked all the boxes was the GT. So I looked hard on the interweb and was quite willing to drive to England to get one when one popped up in Aberdeen, half an hour away - 05 plate, 54k, red with black leather. So before I knew what was going on I had the money sorted and I collected the car yesterday. Is it normal for Alfa owners to just stand and look at their cars...?
I didn't actually want a red on when I started looking, but I saw a couple on Autotrader and thought they were pretty and when I clapped my eyes on this one it was love. It sure does stand out
On the phone to INS147 last night we realized that I bought a red Italian car on the Monza GP weekend - very cool!
I live on the Angus Aberdeenshire border, between Brechin and Laurencekirk. Wife, no kids, two dogs, approaching half century, good job, about sums it up. I dare say I'll be asking lots of questions on the techy forum as well as the ICE forum (bit of a shock going back to CDs!) but I do know how to use the search function so I'll keep the stoopid questions to a minimum if I can. So far the forum has been a godsend in answering loads of stuff.
Right, I'm off out for a play in my new toy.
