Thumbs Up 2nd time owner, first time poster

Hi everyone,
I've just upgraded from a 2002 147 Selespeed to a 2005 147 GTA Monza. Got a pretty good deal on the GTA but it came with a few issues that I'm still working through...hence the main reason I joined, to learn from everyone else.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the warm welcome. Looks like you have all been part of this forum for a long time...that's a lot of posts! Finding the site very helpful in sorting out a few issues with the car. Theres a lot of knowledge and experience around and so many people willing to help.
I'm not sure how many GTAs there are in Aus Starkers. Certainly not a lot. There generally only seem to be about 20 for sale at any time. I got the Monza version too and I've heard only 10 of the 100 are here in Aus. I got 98/100 and I saw 96/100 for sale last week.
I love the car, and Alfas in general but theyre complex and certainly not cheap to service and repair. Once I get these issues sorted out I'm looking forward to really enjoying the driving experience.

Thanks again for the welcome.

Thanks n13roy. Learning heaps already. Can anyone recommend any good utube videos on servicing and repairs for the 147 GTA? Anything general is good. Trying to expand my knowledge before messing with it.
