147 Ducati Corse

Hi...new Alfa owner

Recently bought a 147 Ducati Corse for the wife after researching the model, seeing and driving a few examples. I flew over to Edinburgh early one morning and drove her back home, near Wellingborough the same day. Fell in love with the looks especially the wheels and seats! The performance is fantastic from 170hp JTDM and achieving around 45mpg so far. The ride is slightly harsh but the handling is spot on. I am normally into old VWs but the Alfa styling is so much better than any other modern car although maybe not the best quality switchgear, etc.

Our bella has done 59k so thinking about timing belt and water pump soon after reading up on here. Can't wait to wrestle it off the wife and maybe meet up with some locals soon.

Need to fix windscreen washer pump and sort out iPod connection.
