Finally changed the badge
Thought I'd finally join the site after years of anonymous browsing now that we finally have an Alfa in the household.Until now we've been Fiat only, but with the unexpected death of our last two cars within a few weeks of each other, we're joining the Alfa collective.
Needing a car quickly, and cheaply we picked up a 04 plate 147 JTD 8v Lusso in need of a bit of TLC. It's missing it's engine under tray and parcel shelf (perhaps the previous owners didn't like large, flat pieces of car?), and needs a few niggles with the gear changes sorting. Other than that the engine and steering seem flawless, the suspension has a couple of occasional knocks but they sound like they could be fixed with new drop links. There is very little wrong with the car in anything other than a slightly annoying way. Next step give it a full service, then start fixing the gremlins.
As the forum's tag line goes - am I addicted yet? Oh Yes!
