My name is Johnny and i'm from Dublin.
I am now finally an Alfa owner. I always wanted one but was warned not to get one from friends and family. So, last May, I decided to not listen to family and bought myself a 2003 1.8 156 SW.
Got the car from an Alfa enthusiast and car was taken was really taken care of. The colour is Cosmos Blue and the paintwork is still exceptional.
The past 8 months of motoring have been a joy in the Alfa. I really love how the car handles for a front wheel drive. I do not have the leather interior but still the seats are really comfortable and look good. The small purr from the engine always puts a smile on my face!
Overall I am delighted with the car, and have had only to replace a few bulbs over the last 8 months. My previous car history is Toyota Celica, VW Golf, MR 2 and Fiat Punto. The 156 definitely gives me more pleasure and always look forward to my drive home from work.
Cant see myself driving anything other than an Alfa from now on!
Look forward to picking all your brains for information over the years.
