Hello to everyone

I dived into Alfa ownership just under a year ago with an upgraded (Angel Tuning) Brera 3.2 S. I used the forum as a guest to do some research prior and post purchase and just wanted to say thanks for all the useful stuff from members on here. Dealer that i bought from (Perrys Amersham) was great - helpful and attentive. First major trip was to Le Mans 24hr which dented the wallet on fuel (worse than an F355 I borrowed for the same trip the previous year). Managing 14.7mpg at the moment... Average speed though is only 18mph. Town driving.

Have not done much to the car other than adding ipod and bluetooth to the stock head unit and non-standard tyres - Avon ZZ3's 245's.

Had to have the timing chain and ancillary parts replaced when I purchased the car, due to an inocuous yellow warning light on the dash, but Perrys dealt with this without fuss under warranty (bill would have been 3850 out of warranty - ouch).
No problems since though.
