16th July 2005 - I bought my first Alfa

After many months of pondering my next move in the motoring world.
I have bought a 1998 GTV in Grey (is there a posh title for the met grey?).
60k miles and an extensive history, the history was at main dealers plus Italian specialist Kirkhill Auto Services in Aberdeen (does anybody on here use Kirkhill?).
In the 200 miles I have done I think I am rating her higher than the Fiat Coupe that proceeded.

I am looking forward to asking many questions in the coming months and years.

Alex

Congrats on your decision - nice to see a new convert - but any Fiat coupe owner would have always been considered part of the gang anyway

Pics attached (hopefully), not the best quality as I used my phone. Plan to get some better ones in the near future.

I think it looks too light for Grigio Africa. And wasn't that colour only used on the 147 and 156?
