Hello to all!
So, first a little about me.. I'm a 31 year old married dad of one, with a love of pretty much anything with an engine. That said, I'm no mechanic, and often have to refer to how-to's and forums before embarking on any major work.. and I know my limits - that's what mechanics are there for!
And my car history.. growing up in Essex I had my fair share of "fast" Fords (well, they weren't really were they, but in your late teens everything you drive is supersonic in your capable hands). Having grown up a little since then, I've been through the usual petrol-head milieu of imported Japanese MR2s, 3-series BMWs, a Lexus IS200 and even an old Range Rover V8.
But in amongst all that I've owned three Alfa Romeos; A 147, a 156, and the latest and current 159 3.2 V6 JTS Q4 Sportwagon - which I adore.
So that's me in a nutshell, make of it what you will. I'll look forward to swapping tips and experiences as time goes on! But alas I'm sad to say I must now post in the technical forum for some advice regarding a small misfire, but more about that there...
All the best,
