Hello all

Hi to all out in cyberland.
I'm Nick, live in north Hampshire and drive a 155 2.0TS 16V sport. I've had the car since it was six months old and still love the drive. We've experienced a few of the standard problems, alarm, cam belt tensioner failure but can't help but love the car. Currently experiencing some cooling problems which I hope doesn't end up being a head/gasket problem, please look at my posting if you've got any advise...

Girlfriend drive a similiar vintage 146. Had to go for an alfa after driving mine!

A favourite memory was whilst crawling in traffic on the M5 a kid in a car in the next lane holds up a piece of paper on which he'd written "I love your car". Ahhh, makes you feel good don't it?

Looking forward to talking to other alfa owners and hearing their stories, nightmares etc.

Re: Hello all

Hi Nick. Welcome to AO.

It's traditional for new members to share pictures of their Alfa(s) with the rest of us.

BTW - Feed the Yak and he will score!!

Re: Hello all

Hello Roswell and Mr Orange.
I've just uploaded a picture to my garage, but here it is below anyway.

Nice of you to notice the Yak connection unfortunately he is no longer ours.

Re: Hello all

Thanks Alfaholic. I'm not sure the picture does it justice as you can't really see the black speedlines and colour coded sills (as part of the factory fitted sport pack). I've not done any mods, I think it looks sweet as is.
I'll try to upload a side-on piccy, when I've taken one.

I'm a Boro fan mate. Hopefully he'll do really well alongside Viduka.

Re: Hello all

I think he'll do alright alongside anybody. he can seem a bit wasteful at times though, missing a fair proportion of chance and half chances he gets.

Re: Hello all

You do realise that 99% of board members won't have a clue what we're on about don't you.

Footy chat isn't really that popular on here.
