New guy here
I'm new to alfa ownership well I've had my 147 nearly a year now.
I honestly didn't believe in all the chat about alfas being drivers cars giving driving pleasure by the bucket loads. I did however buy into the reliability stories. Well I'm glad I went against my head and bought a 147 selespeed. It's such a good car to drive and its not let me down really. My paddles are broken as I can here something in the steering wheel rattling around and I think one of the oil pipes to the gearbox needs replacing as its a bit oily. I will be changing the paddles myself as it looks pretty easy and I'm hoping the oil pipe can be replaced at my local garage. I sort of regret getting a selespeed as its shocking in traffic but great on the open road. I also hate the cd player. It's the satnav one as is so old I'm going to replace it with an aftermarket unit.
I'm looking forward to further enjoyment and a bit of banter!
