I think I am running the only UK registered Zoe Yellow 145 1.8TS in France.
This is my second Alfa, the first being a 155 which is ran into the ground after numerous fuel pump problems.
Previous Italian cars, Fiat X19 (Okay - I was a student), Fiat Croma (I had a job by then), Fiat Panda (Okay - it was a second car). The along came the 155 and I was hooked. Okay there was a Saab and a Jeep in between, but they were sensible.
Returned to the fold when I bought a brand new (preregistered 2001) 145 1.8TS. Only had it in the UK a few months before I left the UK and now live in Paris. It has had a few prangs due to inconsiderate and ruthless Parisien drivers and a few keyings (this seems to be an epidemic in Paris). It has now been resprayed twice, but no sooner do I repair it than somebody gives it a knock. Still, it works very well and is very reliable (apart from the erratic idle which I have posted).
