Wave Hello!!

Hello!

Im a newbie to the site - but I have to say I am impressed! I might actually learn stuff about my car here!! I am afraid I am a girl who knows very little about cars - I saw mine at the garage, thought it was gorgeous, took it for a test drive then bought it (its an 04 147 Selespeed in Alfa Red!)! Someone asked me about the alloys and my reply was - big and shiny

Anyway, I am looking forward to a laugh on here and good advice from peeps who have a clue!!

Re: Hello!!

Gollum - I get more looks when I am in the Type R, and it is like sh$t off a shovel, and faster than the 147!! I like driving the Type R (mostly when my other half is offshore as he doesnt like me driving it!!) if I want a wee pose and to really put my foot down on the duel carriage way, but the Alfa is definately nicer to drive, more comfy (heated seats and all that!!), and nips along at a fair speed too!!

I think the Alfa is a more classy looking car, but I do like the Type R too. Oh I dont know - I'll say the Alfa cos its mine all mine!!!!

The Type R does !!!! off all the wee boy racers round here in their modified Corsas mind you (specially being a girl - ooohhhh they hate that!!, so for sheer "fingers up" to them it's better than the Alfa!!

Where's my Pradas?

Re: Hello!!

Hi welcome to AO

Oh but you gotta love the Alfa far more than the civic!!!

The speed of 147 dont matter, its a much better car to be seen in .....nothing wrong with the civics but they are far too common!

And you dont have to beat the boy racers to show your cars better!
