Another grist to the mill...

Hello Alfa chaps...This is my first post as an Alfa owner etc.

First off I would like to thank AM [nlckname should be Dawn with those initials] for a manual activation of my account [I was having problems with logging on, which she sorted out].

Anyway, I would like to say hello and fare thee well to my fellow AR owners and, in advance, to say sorry for the posts I make that have been answered 19 billion times before.

So, I bought a 147 1.6 TS Lusso TI [I have no idea what 'TI' means, or indeed 'Lusso']. I have no idea why I bought this car.

My car ownership for the last 10 years is as follows: 318 i; 535; Audi A4 1.8 T [up to now, the best road car I have driven]; and a Toyota Surf 4x4 [needed it for work].

Well, to cut a long story short, obviously I drove German. Now I'm driving Italian!, and I'm very impressed. This version of the 147 has a very hard ride [like the Audi] at the expense of comfort, and is under-powered, but it handles and corners like it's on rails...

Keep the faith,

Welcome to AO Shabby & congrats on the Ti
The TI is an option trim pack which included 17" alloys, lowered suspension, darkened headlining & a few other bits & pieces.

If you want any advice, info or help check out the Tech Lounge Alfa 147, 156 & GT - Alfa Romeo Forum
