Hi

Just loggin' in for the first time to say hi.

I have just got a 2000 2.0L GTV lusso - my 6th Alfa having previously had a SUD, 164, two 166's and a 156 JTD which I still use as my car for business. The 166's and the JTD have all had to do 30-35K per year - the 166's did 70K+ each and neither had even the tiniest problem - and as for the JTD - well I am planning on 150K. It's the best car for business I have ever owned. 46mpg, goes like stink (it's a 5 pot) and sounds great too. I think all this "Alfas are unreliable" stuff is b******s.

Anyway the GTV is fab.

Re: Hi

HI Malcy and welcome. Hmm, you own a petrol AND a diesel. That means you can join in the current debate with a large slice of credibility

Thanks for the welcome.

OK - I'll get some pics done. Both cars a bog standard - but hey since when did either of them need bits added to make them look good?
