Hey hey hey y'all

Hey Everybody,

After much deliberation I decided to bite the bullet and buy an Alfa. Basically because they stand out amongst all the other run of the mill cars out there and everybody I spoke to who has owned an Alfa has said its the most fun car they've had even it it was unreliable.

I went for a 147 JTDM 16V Lusso as I decided that for all the obvious diesel reasons. In true Alfa style I managed to blow the lower turbo hose driving back from the dealers Oh well a new set of silicones later and I was up and running.

Welcome to AO.
BTW I disagree on the unreliable. They are as 'un' reliable as the next car in my experience

Well I certainly hope so. I figured that the time to own an Alfa is while I'm young and can afford it if things do go wrong.

Never had any reliability issues with mine

Welcome aboard mate!

Now that I'm here: allow me to draw your attention to the Folding at Home initiative (Please join the AO Folding@Home Team!) some of us AO'ers are involved in. Maybe you can spare us a few CPU cycles

Whatever you do: enjoy your stay!
