156/C70 T5/V70 R

Sort of hello again.

I joined almost 2 years ago but haven't been back here until today. My wife is the Alfa owner with a facelift 156 1.8ts Veloce, and I really like the car but have a Volvo addiction. However, I'm thinking of a diesel car in the next few months as I currently run 3 guzzlers, with a V70 R, C70 T5 and a 854 T-5R.

So I'm used to a bit of power but as I do 25k+ a year, I need I need to cut my fuel bills. The 156 2.4jtdm seems a good compromise between power and economy, as I'm currently used to 25-30mpg.

Welcome mate - get that 156

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!
