Morning all..

Morning all,

I've joined the forum as a potential Alfa owner, currently having lustings after a certain 3 door hatchback sporting a little 'GTA' badge on its pert rump! Have always owned diesels, (currently a tweaked Fabia vRS which is great), but feel the time is nigh to cut my mpg by half and not have to use the cd player so much!

Will no doubt be popping up from time to time picking everyone's brains. Off to go trawl through the archives to see what nuggets I can glean.

Merry Chrimbo
Duncan

as the owner of a pert rump i can say in all honesty that your trying to cut your mpg in half are somewhat optimistic! about 3/4's will do it

Re: Morning all..

Hi Duncan!

Excellent choice for your next car, and I can confirm that Alfa 3.2 V6 vocals delete the need for a CD player whilst on the move. As for fuel consumption you'd best be prepared for financial strife unless you can restrict throttle pedal movement to about 1/2"

Anyway, here's my own pert GTA rump....

Re: Morning all..

Thanks for the welcome folks!

Escaped from the family for a minute with my whisky to check out AO!

Hopefully the financial strife should not be too much as most of my mileage is covered by my employer. Although the allowance will probably only cover petrol and not servicing, tyres etc as it does for most 'normal' cars!!

However, insurance is probably going to be interesting..

AlfaMartini - very pert it is too, looks great in the white, never seen one in that colour in the flesh or for sale before, guess they must be quite rare?
