Hi Everybody

Hello All,

I've been an enthusiastic 147 driver for 4 months now and loving every minute of it, once I'd got used to the clutch.
It may only be the 1.6, but it sounds like a big engine, presumably thanks to the 8 spark plugs and the slightly rusty back box. And the quick start 0-55 sprint is quite amazing, really feels and sounds like a go-kart .

Got no pics myself yet - this one's from the ad that I saw before trekking all the way to Hatfield to buy it. Definitely not going there for servicing though - any recommendations for South Birmingham / Solihull ?

See you around
Iain

Re: Hi Everybody

Hi Iain,

I'm even newer to Alfa than you, having owned my 166 for a couple of weeks.

Welcome to the forum, I've found it a nice place to be, with lots of friendly people always willing to give advice and answer questions.

Re: Hi Everybody

Hi Iain,
wellcome, i'm sure you'll enjoy your visits here, as S4M MC says, everyone is quite friendly, and very knowlegeable.

".........Got no pics myself yet - this one's from the ad that I saw before trekking all the way to Hatfield to buy it........."

You say "this one's...." But i can't see a pic or a link to one, am i missing something? or, more likely, am i not using my pc correctly? Me and computers don't really get along

Post some pics in the garage as soon as poss,
cheers, Perc.

Re: Hi Everybody

Hi Perc,
I added the image in the Garage now. I've no idea what happened to the first one - I added it as attachment to the initial post. Maybe file was too big ?

Cheers
