I reckon you lot are about as mad as a box of badgers.......I think I'll fit right in (once I get the car to subdue my rampant gealousey
). Things are looking quite encouraging at the moment. My less good looking, but already Alfa owning brother (Fraser) has sent me a rather nice 156 2.0 TS Veloce ad. which just qualifies on the top side of my budget, but with only 15K on the clock has to be a real contender (all I have to do now is hope I can get my cash sorted before it's sold and narrows my choices again). Also, thanks to Lynn and Mr O, your comments have made me re-evaluate the whole Deisel/Petrol debate and not limit myself too much. My fixation came from the car before the Multipla which was a Fiat Stilo JTD which I loved, but as the missus kept pointing out, it only had three doors (can't say it bothered mee too much, but I was a bit less active in getting our youngest in to the baby seat).
