newbie says hi

im just waiting to pick up my 156 1.8 turismo on tuesday. didnt know much about alfas till i saw this car and fell in love with it, its showing 38000 miles on a `02 plate, leather interior and seems quite hi spec. its in great nick i`m just wishing now i`d gone for a bigger engine. but it seemed quite nippy when i tested it although i`ve gone up from a 1.6.

anyway, hello to all and i`ll post some pics after i`v picked it up and took some

Thumbs Up Re: newbie says hi

You'll Love it mate. Once caught, that's it for life. It was a 164 V6 that got me (Me Dad's car, Blame him,....or not). Every time you hear the noise of one of them something twangs in your head

First time you take it above 5k all will become clear..... same is true of all of them. Have Fun (you will)

get some piccies on, i finally have (okay 1)

Hello and welcome.

I agree with James76, once you take her over 5000rpm it makes everything worthwile
