Hey all

James here. 2006 Alfa 159 JTS Sportswagon owner.
I'm currently living in West Australia and bought my 159 in Melbourne in November last year and had it shipped over.
I've previously owned 3 separate Alfetta GTV 2.0 models(83, 81 and then an 82 model) and didn't think I'd ever drive anything else. But due to piglets putting a defective sticker on anything over 25 years old these days it was costing too much to constantly get it put over the pits and, very reluctantly, had to upgrade. Apart from desperately missing RWD and having never been a fan of power steering(pet hate) I couldn't be happier!
No issues so far except for the air con fan dying but the rest of the air con still works so not a big problem to fix.
On a positive not; I've managed to bring my wife over to the dark side and she's recently purchased a 2009 147 twin spark, which she loves to bits. Plus it's nice to have a little hot hatch to jump in every now and then after driving the 1.5 tonne wagon can feel a little heavy compared to my good old evenly weight distributed coupes of the past.
But that's me for the moment.
