Why did I wait?
Why did I wait so long before coming to Alfa? My last two cars were both Shoguns, a thirsty 5 door 2.8 diesel and an even thirstier 3.5 V6 petrol. I popped over to England to look at a couple of Germans, a staid and sober Swedish, and was offered a test drive in a 2008 159 sportwagon, the 2.4 JTDm with the automatic box.
It was love - if not quite at first sight, then certainly in the first couple of miles. All the buttons & stalks are a whole new learning curve.
Only one regret - I've waited until almost my 65th birthday to find the car I'd always deserved!
