Wave Alfa convert

Hi everyone

Picked up my first Alfa last week, a 159 1.9JTD Lusso...after a hectic 7 days and 750 miles I think it's a cracking car - I can only hope it stays that way!

Having your teeth pulled out with a pair of pliers is better than that!

And why not? Great way to test if the air-con is working, and think what a pleasure it will be driving all those miles in the 159!

Re: Alfa convert

Glad to hear you experienced Alfa drivers keeping me in check when I naively think 1000 faultless miles must mean the car is bullet proof.

I'd happily attempt a transcontinental journey given the chance, but given the realities of family/work I'm afraid I'll have to leave that to Clarkson and co....(which at least avoids me getting stranded on a lay by half way to Damascus, trying to call the AA!)
