Wave Alfa newbie Mid Wales

For the last 3 years I've been driving a Citroen C1 on a PCP finance scheme. Great little car, no issues what so ever in 60,000 miles but now the three years are up I have no desire to go back into a finance scheme. 3 years of paying dealers for servicing in order to get a service stamp is enough for me.

Previous to the C1 I ran a '79 Citroen CX. I have only ever owned one italian car, a Fiat Coupe 20V Turbo.

So now with 2 spaniels in tow and a very small budget, I am now the proud owner of my very first Alfa, a 156 2.4 JTD Sportwagon Lusso, in silver with red leather. I am seriously hooked after only a few weeks. The noise reminds me of the 5 cylinder Fiat and the fuel economy is not far off the C1. It makes me giggle every time I drive it (partly because it was so cheap) and pretty much everything works as it should. It is almost the cheapest car I have ever owned, and so far one of the best.

I need to sort out the flat spot which according to my research will be the MAF, and I am on the hunt for some 16" Teledials because I prefer them.
