Well Happy Italian Rocks !

Hi there everyone,
After years of driving oh so dependable, but oh so boring VW's, I thought I'd give an Italian marque a try. Being a bit short of readies at the time, I picked up a 1995 145 with the Boxer engine, not bad condition, FSH, great body.
Oh my....
Now I know why some folks just lurve their Alfa's
OK, I've had a few problems to sort, like new trailing arms, new discs and pads all round etc, but its just such an amazing little beast.

Just picking up a nice set of alloyts for a song. Only real niggles are the discoloration of the paintwork (lovely shine, but about ten different shades !) and those pesky sensors ( y'know, air bag, lambda probe)
Anyway, I've had the car for 10 months now, so |I'm looking to move on up, to a 146 ti.
Cheers.
