Thanks everyone for the warm welcome to AO.
Thanks also for the advice offered and I'll be sure to post some pics of my new baby when I get her home on Tuesday
As soon as I test drove her I knew it was the right car. Everything was still really sharp and taught. The steering was crisp and very "pointy" with plenty of feedback. The engine sounded so sweet and really suprised me with the amount of power, even from pretty low down, that she could unleash. The interior is like brand new and the leather is just immaculate - I think that I have picked a good one.
First jobs will be:
1. Wash and wax and polish
2. Replace standard head unit with something a bit better
3. Go and have some fun driving!!!
(not necessarily in that order though
Looking forward to getting to know all you guys (and gals!) better.
BTW Alfa20V, where abouts do you live? I am originally from Sheffield. I have been over here in Oz for a couple of years now but I do kind of miss the old place a bit now and again! It's good to natter with folk from my part of the world - cheers.
