Alfa 147 2.0TS Lusso Selespeed 3dr in silver - Its a beautiful car to look at and drive. What more can I say
Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
I would say no. I do have a very large soft spot for them but in general, Italian cars overall, I am very passionate about.
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
….do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion?
I remember the first adverts on telly for the 156 when it first came out and I loved it. The 156 went on my wish list from that point. Then the 147 came out and I loved it even more. It is also slightly more practical for me (the pram wont go through the boot opening on a 156 4dr! lol)
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?
I will be very soon when I get round to it and do some reasearch in to the clubs about.

What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?
I'm only new, so im not sure yet. Seems really welcoming place so far though.
If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?
I'd go on ebay, search by all catagories, and just go down the HUGE list and buy what I want as I see it.
