Hi

Hi all,

Thanks to those who responded to my initial post in the technical forum, about time I formally said hello. (and waxed lyrical about the amazing performance and handling of my new 156 )

I have just purchased a red V plate JTD 156, pictures attached below. The only thing I can say is "wow!". I have driven and owned quite a few cars in my time, but this is the closest to a sports car I've ever had. The handling is pinpoint, I can go round corners at 10 -15 mph faster than in my 04 Leon TDi, and the sound!!!! Like no diesel I have ever driven.

Up until now my Leon was my favourite ever car (with the exception of my brief forray with an X-Type Jag), but the Alfa has blown it away.

Glad to be in the Alfa club, and finally see why you all do it

Re: Hi

Correct, all Alfas are very good looking cars. Just need a nice set of Alloys, and my Angel-tune to finish off.
