Hello one and all

Have just purchased a 156 Veloce, being the first Alfa i've owned after admiring from afar for a long time, but never quite taking the plunge due to poor reputations on reliability (prepares to duck)

Anyhow, couldn't resist this little beauty especially in the mint condition it's in. Will post some pics once I've picked it up on Saturday

Good luck and I hope it doesn't break-down before you can get her home and take some pics.

Just noticed, I didn't pick the most original username

Well Phil, guess you'll have to go for a 159 instead

Re: Hello one and all

Ok quick update, I picked the car up on Saturday nd absolutely love it. Drives like a dream and guess what? It hasn't broken down (Yay )

Anyway, a quick question for you all

When driving on the motorway at approx. 80 - 85 is it best to put the car into sport, or keep it in City mode for good fuel consumption?

Cheers

Re: Hello one and all

Realistically, I am not sure you'll get an answer to that one as I'm positive no-one on this forum ever goes above 70mph on the motorway!

Re: Hello one and all

I know if I do more than 15mph on some sections of the M54/A5 Westbound the potholes are likely to seriously buckle my alloys!
