I am the proud new owner of. 2004 Alfa 147 2.0. I love it. I had it serviced as soon as I bought it (cost as much as the car did) and, after driving "sensible" Korean cars for a few years, I am so happy to be back in a driver's car! Only a few issues left to fix (one headlight pointing at the sky and an external temperature sensor that results in an intermittent "ice on road" message and non functioning of the air con in the middle of our summer).
But, it is FUN!
This site really helped during the buying process and no doubt will during the owning process!
