to say hello

a big hello to all members --

I am a Dutchman living in Ireland ( 20 years so as close to being Irish as I can ever be) and have finally made the trip back to Alfa with the 159 diesel after an absence of over 25 years (!) with a variety of other brands...... and it feels good to be back in a real car!!

Look forward to sharing alfa adventures with you lot

Re: to say hello

Thanks Alfamartini

yep, it's good to be back in Alfa -- tested BWM 320 ( nice enough ride but uncomfortable seat/steering wheel position) - Saab 93 ( vectra in more expensive wrapper) - Passat ( very comfortable but didn't feel like driving, more floating along) and once I stepped in the 159 ....... drivers heaven ( even with diesel)
