Idea Hello to all

Hi everyone

Joining here because I am a newcomwer to the Alfa experience - well actually, I will start the Alfa experience next wednesday when I pick up an Alfa 156 1.9 JTD 140 HP multivalve - assuming i can remember the name that long.

I'm probably having a late mid-life crisis, and hoping it won't be a disaster. Please confirm my head would have followed my heart anyway!

It will be my first ownership of an oilburner, although I've driven a Passat for a lengthy period previously, and i'm looking forward to the economy and the grunt which is always absent from the 2 ltr Omega autos I've driven for the last 12 years.

I suspect the reliability will be about the same?

Wish me luck!

Mike

Hes being clever, ***** as in ***** and Omega, ***** being the first letter of the Greek Alphabet Omega being the last.

Meaning that Alfas are diametrically opposed to other lesser Omega vehicles.

Hope I got that right Mike and welcome to the forum.

Re: Hello to all

Welcome Mike - you will be glad to have taken the plunge and will (almost) never regret having an Alfa.
