My First Alfa

Well, I did it - I eventually got fed up with an endless procession of Fords and other such mundane transport taking their turn in my garage and went looking for a car with character.
My search ended not far from home after seeing "my" 147 on a local s/h dealer's website. It took no more than 5 miles of test drive before I was smitten - I just had to have it, so bye bye Mondeo, hello Alfa 147 2.0 TS
2 days later and work colleagues think I've got lockjaw from grinning all the time!!
BTW, anyone know of any nightschool classes where I can learn how to use all the controls? First time out and I roasted myself because I didn't have the hang of the climate controls! The Owners Manual has become my bedtime reading - OMG complicated or what
