Wave Ickle newbie here

Hello all,

Hope you don't mind me pestering you for advice! Am switching cars on Sunday from a very old 1988 Audi 80 1.8 petrol to a 97 Alfa 145 1.8 petrol. Am also a very new driver, passed test in September (first time with only 5 minors tho! ) so forgive my naive questions, won't you?!

Am equal parts excited and terrified at the prospect of a new car. This is the first one I've bought myself, the Audi was a hand me down and has blown it's head gasket and has dodgy gears and clutch now. Not worth repairing and a pig to park (no power steering). Hoping I am not letting myself in for more of the same by buying an Alfa! Sorry I know that's evil. But really I think I am in love. Heart is ruling head on this and this little car altho it has done a fair few miles, it looks as if it's been looked after and has been serviced at Alfa dealers most of it's life. It is probably due another one now so I think I shall off and post some questions in the appropriate places, if you don't mind!

My name is Netti btw, pleased to meet you all.

Hi Netti.

IMO, heart should always rule the head in these matters.

Don't forget to put yourself on the map (if you haven't already done so!). http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/vbgooglemapme.php.
