Hello from Essex!

Hi, just thought I'd finally introduce myself!

I've recently acquired a late 2000 156 V6 2.5, Nuvola Blue, presumably SP3, as it's got black Momo leather, 16" teledial wheels, carbon dash, etc? Initial impressions are very favourable.....my first Alfa since a brief acquaintance with a 'Sud back in the early '90s. It's replaced a Saab 9000 Aero which I'd had for 6 years.....I wasn't quite sure how the 156 would compare, since the Aero had very quick in-gear performance ("faster than a Testarossa", as the advertising went at the time!). But, the Alfa just seems much more "lively" across the board, which I must say is a very pleasant surprise!

I'm in East Essex, and it would be good to hear of any other Alfa aficionados in the area, local specialists, etc.....thanks!

Hi Ya and welcome, I am new here myself and I am in the Basildon area. I know of a good specialist called Power Italia based in Laindon PowerItalia - Fiat Coupe & Alfa Romeo Specialist I have not yet used them but they come highly recommended from a friend of mine who used them for the 2 Alfa's he has had.
