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!
