Got one at last!

Hi

I just collected a new 159 2.4 lusso.

Saved 6k by importing it via a dealer in Gibraltar.

Hopefully won't have problems with servicing or warranty.

Always wanted an Alfa, because of the style, heritage and reputation for fabulous driving.

Finally plucked up courage to ditch the company car and get my Alfa (must be something to do with the impending 40th birthday!)

Re: Got one at last!

Must be feeling pretty 'chuffed' about that decision. What was the company car you separated from to marry such a beautiful Alfa? Regards, Zulu Ferret.

Re: Got one at last!

It was a Vectra 2.0 SRI Turbo.
Fast and reliable, but just awful interior and no soul whatsoever.
Also the tax-man made it as expensive to own as the Alfa!

regards
