Hi from Aus

Hey everyone,

We have bought an Alfa, so here I am!

A lifetime of really only knowing about the supposed Alfa reliability "issues", being the son of motor mechanic with a love of Aussie muscle (and small British Fords but that is another story), my wife thought a Giulietta Progression was a good looking car that could be a good replacement for an aging....Yaris. An awful car to drive.

Firstly, the stroller would not fit easily in the boot, not a great start! But then we sat in the front seats, saw the Italian in the dash...Suddenly we were shopping for a new stroller.

Test drive was subsequently booked. I am the first to drive. After about 5 minutes we are both grinning like crazy. The next thing we know a red Giulietta TCT is on order!

We are both now bitten by the Alfa bug, looking to join the local Alfa club and obviously this forum, so can enjoy the Alfa experience as much as possible.

It is certainly a different experience to buying a Toyota, Mazda etc. I am certainly looking forward to learning as much as possible about the brand and of course driving our new "addition" to the family...
