Alfa 159 JTS



My names Nev (short for Neville) i'm a sixty three year old shuffler, originally from Sheffield UK I've lived in new Zealand since the mid seventies. I've owned a few different cars from a Lotus Esprit to a Landcruiser. I also ride a 2008 Yamaha MTO1 for weekend fun and doing long trips in the summer.

I have just traded my Saab 95T and just couldn't face the thought or feeling of buying a Honda or Toyota so against all advice from friends, mechanics, and other soulless folk, i traded my Saab in for a 2008 one owner Alfa 2.2 manual JTS with 68000K on the clock and a full service history. Took delivery today, love it so far. it's simply a feel good thing.

Thought I'd say hello.

Thanks for the friendly posts. Took the car out for a run today, Sunday. Ive never owned an Alfa before but can certainly see what the attraction is. There's just something 'special" in the design. Now to find the link to bit's, there's a couple of things i need. One being a new front bonnet badge, the paint is missing off mine, same thing happened on the Saab i had, one minute it's colored and the next completely silver.
