Glutton for punishment

Hello all,
I'm about to get the keys for my third Alfa, a 2006 Brera 2.2 JTS. I started off about 10 years ago with an early 156 2 litre manual which got me hooked, then the interior leather started to fall apart so I traded it on a 2008 147 selespeed Monza (not a great fan of the selespeed compared to the manual but still a great car), then I got a job with a company car, a Subaru Forrester, so the wife took over the 147 and I have been left driving a boring couch!!!. I couldn't stand it any longer so i've bitten the bullet and put a deposit on the Brera to give my life a little meaning on weekends. Fingers crossed its not a lemon, not much history on the car but it has had the steering rack replaced, which is a bonus and it's pretty cheap (which is a little bit of a worry).
Looking forward to participating in the forum.

Bad news, washed the car for the first time, found that the drivers side fog light plastic trim is missing. The hunt begins for Alfa parts impossible to find in Australia!
Good news, found through a mate a guy that can respray the scratched inside door grabs for next to nothing, pulled them off today and they're off to the shop tomorrow. Much easier to fix than the rubbish 147 and GT door grabs.
