G'day from Australia!

Hi All Alfa Owners
Having already made several posts I thought I'd better introduce myself...
First time Alfa owner with a near-mint 159 JTD Ti purchased 3 weeks ago with 18,500km on the clock. So far so good...
Am already learning to tolerate some of the quirks of Alfa ownership. Even enjoying them a little. It's like playing lottery sometimes, ref. auto rain sensing wipers and Blue & Me functionality.
Am also learning of some of the "hidden" features which continue to provide a daily dose of excitement.
Finding Blue & Me a little (very?) frustrating however and may swap out for an aftermarket unit. Still a topic of debate as I'm really not a "replace factory fitting" kind of guy. As I've read, and agree, the phone pairing and usage is first class. The media player not so much.
And finally... I'm a little concerned and think a visit to my local doctor is in order. I'm having real trouble taking my eyes off "her". "She" is one of the most beautiful cars I've laid eyes on. I haven't told my wife yet of my growing infatuation but she will find out soon enough and I will be resigned to the garage!
Anyway better go and have another look...
Thanks in advance for all your sage advice.
