My name is Mark and I've always admired Alfa's but never really had the courage to own one.
I'm aware (as most people are) of their past reputation for being both un-reliable and quick to fall to pieces.
I've done a little homework and people tell me they are much better now, which is good, as I've just taken the plunge.
Picked myself up a stunning 147 1.6 TS Lusso on an '04 plate, in Alfa Red.
It was a purchase "From the Heart" rather than one "Of the Head", because after I test drove it, I had to have it.
I've always heard it said that...
Your not a proper Petrolhead until you've owned an Alfa, I can now better understand the meaning of that statement. I'm not a massive petrolhead by any means, but I do like a nice car and also ride bikes.
Here's to a, hopefully, long and happy ownership.
Look forward to hearing from you guys, and learning (and also hopefully sharing) some information.
Best Regards to All.
