Hi all, another newbie just joined!
Been lurking around for a while, usually when I have a problem with my 156 and want to see what others do in the same situation!
Decided to take the plunge after my last episode, just over a week ago, when my key fob wouldn't turn the alarm off, but I'll get into that elsewhere on the forum.
I say I've been lurking for a while but I actually bought the car from Veloces in Barnet, north London about 10 years ago, when it was just 2 and a bit years old. It's a 2002 156 SW 2.0 JTS Veloce in red.
I chose it cos I needed an estate and I thought it was the best looking estate around
Sure, it's had its fair share of problems over the years, most of which will be well known to other Alfa owners but the longer I keep it, the longer I want to continue keeping it! Especially when I read that some say the 159 isn't as nice to drive. But that's something I need to investigate, as that was going to be my natural progression!
Not very good, or recent pics, but you get the idea....
I was trying to choose a username that included part of my name and part of the cars model name but there appears to be loads of Roberts that own 156 / SW / Veloce, so I went with something else!
The 'dodge' in my user name is cos of my other car interest. My brother & I have a 1963 Dodge Polara 500 which we got in 2004 and a 1969 Plymouth Sport Satellite, which we bought as 23 year olds in 1985! There, that's given my age away!
I'll post a couple of pics of them if anyone's interested another time.
Anyhoo, that'll do for now.
