Hello there everyone.

I've been an Alfa owner since 2000. I started out with a 2000 model GTV v6, which I had for just over two years and it was pretty much trouble free (niggly wind noise due to rubbish door seals).

I flogged that for something even faster, then a year later (in the autumn of 2003) took ownership of a flat and flogged the other motor for a 2000 model 156 Selespeed that was clinging to the inside of its 3 year warranty by its fingernails.

Let's just say that it has not been a trouble free experience! The actuator went on the last day of the warranty - lucky man! The airbag computer packed in last year, and I've had various niggly issues with electrics (battery problems and lamp bulbs blowing on a every couple of months basis).

Currently the car has 92,000 miles on the clock and I'm trying to get the bottom of a the dreaded 'car randomly selects neutral' disease, which I'll post the details about elsewhere...

For the moment, I'm glad I didn't buy a Mundano...
