Hi, Just bought my first Alfa. It's a black, 156 JTD 150bhp Veloce, facelift interior model. It has tan leather interior and a great sounding Bose stereo system. Minor quibbles so far (and by reading the forum I know I'm not alone!!) are : I get Master Control Failure if I take it past 3,000 RPM although this seems to reset itself after I turn the engine off. I also only have one key and it doesn't operate the central locking or boot, the battery is fine and the car istelf had a new battery installed the week before I picked it up. I will try the "disconnect the battery" theory to see if my key will work and the Master Control failure will disappear. If not I'll see how horrendously overpriced my local dealer is (Fish Brothers in Swindon if anyone has any experience?).

I previously owned a Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo in black with tan leather and I feel the same about that as I do about my Alfa.

Thanks for listening!!
