Evening All

Hi folks,

Having just got our first alfa, an X plate 156 1.6 t-spark, i thought i'd best join up and no doubt end up picking your collective brains!

The alfa is actually my wifes car, unfortunately we have 6 stone of recalcitrant basset hound to transport around too, so my battle cruiser is the total antithesis- a volvo 940 turbo... (Go easy on me please!)

Ive had quite a few cars over the years, this being the first alfa, but definatley not the last. Other highlights are various Saabs, a Fiat Panda and an Uno, couple of volvos, a Toyota Surf (was very drunk at the time) and a couple of Fords.

Strangely enough, the Italian metal is proving to be almost as reliable as the Swedish... So far( crossing fingers, toes and any other organs that will cross!!)

Anyway, it's a pleasure to meet you all.

Thankyou all for the warm welcome!

Finally got around to doing the thermostat yesterday- took less than an hour and we have working heating again and more power!!

On the downside, my volvo got jealous of all the attention being lavished on the bella and snapped its handbrake cable! Not a cheap or easy job and one im not looking forwards too either
