Hello I have benn an Alfa owner on and off for some yeas now. The first Alfa was a GT Junior 1300, that was followed by an Alfasud. The mechanics were good, but by the time I reached 100,000 miles the bodywork had mostly returned to mother nature. Some years later whilst working in Rome I bought a RHD 75 from a colleage which I returned to the Uk with. That had a numbers plate A3LFA which I retained and is now on our 02 registered 147 Selespeed. Hvaing got used to the paddle gear changing I love driving it.This only has some 15,000 miles on the clock, as most of our donkey is done in our older SAAB automatic. The only complaint I have of the 147 is the instrumentation cluster. I often have great difficulty reading the red needle on the black backgroundAny ideas anyone has to imporve this would be greatly appreciated.
