Thumbs Up First time Alfa owner- and still happy!


My name is Kenneth, and I just bought my first Alfa Romeo ever 2 weeks ago.
A 2003 156 Sportswagon 1.8 TS.
I bought because I think it is one of the prettiest cars you can get for a very low price. I also own a Corvettes and a Camaro, so quite a strange garage mix some might say:-)
Friends told me, oh my good, don't get a Alfa Romeo, you will regret that, while some of the few that actually owned one, recommended it! So I realized that people (Specially those that have never had one) are afraid of old Alfa Romeos and that is also another reason I got one. What could be so "dangerous" with an old Alfa?
This one has 323 000 km on the meter. It had the Check Engine light on, Leaking oil, Non working rear wiper, jerking hand brake, perfume smell inside and a few other small things. SOo I really took on a challenge:-)
But thanks to this wonderful forum now 2 weeks later, most of I have been able to fix. And the car is a pure joy to drive, almost beats the feeling of my Corvette:-) I'll be happy to share more about the fixes in the Tech forum later.
Thanks to all of you for a great forum to learn more about Alfa Romeos!
