About to be Alfa Owner

Hi All.
I hope that I soon will be the owner of a Giulietta diesel 170bhp. My current car is a Subaru Impreza (non-turbo). Very happy with it but I have decided to go Italian! I service my own vehicles, so am looking forward to learning about Alfa Romeo's.

Hi All.
Thank you for your responces. I went to a local dealer, or two, and discovered that the 15 plate does not come out for a while. Also that companies tend to change their motors after April first. So currently there is not too much choice. I should have said that I tend to buy "nearly new" to avoid the early drop in price! So I am going to have to be patient.

Have now bought Giulietta LT13DDV, registered 02/03/2013. It is a Sportiva MA, petrol and manual. Etna black with red upholstery. Spent some of this morning in the boot with a torch! Wife outside with a hose, while I tried to spot the leak. It is probable that the garage left the boot open in the rain as I could not find a leak. Pheww! Went to Costco to look at oil and found Castrol Edge 5w-40 with Fiat spec 9.55535-s2. 4L for 32.38. But the Castrol website refers me to two types of Giulietta for my reg (up to 13 and 13 to later) and one is refer to dealer. So now at a loss as to what to do.

I notice that Mobil1 0W-40 meets similar spec except -Z2 -N2 and -M2 at 29.98 for 5L.
