Hello world!

So when some web software tells me to introduce myself to the forum, I duly follow suit. That must make me a sheep and a follower, right?

Except that I am soon to be an Alfa owner for the first time, so I'm hoping there is still a small piece of individualism and passion beating away somewhere inside this corporate body.


I will be collecting a new GT (2.0 JTS Lusso) from the one and only Tork Butt at Bishops, Guildford in September, i.e. on a 57 plate.

Am I excited at the thought of owning an Alfa? Definitely, it will be only the second car that I bought with my heart rather than my head (the first was an MX-5).

Am I worried about Alfa's history of reliability and build quality issues? Yes, a bit, which is why I'm here. I'm hoping I can get some feedback on what works and what doesn't, what I should do before and after I collect the car, maintenance hints and tips... generally good advice on how to be a happy Alfa owner.

I look forward to talking to you soon!

Re: Hello world!

Hi David,

Welcome. I'm a newcomer to the forum too despite owning an Alfa for the last 4 years. I've had more than my fair share of Alfa gremlins over the course but I'm on the verge of buying another. For me nothing else quite hits the mark. How my friends have mocked each time it's been into the garage... they all agree it's a great motor when it's behaving though! Good luck with it.
