Hi All,

Great forum, really refreshing to see so many helpful, friendly enthusiasts under one 'roof'. Like so many others, I found you when trying to troubleshoot a problem - crankshaft position sensor error on my wife’s Capri Blue (nearly black) 156 SW 1.8TS, now replaced, fingers crossed... I bought the car for SWMBO a few years ago, but always preferred my Puma on the narrow, bumpy, twisty (but entertaining) third world ruts that pass for roads these days. I've since become a bit of a West Country commuter, driving longer distances on smoother roads & using the Alfa (cruises better, carries more). I found myself on a bright morning (shades on - naturally) barrelling through a tight downhill corner towards Tavistock with all tyres singing exuberantly - and realised I'm hooked. For all their many faults, nothing else on the road (that I can afford) gives you quite the feeling of wellbeing that an Alfa does. God help me...
