Hiya peeps, just a quicke to say Hi. I'm Ian, a train driver from Essex.
I bought my very first Alfa yesterday (156 2.0 TS Veloce).
I had a Modded Nissan 200SX which I loathe to get rid of, but the missus is expecting our first anyday now, and I've been told firmly that I needed a sensible 'family' car
Now not being a boring so and so, Mondeo's and Vectra's were straight out of the window, and I've always kinda agreed with Clarkson that you're not a real petrolhead until you've owned an Alfa. So I took the plunge. And I'm delighted, I might not even miss the Nissan after all
So you'll be seeing me about a bit as I ask you all lots of advice about living with my new found Silver friend on a day to day basis, especially as I plan of having a few little jobs done to the car as and when I can afford it (apparently these 'baby' thingymajigs can be quite expensive, so the missus tells me)
Although I HAVE just read the thread where you all say the high wing-ed 156 looks naff. Mine has one and I'm rather fond of it
i'm sure we'll get along fine
