147 1.9JTD Lusso

Hey all!

Thought I'd say hi!

I'm Lee from Cornwall where it's wet, windy, cold and grey! The brochures are all over-glamourised lies!

I've finally got a 147! It's a JTD Lusso. I wanted the Multijet but the only nice one I found in the whole country was a Turismo and I like the toys in the Lusso! Been looking for ages for the right one to come along so I can now rid of the 'bridging car'.

Was it just [I]my[I] friends or has everyone else had a fair amount of teasing about buying an Alfa. I'm going to prove them all wrong... but my so called friends did lead to some paranoia so have taken out breakdown cover just in case!

If there's anyone else in Cornwall then drop me a message.

Looking forward to lifetime Alfa ownership now...

Re: Hey all!

Hi Lee and welcome to AO

You will get the odd sigh, rolled eyes etc, but you drive a real car and when it comes down to it get them in the passenger seat and get round a few twisty bends with the foot down, they will change their minds.

I took mine on a track day and was one of the best through the corners only overtaken my M3s and the like...
