New Alfa owner

Hi everyone!

I just bought a GT this evening and thoroughly enjoyed my 60 mile drive home. I've just sold a Subaru Impreza WRX and bought this because I need a Diesel - and I generally think they are beautiful cars. My first impressions are that it is very comfortable and a pleasure to drive, though I did get some torque steer when I put my foot down in third gear.

My new car has alfaowner stickers on the windows, which i'm hoping is going to help me find a little bit more out about its history... have the timing belt and water pump been changed etc? It has stamps in the book but the two most recent can't be read and have clearly been added recently.

If I can't find out i'm thinking of getting it done anyway just to be on the safe side. Its a red 2005 JTDM registration SC05 BKV... just incase anyone knows if the previous owner is/was on here.

Thanks everyone. It turns out there is a sticker under the bonnet to say the timing belt was changed at 68000 miles so my main worry is over
I'm really impressed with this car, I should've bought one a long time ago
