After always wanting to own an Alfa I finally went out and bought my 156 JTS 2.0 Veloce 2005 yesterday, and now it makes sense to join the club and find out answers to:
* Why some of my friends now shake their head at me and mutter that this is going to be expensive.
* Why the other friends look at me with respect and declare me a petrol head at last.
* Why, when I turn on the ignition of my new pride an joy, does it make a noise behind the dash for about 30 seconds like it is trying to transform into an Autobot.
* Why it takes 10 times longer than any other car to remove the battery.
These are all minor points however compared to the fact that it is my second day of ownership and this morning it did not turn over - it simply came up with at least three warnings and told me to go straight to a dealer. Have I just bought some scrap metal?
I am calm however. I will read up, invest in a new battery, hold firm to my belief that this is the way forward and the final word in style...
