Hello everyone......I'm new to this site..but have enjoyed the 156.net forums. Hopefully this will prove to be just as entertaining and helpful.
I have a 2001, 1.6TS, Velocce 156. In Rosso Red, with a sports package, carbon fibre dash, Barits seats etc...and we're very much in love thank you.
I chose an Alfa after years of MGB's, Spitfire's, Rover's and assorted French cars. I say 'chose', but I belive that these wonderful cars choose their owners, not the other way around!!! Put simply, you don't just end up with an Alfa, like others do with their Ford Mundanes...etc..... There's a chemistry, an interaction, and a real relationship.
When I'd paid the deposit on my Alfa, I hardly slept for the five days in between payment and collection, I was that excited....and today, four years down the line...when i get behind the wheel and hear that engine, I still am.
