Found the site by accident, looks great!
Owned a 147 1.6TS lusso for 2 weeks, so far so good (apart from the Headlights packing in - trying to trace fault). In my 30 years of owning vehicles never had an Alfa before now, always avoided due to horror stories. But, I've bitten to bullet and taken the plunge ( traded in a Land Rover for it, so used to little niggles), I also ride an Italian Motorcycle - again cracking design, but prone to electrical problems, still that's another story.
I look forward to contributing to forums, and many years of happy motoring to come.
