My name is Nick & I`m an alcoholic.....whoops, wrong forum!.
Seriously, I was just about to buy an `04+ Alfa 156 20v. Multijet diesel saloon in Veloce trim when the taxman ravaged my funds.
I am now having to consider reverting to a cheaper 2.0 JTS petrol model......not a pain as I only drive around 9K miles per year (mostly alone).....& may even opt for a GTV (although I far prefer the grille on the face-lifted 156!).
I have been a Moderator on the various Hyundai forums for many years & ran a `95 Scoupe Turbo, which I modified & tuned to 180 b.h.p..
I look forward to learning a lot from you guys & (in time) to contributing with my experiences of Alfa Romeo ownership.
