new owner

hi all

just bought my first alfa.

Always fancied an alfa

found a well cared for x reg 156 1.8 TS on 78000 miles with fsh and every bit of paperwork you can think off .

so far so good - only a few issues - it is an old car after all.

central locking doesnt work. not too bothered at the mo about that.
airbag ecu needs a reset. 25 quid on ebay. sorted.
Needs a new thermostat. doing this weekend.
sticky rear caliper. stripped it down and now working ok.

enjoying it so far - i love tinkering
