I am a engineering trainer from Lincolnshire who considers himself to be quite handy with the spanners. I enjoy working on cars in my spare time much to the annoyance of the Mrs !. I have just joined the ranks of Alfa ownership with a rather down at heel 156 facelift diesel that I am hoping to use as a bit of a fixer upper for work. I love the car and I must say I was extremely surprised by the way it drives and how comfortable it is. I must say that having looked through a few posts tonight you do all seem a knowledgeable lot so I am hoping you may be able to share some of your knowledge with me.
