156 Sportwagon JTD Owner from Surrey

Hello all,

Recently bought a 156 2.4 JTD Sportwagon as my current small fleet of toys barely ventures past 22mpg and 60 miles a day commute was starting to take it's toll on both my wallet and sanity.

As Clarkson once said you can't be a true petrolhead until you've owned an Alfa Romeo and he's right. There are many, many frustrating moments (mostly electrical) but every now and then the car just totally makes up for it. I even had the opportunity to do a few laps of Lydden Hill in it the other week and I have to say I'm mightily impressed for what is basically a diesel family car. It massively surprised me with it's capabilities, and was out pacing some 'proper' track cars.

I've got a few things I want to do to the car such as remap, EGR delete etc so thought I'd join up here and say hello!
