I have my new Alfa

and only after 1 30 min drive i love it tho annoying bleep when the radio goes out of range!! (any ideas) but that can be ignored cus i love it sooooooo much, love the way it looks, love the colour, love the inside and the gadgety things, love the way it bings when you do anything, love the way it bings when you lock it and unlock it *sigh* now I know I will never ever have another make of car again ever!

Re: I have my new Alfa

The little beeps are a nice touch as you walk away aren't they, it's telling you it wants more

Re: I have my new Alfa

Sure you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine.

Got my first Alfa 2 weeks ago and either spend my time driving it, looking at it or cleaning it. The wife's feeling quite neglected!

Congrats
Steve

Re: I have my new Alfa

Congratulations and Happy Motoring!

I haven't lost that fsense of owning something really special, having a silly grin on my face when I drive it and when I get out of it I always look back at it and I think how lucky I am to have a really great car. I hope you always feel this way about your car. Enjoy!

Re: I have my new Alfa

Thanks guys

Yep I have the silly grin, I call my alfa Grin, I showed it to a mate last night then realised I was polishing the badge at the back a bit too lovingly in front of a man lol, I went out for an hour and half drive last night and found that I ran out of twisty country roads (darn) as I was having a whale of a time!

Kinda didnt like filling up from 3/4 down with £40 but enjoy the way you can litrally watch the petrol needle move as you drive lolol

and yes come saturday I will be out polishing it and making sure its all nice and sparkling.

Oh what joy of alfa ownership

Re: I have my new Alfa

It is great flinging the car around the country lane, I live in cornwall now and its full of great little roads like that.

The tank takes about £60 to fill, its a 60 litre, I remember my first time filling up watching the price just going up and up and up and up wondering when it was going to eventually fill up!
