Welcome to the wonderful world of Alfa ownership. You've come to the right place as an owner, guys on here are great (both on a tech side & just in general). Fantastic forum, worth its weight in gold. Enjoy!

Excellent welcome along. With the increase of Cork members I am thinking a Mini meet is in order.

That would be cool, but and its a big BUT, my alfa is in Luxembourg! i live here and needed a sensible car for work, so i passed on an a3 1.8t Quattro and want an alfa instead! if i ever drive it home ill defo be at the meetings. Will be coming home in september for a huge Coupe meeting (our biggest one ever with cars coming from the UK and France)

Pics of the meets look cool. must say ye have some stunning cars. That yellow 145. would be Cork reg would it? my friend used to have one exactly like that

What do mean with the increase in members? Sometimes it feels like me and Gav are the only bloody members outside of Cork....!!!

I'd say no need to call it a mini-meet, if we even got 1/2 the Cork Alfa Owners to turn up it'd be bigger than the Killarney meet
