Donegal ALFA owner here.

How ya folks I'm up in Donegal here don't see anybody from up this neck of the woods on here. I drive a wee 147 1.6 TS in black a lovely wee car but ideally would like a GTA but the blooming road tax would be crippling. So will have to make do with this though. I would'nt mind a nice black GTV though but need to sell a few cars I have lying around at the moment otherwise the wife will kill me. I must take some photo's when the weather clears up a little.

I have the car for 2years now put koni suspension side skirts rear spoiler and a genuine GTA rear bumper I also bought a set of multispoke alloys (not genuine AR) from ebay in Italy got them for €100 cheaper than would be fit to get them from uk also got a Raggazon cat back ss exhaust and leather from a GT (really class seats) Only thing I dont like is the lack of power alright around town but overtaking can be tricky.

Glenties is a lovely place. I used to know a lot a folk from around there when I was younger (some drunken nights) way younger. Does it not annoy you paying that amount of reddies on road tax I really would begrudge it. The fuel would not bother me as listening to that engine scream would be worth putting the foot down for

will keep an eye out for it. I know a few about Ardara aswell alot of time spent over in that area when I was young. A guy from there races a push bike with me (now living in Ramelton) John Curran is his name.

2L TS that'll be €614 please to drive on these ****ty roads.
Motor Tax Rates Based on Engine Size - Department of the Environment, Heritage & Local Government
3.2L GTA that'll be €1566
Tis different for cars registered after 1st July 2008 as its based on CO2 emissions
2.0 JTS will be €1050 thats why I was really suprised when I saw a 2010 2L JTS 147!!!
Motor Tax Rates based on CO2 Emissions Effective from the 1 jan 2009 - Department of the Environment, Heritage & Local Government
