Wave Southerners... Chat away!

One thing we are missing in our area is a chat thread...

so here it is

I see alot of you guys on here but you dont tend to venture much outside of the tech areas, so here is the place to chat with other Southerners.

It is either South Midland - which doesnt exist or its east midlands which is a very big area, or you dont get an area :EVIL:

I saw that - good to have the rep (although I've never had an experience of any gatherings). I will definitely try to join some of the meetings, it's interesting to try something new

147 GTA, C-Max

Hi all, guess I'd better introduce myself as I'm hoping to attend a few meets. I live in Gosport and work in Port Solent; originally Welsh but moved here for work some 13 years ago now. I arrived at Alfa ownership through a series of hot hatchbacks, an MX5 and a VX220 Turbo - then the wife fell pregnant and I really had to get "something sensible with four seats"...which is why I ended up coming home with a 147 GTA a couple of years ago..

My 147 is an '04 plate, Rosso with black interior. It differs from standard 147 GTAs by having black 19" wheels, quad-exit Raggazzon exhaust and an Autodelta GTAM front bumper (looks a bit like the Alfa GT's front end) amongst various other bits and bobs. It was originally supercharged by Autodelta until a previous owner reversed the conversion for being "a little hairy".

Maintenance wise things haven't been too bad - water pump and cambelt at about 700 quid was the biggest expense. Mike at A&M Alfa in Wickham looks after it for me.

Looking forward to getting out with you guys!

'04 Rosso 147GTA
Autodelta quad exhaust | KW V1 coilovers & fully Powerflexed suspension| Autodelta c/f inlet + K&N drop-in filter | Autodelta LSD | 330s & braided hoses | 19" matte black BBS CH-alikes | Autodelta GTA AM front bumper | Black rear spoiler & front grille | PF Pads
