Portishead Alfa owners?

Any Alfa owners from Portishead/Clevedon interested in a bit of networking etc in the Portishead/Clevedon area, great Breakfast at Hall & Woodhouse at Portishead Marina, and the Alfa's always look great with the Marina as a backdrop.

Hi lisknik,

Sounds good, do an official thread if you like :-). I was putting the idea out there to see who was about.

I have owned several Alfa's in the past, GTV and a 147 and now currently own a Mito 170 QV with Sabelt seats. I love Alfa's but is always good to chat to others, share ideas etc.

No probs, just PM me the details and date you want

If you fancy a trip up to Bristol, brekkie meet is regularly on now, BIAMF is on in a couple of months, and Alfaholics at combe, and a few things in South Wales as well

Nice one,
I'll get a date sorted and let you know.

I have BIAMF already booked in diary as it's great. do you run a Facebook group or anything similar with all the South West events, or is it a matter of looking on here?

Hey tess, love the white Mito's, which wheels did you go for? I love the seats, I quite often drive different hire cars for work to go to Bournemouth and nothing compares now!!!

Nothing wrong with leather ;-)

I was worried about the seats when I ordered the car, but so glad I went for them as I really love driving in them now, always get comments from passengers also.

I didn't go for Bose, but wish I did now as have had trouble with the rear left speaker, have had it changed by Wessex twice now, think I might put pressure on them for an upgrade if they can't stop the awful buzzing noise.

mito speakers are crap, i am on my third mito, one 95bhp and 2 qv's.......had speakers changed in both of the others, bose is awesome, no distortion, i like a lot of bass and heavy metal, no vibration...amazing, well worth the dosh
