Collect a G Veloce, Alfa Red Metallic, 11 plate on Friday from Knaresborough :inlove:
Now what to call her?
Need to get to an autoelectricians to see about the 12V in the cubby hole so I don't ruin her looks trailing cables everwhere for the satnav.
Well after much deliberation, cogitation and rumination today I test drove my 3 shortlisted replacements for the Scirocco
Porsche 911 Carrera S PDK 2008 (08 plate)
Stunning stunning car, solid and prestige as you'd expect, handling and performance very good, spec was a little poor and it was...
The paperwork was signed off this morning so from next Wednesday we'll be an all Alfa family as the Bravo is being replaced with a 2.0 JTDm 159 Ti SW in 8C Red :D.
I'll get proper pics up next week but this is the beastie:
I was walking from the car park to the football (Bury FC) and spotted a doppleganger for my car (black with horsehoes), when walking up behind I thought the boot lid was poorly aligned, when I got closer I thought it may be open so I checked, it was!
.....................so I closed it :thumbs:
Said goodbye to my V6 and said hello to RALF (Red Alfa) this weekend. It's a 2007 159 2.4 JTD with 29000km's on the clock. Pastel red with Sunroof, 18inch wheels, electronic heated seats, Auto lights & wipers, electric folding mirrors, Bose sound, Bluetooth with USB socket, Park distance front...
After much deliberation, and being cajoled down a particular path by my new job's 90 mile daily commute, I've finally got myself a new car to replace my lovely (but rather thirsty) Alfa 166 V6.
She's a MkV VW Golf GT TDi 140 DSG. :cool: Not an Alfa, granted, but I needed something that would...
Well after months of deliberation and soul searching i've placed an order for my Brera replacement, its not in the same class but its a great substitute.
VW Scirocco GT 210ps DSG
This was is a demo model I tried yesterday for a couple of hours (with Squadrone Rosso).
Really impressed the...
Well I couldn't resist the temptation any longer, after all it's only money :rolleyes: , so Western in Edinburgh were today permitted to relieve me of the deposit for the replacement for Jennifer's 147.

I posted the link below about 10 days ago.
I am pleased to say the deed is done and the car is now snugly in my garage. It still needs to be transferred into my name though.
Yes, I know I now drive a Vauxhall but I still like to help little old ladies who can't get the fuel filler cap off their MiTo :thumbs:
Yesterday I was filling up the VXR8 (a regular occurance :lol:) and noticed a MiTo driving in as I was going in to pay. Was walking out when I heard a little...
I just flashed my lights furiously at a silver (ish - gabiano blue?) 147GTA going eastbound on the A31 between Winchester and Ropley to warn of an impending scamera van waiting for him at the top of the dual-carriageway hill. He got the message and pulled back in. Anyone here? Nice car anyway :cool:
I know some may think it sacrilege but I've had a towbar fitted to my 2007MY GT. It was fitted by Trident Trailers in Maidstone Towbars r us (who fit towbars for AR dealers Thames and Medway).
It is a GDW bar that, unlike the factory bar made by Brink (Ellerbi), there is no visible bumper...
At long last I have finally ordered my 147. No going back now. The deposit cheque and order form is in the post.
For those who are interested. I ordered the car through Smart Alfa. Zero Seven warned me about not taking their delivery times on trust and I heeded his warning, but as they are...
