I'm Yanis and I'm pleased to say that I just bought my first Alfa!
She's a MiTo 1.4 TB (155)! I've been dreaming about this car since 2009 but I just got the chance to own that specific model.
Located in Edinburgh, so hopefully I'll meet some of you.
After much deliberation, i have decided to put my Spider up for sale.
If anyone is interested, it's advertised on my local Alfa specialist's website:
I have probably made the best or the worst decision of my life! Got me a red Alfa Brera 2.2 JTS SV. It's got surprisingly low mileage for its age and has been looked after by Alfa specialists for most of its life so I'm hoping I don't discover too many surprises. Ever since the Brera was...
Officially a member of the family! - Photo update
I picked my Giulietta up this morning. An 8 hour round trip from Scotland to Knutsford but the excitement both ways made it fly by! I'll post further pics in due course.
2.0 JTDM with a lovely tan leather interior and, importantly, manual...
Ok, after my irritating incidents with the climate control (it decided warm knees were more important than a clear screen in freezing fog) the Alfa's been sitting in the garage for a couple of weeks and I've been using my old Merc whilst I wait for it's potential buyer to return to the UK.
My money is in the bank (for as long as I can stop the other half spending it!) and I am officially shopping.
I found a 56 plate G 3.2 in red in Peterborough, but on closer inspection it raised some concerns and IMO was overpriced. They had a reasonable looking 159 there too, but...
My dad and I had a long chat yesterday, he's as indecisive as I am. But I managed to sway him into agreeing to sell the GTV at TN's shop.
Re-sprayed Alfa red.
Has a 2.0 Nord motor with carbs.
A lot of small stuff in and around the car - a brake caliper, prop shaft balance...
So friday finally collected my new Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde
WOW WOW WOW!! :inlove::inlove::inlove:
The only extra's I put on were the leather seats with memory put on and chose Etna Black which in the sun in gorgeous!
Having been everywhere the weekend my first impressions of the car are...
So there I was, driving my "new" 159 up from Exeter to Aberdeenshire on Saturday evening.
About 10pm, the road between Gretna and Lockerbie somewhere. Three lanes, not another car in sight. About -2 degrees, wide open road. I'm tootling up the inside lane at about 80-85, and go to pass an Audi...
All 4C LE buyers were informed yesterday that the car will be 10% more expensive than initially quoted due to the exchange rate's performance against the Euro.
Further to this it has been confirmed that the car will be delayed (so February delivery is out the window).
And so the long wait...
Okay so today FIAT and Mazda announced that after the initial MOU that they have signed a deal in which Mazda will build the new spider..
It will use the next generation Miata chassis while it will have Alfa designed body and engines!
Well according to Mr Clarkson & co, Im now officially a petrolhead as Ive just bought myself my first Alfa. Does this count if the Alfa in question is a diesel?
My name is Stuart & Im from South Yorkshire. Ive been noseying around this site for a few weeks waiting for the right car to come...

I have been an Audi owner for more years than i can remember and i have decided to listen to my heart and go for an Alfa Brera.
Even though my Audi TTS was a fantastic car, it just didn't have a soul.
I am now car less and am looking to go to the UK to buy a Brera sv 1750 tbi.
I think i might...
