Just bought a 147GTA in gorgeous metallic black last night. Pick it up from dealer on Friday.

In 'typical' cherry poppin first Alfa purchase style I have done none of the usual months of research and investigation I normally do before buying a car.

I simply read an article in AutoCar about used GTA ownership and thought 'I need to own one of those - and Clarkson says every true petrol head needs to have an Alfa once in their life!' and before I knew it I was on my way to Berkhamstead with money burning a whole in my pocket :D

Am now not able to sleep a wink till I collect on Friday. Even better, I am punting my mk2 Octy vRS onto a good friend whose own car has just failed its MOT and we're gonna have a mini 'gumball' roadtrip back from the dealer in a our new (to us) respective cars :mad:

Just hope I make it back home without writing it off!

Thanks for the welcome, like the site already - seems very friendly. Used to have the V6 Mitsubishi FTO and was a regular poster and mini-meet attender. Am looking forward to getting back into a 'scene'.

May try to make it the SWARM one in Warks next Tuesday. . .

Cheers
