As the thread title says, hello!
My name is James Crompton, i live in Maidenhead, U.K. and work as a Hi-Fi service engineer.
At the moment i drive a Peugeot 306, but am picking up my new Alfa tomorrow! Can't wait!
I was at an Alfa dealer with a mate two weeks ago, he was looking at a Fiat they had, and whilst he was on his test drive i fell in love with the 147's! So now, two weeks on i've bought one! It's a 2002, 2.0 TS Lusso in Africa Grey with 17" Super Sports Alloys and full leather interior! As son as i saw it i just had to have it! I went for a test drive last weekend and paid my deposit! What a ride!
I'm going to leave it mostly as standard but would like to change the gear knob. I've read all the posts!!! There doesn't seem to be a definative answer though! I think i may leave it alone if a hacksaw, or worse, an angle grinder is needed!!!!
Well, that's all for now, i look forward to posting some threads and will post some photo's of the car as soon as i can tear myself from the drivers seat!
All the best to you all, James.

Hi Percy. :)

That's a great colour you chose for your 147. It's just a shame you bought the wrong car. ;)
