Hi People inside my computer ;)

My name is Andy and I am from the grimm North East (Yes I bought the car. No I didn't steal it and bring it up here :D ).
I have got (recently) an Alfa 156 2.4 JTD Sportwagon Veloce and oh do I LOVE this car!!
Never had an Alfa before so when a friend offered me the 2 1/2 year old car for a bargain price as he was leaving the country I jumped at the chance. Only had it 3 weeks but I will NEVER look back! I have never had a diesel like this before, sounds amazing with the turbo whirring but as the revs get higher you get to hear the V5. :D :D
The interior is amazing - full leather, Bose stereo with fitted sub, a well thought out dash and performance and handling that puts a lot of petrol cars to shame AND IT'S A DIESEL ESTATE!! Never thought I would see the day I bought one!
All of this in metallic black, oh and now a lovely crease in the bonnet where some youth must have mistaken my car for a step :mad:
Anyway I have waffled enough for today . . . anyone got any handy hints on warranties and if I have to pay £40 so they can tell me that the airbag has a fault (isn't that the purpose of the warning lamp I have illuminated?) . . :mad:
Cheers,
Andy.

Hi Andy, welcoem on board. :) It's great to hear you'«re having such a great time with your "new" Alfa! :)

I bet you're going to take some piccies, sooner or later. If you care to share them with us you'll be waiting... :D

Btw... it's a 5 in line, not a V5. ;)

Thanks for the welcome and yes of course I can share some pics - thats if you don't mind looking at an estate :D (even if it is the sexiest estate I have ever seen - yes I am biased!)

Ok I have some webspace I can use for pics, I have the pics BUT when I upload them and then make them viewable they are HUGE!!

I have a 5.2 megapixel Fugi something-or-other (the wifes) and although the pics are quality they are massive. Is there a way I can make a small thumbnail that is a clickable link to the bigger picture?
I have Adobe Photoshop CS but I am a complete novice with it :(
My brother is the genius but he is away in the States.

And I am sorry if I have posted this in the wrong area but at the moment I am still getting used to the forum.

Cheers,
Andy.
