So what are you driving now then? What kind of 147?
Good choice on the E.L. I heard of it too late. So I already ordered the 1.9 jtd 16V.
But no regrets. Got to pick her up tomorrow!

Right now I am driving a 147 1.6 distinctive with 17" inch selespeed alloys.

Wow the JTD is also great. I drove it a couple of times, because a friend of mine drives one. I really like the acceleration of the car it's awesome! Doesn't feel like a diesel to me !

<strong>Hi Jerry!!
Good wheels - my favourites!!
What colour is Pelle Cuoio ??

BTW - isn't the 1.6 120bhp??
Cheers

No I drive the 105 bhp right now and I like it so i decided that 105 bhp is enough for me. Cause i mainly use the car in the city and here in Holland we got speed bumps, so the acceleration from bump till bump is fine with the 105 bhp. And ofcourse fuel consumption is somewhat beter with the 105 bhp. At least I keep telling myself that!

@Jerry, congrats man! Those alloys are AWESOME (I have standard 15 inch Elegant alloys :( ).

@Ricks: the 1.6 is in two versions: 1.6 has 105 BHP and the 1.6 Veloce has 120 BHP wink

And yes, don't we all have that red-leather-fetish? But one day....I promise you I'll get my red-leather baby too :) !

<strong>Congratulations with you new bella! Great you could still order a Edizione Limitata.

Any chance we can meet her (and you) on April 26 during the international 147 meeting?</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Yeah I was already thinking about that, but it's my fathers birthday. So I am not sure. I already checked out your site. Great site BTW. But for the next meeting I will be there for sure. Great innitiative! O and I will sent you pictures of my new Bella(just learned that here) to put on your site. That is ofcourse if there's any place left on your great site. There were also some pictures of the colour I selected so I checked them out to see if i made the right decession.

Welcome! Please tell me you ordered the red leather! :D :D :D

Ik rij slechts 6 tot 7000 km per jaar. dus tja

The combination of Blu Casual and Tan Leather is great and so are the other specs. The down side of the color is that you have to wash your bella very often (the dirt shows very quickly)

But too bad I don't have a De Best registered for the meeting yet wink

Yeah I think that is the same colour. The only thing that scares me is that I ordered the colour of the interior and the outside colour from a coloured picture. So I hope i did the right thing. It is kind of exciting! But your picture has eased my mind a little

Well I drive a lease car, so I think I'm lucky! If it wasn't for the lease car, I'm affraid I couldn't afford an Alfa 147, since I just bought a house and that wasn't cheap either wink

Nice specs you have here (even if I would, as I did, wink go for the 120bhp).

I think the color combination you got is quit nice. I like a bit of contrast between the interior and exterior... fire black and beige velvet :D :D wink So I think you got here a good combination.
Anyway, it's an Alfa, so any combination is good wink
