Hello Everyone.....

Had my Alfa two weeks now and just found this great site.

My new motor is a 2000 X 156 2.5 V6 and i'm totally hooked, i've never had a car i've enjoyed driving so much....i have to keep finding excuses to go out! As far as i'm aware it's pretty stock bar a front splitter and ragazzon back box and the sp3 rear spoiler has been removed and a smaller version fitted which i actually prefer anyway.

Thought i was gonna have to pay to join the AROC site but in all honesty this site seems better, keep up the good work.

Nothing better than AO and welcome. If you need another excuse:
go wash your car and take her out for a spin to dry off the water :D

Welcome aboard Barry :cool: The weather forecast is good so give her a good wash & polish & get busy with the camera asap!

I'm also about 2 weeks into the world of Alfa ownership and it's a FINE experience :)

@ Hugo: I am not, him having had a 147, a spider, a Giulia and now a 156.

Hans, could you tell us about the sheer enjoyment of a V6. Would love to read your opinion on it as you are able to do it in an exciting manner!
(notice the absence of emoticons)...

I have a couple of movies that can testify what Hans think about the v6 (GTA and SZ). ;)

Cheers Mr Orange....

but i think i might have my first problem....just been to Tesco a couple of miles away and i noticed when i pulled up to the car in front i could see moisture in the air in my headlights...nothing wrong there i hear you say but this wasn't coming from his exhaust but from behind my grill!

Pulled over at the first petrol station and sure enough it was coming from my radiator (i think)....checked my water and it was very low so i topped up.

Still the steam in the air...not bad but bad enough.

I also noticed that the fans never came on once either there or back...which seems odd as they usually come on even on short journey's?

Looks like i'm gonna need a new radiator? :(
