Hi All,

Been reading here a while whilst weighing up pros and cons of buying and looking for the right car.
Picked up a black 2013 2.0 170bhp Veloce yesterday and so far very impressed.
No doubt I'll have some questions but, as I do most of my own mechanicing myself I'll hopefully provide some answers too.

No pics just now, needs a damn good clean and machine polish!

Ben

Welcome... I hope you enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed mine. I'm on my 4th. First 3 were 2.0 jtdm, current is 1.4ma. That should show you how pleased I have been with them.

Einstein once said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result!
I bought two Giulietta MAs and the second was the same but better.

Owned a few Fiat cars so have a fair idea of what I could be in for but the Alfa seems so much better put together in every way.

I found the Giulietta to be a couple of generations ahead of its predecessor as it was obviously benchmarked against the Audi A3 in some respects and designed to be a higher grade than the Bravo it related to. The project took 7 years to do but some of the interior was changed quite late on so lacks a bit of finesse.

So picked up the car 21st March and have been unable to drive it since due to lockdown. Only come out of the garage for a wash and polish and to fit new aerial. As I'll have plenty of time for the foreseeable future, I've decided to order bits for engine and gearbox oil change along with new air & fuel filter. Will also take use the opportunity to give the underside a good clean and treat it all with some Bilthamber stuff.

Come up quite nice after a polish, light wasn't great.

Cheers

Thanks. Pleased with the car, I'd been looking for a while. Looking forward to a time when I can get out to drive it.
