Back in Melbourne, and Alfa-ed Up
« on: October 01, 2019, 11:18:00 AM »
Hello forum

I recently returned to Melbourne from a 10 year stint in Auckland, and have just bought a very tidy 2007 159 JTS Q4 with 107,000 km on the clock. It's the third Alfa for me, I had a 1998 156 Twin-Spark for a few years, and unfortunately had to leave my 2003 156 GTA in Auckland with a friend  :'(.

So far I'm really happy with the 159, just a few minor tidying up things to be done (telephone dial rims don't like kerbs)...Looking forward to getting to know the 159 and interacting with the forum!

Looks good, they are still a handsome car. And do I spy a Ducati?

Close - Tamburini designed, but it's actually an MV Agusta 312RR track bike. The Ducati 996S is still back in NZ (a sad state of affairs currently being rectified  :)
