Hi Everyone - New Member First Time Alfa Owner
« on: November 14, 2006, 11:48:59 AM »
Hi All,

Just purchased my first Alfa Romeo on the weekend, an 03 156 JTS Selespeed with Sunroof and leather in Proteo Red.

This is the first time I have owned an Alfa but have always been a fan of them.

Previously owned Peugeots in the family and still do. My previous car was an 04 206 GTi180, loved the car but needed something bigger and the 156 suits my needs perfectly. Just trying to come to terms with how all the switches work.

Just thought Id drop a line and say Hi and hope my Alfa experience is as good as my Peugeot one.

Cheers,

Simon

Do come, it's a great way to get a feel and understanding for the history and passion of AR. Plus, you can check out the 156's grandpa, the 1750 Berlina :D

Hi Evan,

No I did not, I had other plans on the day, but I would have preferred being there.

I am actually considering becoming a member of the club. I have been a member of the PCCV with a few years now, and my mechanic Sam from Spencer Street Automobiles told me to join up with the Alfa Club cause they have some good event days.

So will fill out the forms and send away soon.

Hope to attend the next club event.

Cheers,

Simon

Welcome Simon,

Hope you do join the club.  There's nothing like sharing your experiences regarding your car with like minded people.  The Victorian Alfa club are a great group of people!

Congratulations on your purchase.  I hope you are really happy with it.

Cheers  ;D

Hi Simon,

I'm also considering a JTS spec 156, not sure about the Selespeed though. How are you finding it?  I'd also be interested in knowing a little more about your particular car like how many km's it had done and roughly what you paid for it.

Send me a message on this forum if you don't want to post details back in this thread.

Cheers,
Anth
