Name: Amy B
Forum nick: alfachick
Age: 23
Gender: Female
Location: York, UK
Occupation: : Organising.
Interests other than cars:
Music, I seem to have hundreds of CD's now and make sure I have a different
one in the car everyday! I have a Cannondale mountain bike which I try to get
out on as much as I can (occasionally at the moment). Going out with my friends
as much as I can and sampling the York nightlife (well it dies boast over 250
pubs and bars). Also I enjoy watching touring cars and rallying as much as I can
and I'm looking at becoming a marshal for local rallies.

Previous car:
Seat Ibiza Cupra Turbo.

Dream car:
Hmmm there are too many to mention really but a quick list of future possibilities
are; Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6 GSR, Lancia Delta Integrale, Alfa Romeo 156 GTA and
Alfa Romeo GT. As for one that I could never afford unless I win the Lottery that
would be a Aston Martin AMV8 Vantage.

Why did you buy an Alfa 156:
At the time I needed a bigger car and now I couldn't imagine not owning my Alfa because
it's gorgeous!

If you had to change your car today, what would you buy:
If I had the money I would definitely go for the 156 GTA or the new GT…… watch this space!!

Info about your 156:
Abused 1.8 16v Twin Spark heavily modified

What modifications have you done to it:
Far too many...
- Full Carcept Bodykit incl. Sideskirts, front spoiler, rear bumper extensions
- Alfa high wing boot spoiler
- Colour coded bumpers and wing mirrors
- Autodelta sports suspension lowered 30mm
- 18" Mak Spirit wheels
- Red Dots Brembo conversion including custom front and rear discs and pads
- Full Supersprint exhaust system
- Tinted windows
- BMC F1 air filter
- Clear side repeaters
- MHW rear lights smoked
- Carbon look dash insert
- Alfa Romeo chrome gear knob
- 12" sub and amp and up-rated front speakers so the tunes sound good!

What are your future plans for your 156:
Well I love my Alfa and I have got it looking just about how I want apart from...
- GTA headlights
- 2L Twin Spark engine

Do you have any good storys from your Alfa Romeo driving:
Well apart from the fact that my car stands out a bit from the norm one time
stands out when I went to Trax Show at Silverstone; after queuing to get into
Silverstone for about an hour I eventually got through the gates and was shown by
the marshals where to go to show my car. I was just following the cars through
when I was flagged down by one of the marshals and asked to wind the window down...
When I wound the window down the marshal's face just dropped and he managed to say
"Wow! That's a really nice car luv; and a bird driving too!! Wow!" I thanked
him and drove off and yes I did have the biggest grin on my face for the rest of the day!
