    Best way I've seen to spend a student loan. Saves ******* it all against the wall.

    Sorry is I'm p!ss!ng on anyone's chips here, but I can't help but notice something.

    I regularly see Home Cinema's in houses - sometimes in magazines - sometimes here on t'internet. And I can't help but notice that a massive proportion of them, way over 50% I think, have huge floor-standing front speakers in small rooms, pretty close up to the wall.

    This is an acoustic disaster!

    I even saw a former Premiership footballist smiling away in pics of his (garage conversion?) home cinema, with a pair of huge (and hugely expensive!) B&Ws placed less than six inches from the wall. His kit was installed professionally.

    What the hell were they thinking of? Didn't they give him any advice?

    It's the acoustic equivalent of sticking a couple of high wattaged lights a few inches either side of the screen.

    Yeah I spent mine on running an Alfa 145, then when I graduated the bank gave me a no-questions graduate loan that went straight onto an Alfa 156 (with Zender styling, 18" split-rims and what I think it still affectionately referred to as "Serious ICE")!!

    Mind you I'll be paying both off for the rest of my life :(

    I've just bought an Alfa 156. Contrary to popular belief, it didn't turn to rust after the first heavy downpour :D

    Hey they worked out how to galvanise the bodywork back with the 155 (which wasn't *that* long ago in the grand scheme of things lol!).

    As hardened Alfisti I must congratulate you on your purchase, but warn you to check oil and water weekly at least. They drink the stuff but have no sensors warning when you are low. (I've just spend near £3k on a new engine....)

    I also highly recommend putting large wheels and a tea-tray style spoiler on as per below ;)

    Thanks for the tip, duly noted. Nice looking car.

    I think if I spend another penny on wheels etc, the wife would kill me! The car is a year old, face lifted model and so far has been great. Here's the pic from the dealers website:

    That is a lovely colour and definitely the right wheels for that facelift. My neighbour just got one in the lighter blue (not the really light one, the quite "primary" blue for sake of a better word). Looks brilliant with those wheels, and I'm proper jealous cos only when his was outside did I see the subtle differences the face lift has: different rear bumper, different detailing around the rear number plate, different side skirt detailing and different front bumper options! All for the better. And the JTS engine (mine is pre-JTS too, but I still love it!). Welcome to club Alfa!!!!

    I think with most rooms it is a case of aesthetics as well as acoustics. If it is a joint space that has to double up as a living room or bedroom you can hardly have tall floorstanders stuck miles away from the walls and corners and not be able to get around the room because of them. It may sound better but it would hardly be practical.

    P.S. Sean, the bedroom looks damn nice to me :thumbsup:
