Leaking 147 washer bottle and other gripes

Hi there,

New to these kind of forums, but i am getting incerasingly frustrated with car/dealer.
Owned an 06 147 JTDm16v since dec 06, already coverd 33k.
Had various issues covered under warranty so far, at 1st service had both front discs and pads changed and at 2nd service had both rear shocks and turbo hose replaced. Fair enough, I have covered alot of miles in 1 yer for an alfa, but are these issues the sort you would expect.

More annoying though, is the fact that since day one the washer bottle has leaked and required re filling everyday, some times twice. Each time i take it in they say that they have sorted it but, no, it stil leaks. has any one else had this problem and if so what wasthe cause of the leak as the mechanics seem incapable of solving the issue.
All this was compounded by the fact that the bonnet release lever under the dash snapped off the other day meaining i coulndnt top up!!!! Very dangerous in this weather. So i'm currently back at the dealer getting the lever replaced.

Final moan is the ease with which the front end likes to bottom out on even the smallest compresion. Its so bad that I have managed to flat spot one of the front alloys (17" Supersports) on the motorway!! Anyone got a fix for this?

Thats everything of my chest. If any one has sufferd similar issues I would be interested in you sollutions.
