Re: Engine goosed?
I'd be recommending AutoLusso for that job, but your in Edinburgh and they're in Bedfordshire..
I don't really know anywhere in your neck of the woods.. Have a look over in the Scotland regional lounges and see if there are any independent Alfa specialist recommendations.. Dealers are far too expensive though, you'll be looking at £4k or so. A good recon engine, supplied, fitted and warranteed, you should be looking at £1500 or so, from an independent. And get a new clutch in while your at it.
