Faded plastic bumper trim and plastic at the top of the bonnet
Faded Alfa badges front and back
Stock back box rusts like a good-un
New badges on order and a new exhaust going in today. As for the plastic trim, I guess I can only keep them topped up with bumpercare. Wish the previous owner had taken a little more care in that department.
My bumper trim is OK, probably because I've no doubt used back to black on them sometime in the past. I changed the leaf scuttle panels last year after replacing the broken windscreen wiper unit. Not cheap for what they are. My conservative estimate is that Alfa are putting at least 1000% mark up on the manufacturing cost for the pair!
Changed my front badge last year - what a pain in the neck. A word of warning, the badge is mounted on a bracket that is screwed into the underside of the bonnet. Check that the screws are in good condition because the heads stripped on mine as they were so rusty and I had a mare getting the thing off! I seem to remember having to cut the badge off!
Bit of a bodge job really.
Re-painted my back box last night. Will look OK for another month or two. It was the outer skin that was in the worst condition and my Indie suggested removing that first before replacing the whole thing. Plenty of other costs needed prioritising at the time (Replacement 2nd CAT, drop links, door handle, wiper mechanism, under carpet insulation........).
I passed 100,000 miles last week and am trying to get round to doing a bit of a 'long term test' report showing all the bits and bobs I've had fail in the 50,000 miles I've done during the two years I've owned her. Might get a mo to do this towards the end of the week.
