Should/can I sell?

Hi guys,

Have an 02 147 Selespeed. Has always been pricey on service costs (3 timing belts, 2 suspension bushes etc so far) but now I am paying almost 1000 per 12k/year. Even after 900 I still have both an engine oil leak and a gearbox oil leak. Have also had the ABS/VDC warning light on and off for about 2 years now despite taking it to the garage on several occasions (admittedly not an Alfa garage - scared what they might charge me). Re ABS/VDC - have changed brake pedal switch and had ABS sensors cleaned but that still hasn't helped.

Should I just get rid of it or does anyone know where I could get these problems fixed properly at a reasonable price? Does anyone want to buy it - nicest interior I've ever seen with sports leather etc. Alternatively does anyone know a good garage in south manchester where they are good with 147s?

Re: Should/can I sell?

Do you have any pictures of where the leaks are? You probably have a dead sensor on the front (quite common), just cleaning them wont do, thay have to be replaced.
