No joy from the Alfa agent as regards a manual. All the guy said was it comes on CD and costs over £300 and it is not a standard part or accessory so I probably would not be able to get one off them anyway, GREAT!!!
On a more possitive note, Mercia manuals have come through and can supply the CD-Rom which covers all current variants of the 147. The cost is a bit high at £40 plus P&P but it could be a worthwhile investment.
If there are any other 147 owners out there that would like to share the cost with me, (The more I get the cheaper the cost) I could get backups made and distributed at minimal cost. If you are interested in the CD-ROM manual send me a private message with your e-mail address and we can discuss it further.
