Re: what size battery???
Sorry to hijack this thread, but its the most recently updated and I need an answer quite urgently.
My alfa has been sluggish for the last moth or so, so I took it to the main dealer who suggested replacing the cam belt and variator at a cost of £579. The made no difference, but they now say an Alfa expert says the 2 front cats are blocked and need replacing.
I've been quoted £1000 for this work, but looking on the internet, cat (not Alfa branded) seen to cost around £150 each.
My questions are, am I being ripped of at £1000, and are non branded ones OK? I'm not a serious petrol head (as you can probably tell, so as long as it runs properly, I'm happy).
Appologies again for posting on this thread.
