Can my 147 be made to feel a bit more urgent???
My 03 147 1.6 petrol is ok - but lacks any sense of urgency & sharpness. Is this normal, or should I expect more fun from my Alfa?
When my ancient old Focus got a bit lagardly, a sparkplug gap reset made it really fly and gave it a huge eagerness to please. I wish my 147 felt the same!
No matter what I do - 4 new 'big' spark plugs & the smaller ones set to 7mm + a new air filter too. But the car seems utterly 'relaxed', and without any urgency at all.
It's engine is lovely & smooth with (an ok) 34mpg - but driving it makes you feel like it can't be bothered with any sharp accelerating stuff, and can't we just potter-along?
Is this normal with a 1.6TS, or is there something I can do to shake it's lethergy out? Any tips would be very much appreciated!!!
