<strong>I'll give you another giggle:
This morning was awfully foggy in the Netherest Lands....
When I got into the car, it gave me an ice warning, and indicated 2,5 degrees.
As a consequence, the car disabled the aircon.
When I started driving the outside temp started climbing to 6 degrees, yet still, the aircon was disabled!!
My windows were fogging up like I was having sex in a Beetle while it rained outside, so I really needed aircon by then! Pressing the little snowflake to no avail though!! So then, doing 70 km/h I decided to turn the engine off and back on, got no ice warning, and airco worked again!?!?
Is this what they call Alfa's charachter ??</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I suppose it is, the other day my brand new 147 refused to turn off the rear window wiper. It was going up and down like a maniac and it wasn't until I turned off the engine and locked and unlocked the car that it stopped.
Made me feel part of the club though wink .
Anyway, the car has been an absolute dream apart from this little incident (that engine! that steering! that handling!), so I don't mind.
