Srut Brace next then - cant hurt thats for sure!
The standard anchor will do thanks Nem - plenty of airbags will ensure a painless experience should I hit any tidal waves.
Let me just tell you all another funny story of my relationship with my dealership. This was last Wednesday....My ship only had 2 bars of oil on the oil check so I decided a top up (never had to top a car up since I can remember)would be in order.
Me - "Please can I have a litre of your best Selina Turbo Diesel Oil?"
Parts - "Sorry we dont have any"
Me (look of disbelief) - "Well ok then, can you just pop to service dept and get me some to top up now with?"
Parts - "They get it from us anyway"
Me "Ok, so what your saying is that you are not currently servicing any diesel Alfas today?"
Parts - "Oh yes, of course sir - but we dont use that oil"
Me - "So you dont use the recommended lubricants as specified by Alfa?"
Parts - .....a strange silence now decended and the odd tumble weed could be seen flying past.....
Me - "Ok, so what do you suggest I do?"
Parts - handing over a dusty old can of Selina performance oil "the specs the same, you will be ok to top up with this!"
...........In my new found Alfa chilled out state took the oil in slight disbelief but not unsuprised by the experience and the lesson learnt from it.
I will save the new gear knob one depending if you would all like to know, or just find these stories boring!
