My wife and I purchased our first alfa a few days ago, a 52 reg 156 2.0 JTS Turismo.
It's subsequently been in for a full service and a cam belt change, and I now have a list of faults which I'm looking to rectify in the near future.
Top of my priority list is the brakes, as all 4 discs and pads are due for replacement, and the braking experience is currently a little shoddy, to say the least.
Being moderately handy, I'm willing to have a go at this myself having downloaded a service manual and perused the job.
My wife, however, has little confidence in my DIY capabilities, and fears that I will kill her through my 'tampering with the brakes'.
The potential compromise we have reached is that I can do the work, if supervised/assisted by someone who knows what they are doing, and has done the job before.
Is anyone out there in the Bristol area, who fits the bill, who is prepared to give me a hand sometime soon, on a saturday afternoon?
Obviously, it's unreasonable of me to expect this for free, so I'm willing to cough up a few quid in cash for the privilege of your company...
