Hi, thank you guys for the advice.
Well i'm a proud owner of an Alfa Romeo 147 Twin Spark 2.0 litre Lusso, a step up from a mk3 golf!! She feels quite nippy and light.
Gears is a little notchy - i have to consciously shift a little to the left or right with a little force, sometimes gets stuck if i try to change too quick, maybe i'm not used to it yet. But is this common?
There are no lights which remain on once the engine is turned over, which is a relief.
Cambelt was changed at 55k miles. When would the next cambelt be required?
I've read a little about oil in Alfa Romeo's, should a good annual service and change of oil be enough, or do they need periodic checks, making sure they is enough oil in the engine?
I've got two alarm fob keys with the 147, but the boot release button on either key does not work, maybe the boot rather than the keys? I test drove another 147 and the boot release on the fob didnt work either. But if it is the keys, is this easy to fix?
Anyone recommend an independent dealer in the Manchester area?
