New door check strap fitted
Had the car for 10 weeks now and the first issue. Akthough bearing in mind my previous 2004 BMW 530d let my wife down with an electrical failure the day after I picked it up I am delighting in telling all my mates my Alfa is more reliable than that piece of ... anyway back to the thread. The door sounded terible with the normal ker klunk on opening and closure, I knew I had to get the spanners out. Turns out the failure was due to the metal on the strap near to the lower mounting thread snapping clean off. So £26 at the dealer later and 30 mins of my time and I now have a silent door once again.
In every other way it keeps purring away, making me smile every time I start it and I can't resist a little throttle blip on start up to turn a few heads. It's even done 350 miles on this tank full. I love this car!!!
