LOL. From Burntwood eh? That will explain why you also posted about the speaker not being good enough.
Seriously though, you'd be surprised how many locals must have joined this forum now, but I have yet to see one so close. I used to go to 7's nightclub in my youth when they had this little Indie room upstairs.
I'm never sure about kwik-fit for something like tracking/alignment. But as I don't know of any local specialists I'm not sure where to go.
As for the tyre pressure. For the front the manual states 2.4 (unladen) to 2.7 bar (fully loaded). when I and my golf clubs are the only thing in the car I can only assume I am slightly above unladen. So 2.7 to me seems a lot of extra pressure. I can only imagine adding more pressure would add to any oversteer which already exists. But not having anough pressure might start to explain why my first set of fronts went in 8000 miles???
Without looking I can say yes, there is a slight toe in of the wheels. Not sure I would want to change it from factory setting though. I'm sure Alfa did this for a reason. Any suggestions guys?
In terms of Alfa dealers in our Area, Central in Dudley have been great with me. Air con and Selespeed problems sorted under warranty along with a few other glitches. Even though I didn't buy her through an Alfa dealer, they still sorted her out. Which was my big concern by taking an unoffical route to ownsership.
One of the guys at work told me that they thought they had seen an advert for an Alfa dealer opening in a more central Birmingham location. Which would be great for me. He has yet to show me the proof though.
