Sorry to hear that mate...
I know you may be disheartened at the moment but believe me, All multi Alfaholics have all been there, regretting the day we bought the damn things.... But one thing always becomes apparent, you learn by previous foibles and mistakes then apply what you have learned into getting a better version or model. You now know what to expect and what to look for now... I have gone to other Marques after Alfa's and always, regretted it even further!
It's never ever the same!
Good luck in your future descision mate.
