So it appears I might have bought a duff one
The clutch has gone from usable to almost useless and now engages at the floor, sometimes finding a gear to engage is almost impossible. looking at alfaworkshop it sounds like the friction plate and springs are having a little party and probably need to bleed the clutch and or replace the master cylinder.
Also found that it might be drinking coolant as i've had to top it up twice from below min to max.
Also found that that drivers door was resprayed at some point and not finished properly.
. only noticed once it was cleaned. T-Cut and Autoglym paint renovator didn't do much, made it slightly better.
The rear suspension is squeaking and knocking on almost every bump hump and speed bump, even when taken at sub 5mph, I never drive quickly over bumps humps and speed bumps usually taking them at a steady 10-20mph and I always do my best to avoid potholes.
I'm a careful driver day to day and take good care of my cars and especially my alfas.
So glad its got warranty, the chap I bought it off appears to be ready to help me out and has said he will look at it all and see what can be done about the door.
Dropping it off tomorrow just hope I get it back in mint condition and it is good. Not sure how I can deal without my car for unknown amount of time.
Updates will follow.
I do not regret buying it just wish it was all working and in good condition.
