Thought about scrapping but hard to stay mad at Alfa's so eventually forked out for 2nd hand 'box and new clutch.

Sounds like a rare failure as manuals normally failry strong but be intresting if happend to anyone else...
Sounds about the same, glad you got it sorted. How much did it set you back?

Alfa gtv 3L

Over 3.5K in NZ$ so about 1.8K pounds. Alfa parts in NZ mucho expensive
Looking on ebay.uk thats more than the 156s cost but they go for at least NZ$5K here. GTAs more like NZ$18K+
Price we pay for living in paradise
