Alfa's they have a reputation which is richly deserved!!!! but they don't half look good!!!
Hi Big Stash!!!

So... how is your car doing?

Do you think it was bottom end rattle or the balance belt playing up?

I ask this because i have been getting very very very nervous when i drive my car, i mean reading all the threads on bottom end make me feel i should replace mines as a precaution meassure, what did you do to order the parts?? how did you found the job???

Let me know, thanks!!!
