May I just say this thread makes me feel marginally better about things, in some ways it's like a self help group only better
Currently my 147 Ti is adding the following (in no particular order of merit) character building elements to my ownership:
Occasional rough running/smoke/hesitancy etc. Probably the inlet manifold.
Rusting rear exhaust box (do have nice replacement waiting to be fitted).
Gear linkage cables seen better days - need replaced.
Top hat bushes on gear selector seem goosed - need replaced.
Aircon is definitely not running cool - needs recharged (at the very least).
One of the oil pipes to oil cooler is now leaking - both will probably need replacing.
Dirty great crack in the windscreen - needs replaced.
Reverse parking sensors not activating every time I go into reverse - I give up.
Front and rear struts are starting to go - need replaced.
Nearside front wheelarch liner missing - needs replaced
Well, now I see it written down, that's a list to keep me busy looking at the classifieds.....
