So long, farewell, Auf Weidersehen, goodbye.
Sadly the time has come for me to trade in my 147 (and my first Alfa),the clutch is slipping, the air-con in leaking and the brakes need replacing all round. Over £1k of work on a £650 car and as much as I love her it's time to say goodbye. We went up to the local AR dealer on Saturday to look at a couple of 2nd hand Giuliettas however they are still too expensive so, after test driving a good but uninspiring Focus and a soulless, depressing Qashqai I've ended up with a 2 year old Toyota Auris instead. Not quite what I had planned but it's a nice car that will do me for a few years until a Cloverleaf Giulietta comes up that I can afford!!
I'll get a classified ad up sometime this week as I'd bought some nice upgraded internal parts that I've stripped back off her and I'll be sticking around (if only for the rant room) and it's not the end of my Alfa ownership journey, I'm just taking a break for a few years!!!
