Thanks guys! Day two has been brilliant;
I'm still missing 3rd gear (I'm not even sure it has one any more) and now selecting 6th instead or reverse, some lights have gone away, there's now a new light with a flashing headrest sign? Let the old man drive it.. Let the old dear sit it in... I then Had to pull her put of what she called "death grips". After hours of browsing AO I think I have a gacky EGR valve; spent 30 mins in shop buying de-greaser and a bucket.... Autoglim leather cleaner, interior cleaner, car shampoo, high gloss wax, resin wax, a glove to clean, a leather, another bucket and £50 later I get home to not only notice it's missing the Alfa engine cover but also that I'm missing BOTH the correct size spanner and socket.
Today I realised she has a soul.
