2000 mile update & some piccies!

Hi all,

2000 miles now in my little silver lady. I have just started to really appreciate her.

Today we had some esr-off sessions, with some awesome b road driving from MK up to Brum on my old favourite - the A5.

Sounds amazing, and bearing in mind i have a naff variator, she feels amazing for a 120 engine.

Had a call from my friendly dealer today, they have decided to replace the gearbox! - for thise watching the prev thread, it started as what i thought was a wheel bearing, but now they are replacing the box!

Interior is amazingly comfortable, and i am getting 470 out of most tankfulls (how does that compare? Air con on 90% of time)

Another Q, is the asr simply a traction control, or is it a stability type thing?

Anyway, the photos are here at last, and my car rocks!!!!!!!

cheers all

ASR = Anti Slip Regulation = Traction control

The stability type thing is VDC (see my site for more details)

I usually had to refill after 470 ~ 480 as well with my 147 2.0 TS Selespeed. But I am talking kms and not miles now

Nice 147 BTW

470 miles from a 60 liter tank is 35 mpg ....whow thats excellent

Not a real fan of silver/grey cars but it seems to work on your car
Nice & clean, good man

That's nice. I like the last shot but it's a pity that the Alfa is cut.

You had some problems with the resize and upload, didn't you?
