Some new owner advice
Good Morning everyone!
Having moved closer to my work, my wallet can now cope with the outstanding mpg figures!
So, I have finally been able to scratch that Alfa itch I've had for years and picked myself up a little 147 Lusso over the weekend for my runabout.
I've found forums a great place and a wealth knowledge in the past with my Lotus's, so I have a couple of little questions that hopefully you guys can help me with!
1, The heated seats, all work fine, but I've finished my journey, get out, lock the car, it looks like they are still switched on? The little red light on the switch is still illuminated. Is this normal? Is it timed so it will shut itself off after a while? Just a bit cautious as I don't want to forget to turn it off, and wake up to a burnt seat and a flat battery.
2, It has what I have been told is commonly known as an 'alfa rattle' coming from the dash, sounds like it is coming from somewhere behind the central heater vent. Is this a common place for an 'Alfa rattle' and is it a case of pulling it apart and seeing what I can find?
3, The mileage display flashes non-stop? At roughly 1 second intervals? Not really a problem, just a little annoying. Is there a quick fix?
& finally 4, I will be after a set of 16" or 17" original 147 wheels for it as its on 15's at the moment. Is eBay or classified on here the best place to look?
Other than that, I'm extremely pleased with it so far.
I look forward to any tips!
