4800Km checkup just done

Just had my lady in for her first check and all is well....

Although I have only covered 4800 km's she has not missed a beat, she just loves the twisty stuff, and really, all you need do is leave her in third, and Whooosh off we go... The fuel consumption is unreal, I'm getting about 45-49mpg of mixed driving...and she cruises effortlessly @ 100-120Kmph..a real joy to drive, while most other road users (people not driving Alfa's!) have to back off for corners, we just sail through, but I do dab the breaks now and then. Just so they know I have them
Now that I have my manual in English I see that replacing the T-Belt (diesel version) is 150,000Km's or every 4yrs which ever comes first, I'm glad to see they seem to have sorted the T-Belt problem.. Time will tell.

Niggles (in the spirit of FRS18)

My manuals & Service book were all in French. sorted the manuals, service book on back order...

driver arm rest, I find this gets in my way changing gears, but not a problem
Sun glasses won't fit in the overhead compartment...Not that I'm worried
Not having engine oil in stock...they are to send it on to me....

And that's about it...except to say....she is a stunning lady to drive...
