Re: Goodbye Alfa
Just returning to the forum briefly since I parted with me 156 in January after an eventful 103k miles to give you guys an update..
Bought a 1.6 FSI Golf in January. Despite the rave reviews the drive is very bland, no guts to the engine, only 3 more mpg than the alfa, the gearknob top came off and was quoted £50 to replace, it vibrated at 70mph despite checking the balancing and tracking, VW were going to charge me £42.50 to 'investigate' the worn brake pads even though the dashboard light told me they needed replacing, one rear brake light didn't work but after a week it swapped over to the other side, only speakers on front...etc. So, am now getting an Avensis..
Don't worry, I know I'll be back with an Alfa at some stage - there's nothing out there quite like them! Just need a little longer to build back my confidence (and bank balance)! See ya soon!
Don't worry. Things are getting nicely out of control.....
