Had a few days fettling. Replaced main beam bulb on 156 - horrible job which nearly dislocated my wrist trying to release the springs. Replaced window switch, slightly realigned bonnet shut lines, adapted Tom Tom mount to fit on top of central dashboard vent/info display, replaced wiper blades on 156 and wife's 147. My new thermostat arrived this morning but it started raining so came in & spent afternoon reading the alfaowner forums and will fit that tomorrow.
Last Saturday I had a new cam belt & water pump fitted by Kevin at Sussex Alfa Romeo near Brighton. What a fantastic service, it only took him 3 hours and while I was there he plugged in his code reader and identified a slight misfire which was fixed with a new plug along with giving the car a general inspection. He really knows these cars and only charged me one third of the price I was quoted by an official dealer that is only 400 yards from my house in Portsmouth.
