Woo-hoo four out of four

I just got the telephone call from Stoneacre - my car has just passed its MOT first time - for the fourth year in succession (a couple of advisories this time though).

Whoever said Alfas are unreliable money pits is dead wrong nowadays.

This is the longest period that I have owned the same car and is now also the oldest car I have owned. I usually change when I get terminally bored with the car or it becomes not worth repairing - neither of these things is anywhere near the case yet.

13 (or is it 14?) mots .. two fails: 1) emissions when my throttle got very confused and 2) broken exhaust bracket, which I fixed with an exhaust clamp and it was still there for next six MOTs! and two passes with observations which were mainly rear tyre wear related (duff hub and transverse arm bushes)!

Think that is pretty good going!

Like any car, look after it and it will be reliable ...
