well, got car back on friday from Heath Road garage in Sandbach, what a top bunch of guys they are would highly recommend. done close to 300 miles over the weekend and the selespeed hasnt mis-behaved a bit (touch wood). i am getting the motor control error coming up again, the crank sensor has been replaced and a new second hand MAF fiited as mine had a K&N on. Ive got myself an ELM327 lead and Multiscan & DNECUDIAG (which is best) so will have a look when i have the chance. After that new key fob or Info Centre, anyone selling a good one?
Also had this reply regarding the lateness of my cars registration.
Dear Mr Darlington,
Thank you for contacting Alfa Romeo.
Further to your request, we would like to inform you that your Alfa Romeo 156 was originally part of a batch of vehicles meant to be sold outside of Europe. Your vehicle was imported into the UK by an independent importer, and it was them who supplied the DVLA with the vehicle information present on your registration document.
Regrettably, we will be unable to assist further with this request. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience this may cause you.

i have requested they send me a formal letter stating my car is a JTS and not a TS so i can approach VOSA about having the details corrected.
