Madness Turning six

It is claimed that dogs age seven years for every human year.

I suspect Alfas age at a rate of around 2.17 years to every year - which makes mine a teenager this year.

It's like watching the transformation of 'Kevin the Teenager'...

Suspension has started creaking - at both ends.

The clutch pedal recently came away from the hydraulic clutch.

The cruise control is 'off'.

The electric rear windows have turned temperamental.

The floor pans are rusting...

And it doesn't appreciate the fact that I've already spent over 500 quid on it (belts and service) this month and now the bloody exhaust is blowing raspberries at me ... from the vicinity of the cat!

I swear, I'll be kicking it out!

Going to see the powerfit people about making a custom exhaust - to see if it'll be cheaper than the dealer quote for cat and middle section.
