Quick Update from Me.
I've accepted a settlement offer from my Insurance Company to end my battle against Benfield and Alfa in regard to the Hesitation issue and other issues.
Despite being courted by Western Alfa to move into another Alfa I have decided enough is enough and I wont be purchasing another Alfa, once bitten twice shy.
I am keeping the Spider, only because I was offered a pathetic £6,500 for it (May 2007 2.2JTS, Blue&Me, Bose, CD Changer, 89,000 miles, 18" 7-hole, Red), so its just not worth getting rid, it will be used by my partner as a spare car.
I have taken delivery of a stunning Maserati GranTurismo S which just makes me smile in a way the Alfa just made me growl, I had forgotten what exceptional Customer Service Graypaul offer.
Good luck to everyone on here, thanks for your support, but unfortunately poor Customer Service and a Company that would rather issue legal threats than fix the problem finally did it for me.
