How much for a

No I didn't pay anything, Alfa paid for everything under the warranty but the total cost would have been just over £2000. Apparently its a fault with some of the early 200bhp 2.4 jtd's. I work with a guy with an 06 or 07 159 2.4 and he has had the exact same problem. Im sure there are some threads on here about it somewhere.
Anyway, yes it is a large sum of money but I didn't have to pay it so I wasn't fussed and I like my car to much to get rid of it. Looking at the reciepts, the most expensive thing by far is the labour,the new injectors cost around £600 and I think the intake manifold cost about £200ish. I was actually treated very well by my dealer and they fixed the probelm as quickly as they could. I don't know if it a major or minor fault. Apparently its not as bad as it sounds, its just labour intensive to get to the problem. Anyway hope this has helped and not scared the life out of you.
