Well I did get this repaired, but whilst it was a lot better, it still wasn't perfect.
The average person wouldn't have noticed it, but I did and every time I came back to the car it didn't put a smile on my face.
So I kept an eye on eBay and eventually 'won' a new front for £100 and got it painted and fixed for £150. Got the car back today and now I get the smiley feeling.
Especially as at the same time the bodyshop cleared up a couple of little issues, a small reversing mistake and painted my callipers at the same time.
Sadly I only had the car for 30 mins, enough time to drive it to Alfa Tecnico for service, cam belt and a multiple of other niggles. So I'm in an 04 plated 156 loan car. Not quite the same!
