Wouldn't mind mine doing underneath as the company I work for and others on the ind estate have the road and car parks salted every time the temps hit zero degrees, can't be doing the underside any good whatsoever
£80... didnt think it was too bad so asked for it on top of the service.
159's do suffer form rusty sub frame issues so a preventative measure cant hurt
In fairness, if you have the right kit, this is a very easy (messy) job. I did mine last year when I got it. A can of Waxoyl and a little pump. Jack the car up and spray in all the nooks and crannies. Took me about 2 hours and cost about £20, plus got all the gear to do the girlfriends car when she gets one...
Just got my baby back to-day from Alexanders, main Alfa dealer in Stockton. (they have 2 4C's in the showroom). I'm £2500 lighter in the wallet, but I think it was worth it. Bonnet re-sprayed, full Alfa OE body kit supplied, painted and fitted. Last bit is Autodelta back boxes which arrive next week.
Took my new Spider out with the top down for a drive to Stow on the Wold..... and got a parking ticket!
I will be appealing as I was parked in a council car park and it wasn't clear I was not supposed to park in that bay
Got it mud splatted by an unknown rally car at Race Retro - I was parked too near the rally stage! Changed the bulbs in the left rear cluster after the brake light blew and the indicator bulb dropped behind the Bose subwoofer. Saw a really neat graphic on the centre display telling me which ones were out!
What have I done today to my 159 Ti? I've liberated the engine! I had a remap done, EGR delete and DPF removed. I now have 40 more horses under the bonnet. The difference is amazing, especially at low revs/part throttle. It feels so much more responsive. Only 650€ for the whole job, by Alfa expert Florian Stoffolo of GTOptimisation.com in the Paris region where I live.
Lots of fun in store (speed cameras and weather permitting...)!
