Put it on charge as not been used in over a week & the CTEK indicator light was flashing red.

Need to get it washed etc & away, filling the space left by the departed GT then decide if I'm going part with it

Took her to a bodyshop for booking in Some kn0b in a council truck had his reg plate duck taped on...it flew off and cut a sizeable gouge in my front bumper)

Thankfully all caught on my trusty dash cam so insurance co. agreed to pay out no problem - didn't even have to pay my excess.

Good result in the end.
I really need to look into getting a dash cam.

Gave her a oil and filter change, Lucas SAE 5/40.
Already noticed the engine top end noise is quieter.
Any body else running this oil or has any feedback?
Cheers.

This is my only problem with the Brera, nowhere decent to stash the phone while you are driving.

It's this one here.

CD Slot Mount 360į Phone Holder with C Grip

Works really well. Just push it into the CD slot on the dash using some force for a tight fit. It holds all regular phones securely. I'm using the Waze app on my iPhone 5 as a satnav. Works perfectly.

No unsightly marks on the windscreen, drilling required or sticky pads required.

It comes out easily too when not needed.

After bring told someone knocked my car when parking theirs (they ended up with one wheel up the kerb too!) I moved mine, only for them to come back, told them to find easier places to park if they were incapable of parallel parking, especially knocking others cars in front of their windows....too far?

Definitely not too far giblets, you sound more courteous than I would've been under those circumstances.
I'd have been livid.
Any visible damage?

Difficult to tell, there are quite a few bits of paint missing off the vertical bits of the bumper either side of the grill (you know the parts!), that's in just two years since it was re-sprayed!

Yes you can. But obviously don't eject it whilst the holder is in the slot!

Ordered. Thanks. Couldn't say no at that price!

I had a phone mount I bought at Halfords months ago, but couldn't bring myself to stick it to anything. This clip seems a nice solution.

An electrician replaced two faulty cables that prevented the car from starting through the Start/Stop button. Works like a charm now!

Changed the aerial base on Saturday and got great reception so happy.

Washed it today and started to do the interior. Rear drivers side flooded. Deep water under the front and rear carpets on the drivers side so now I'm looking at having to strip the whole interior out to dry it out and then find the bloody leak.... Joy.

Moved my Brera for the first time in two weeks. Just down the road & back to the drive.

Gave her a really good wash, another short drive now garaged.

Still mulling over parting with here. Simply put, not getting used & I know how badly Alfa's react to that
