Surely an Alfa is all about style? This kills it dead.

Snow foamed it, washed it, dried it, then waxed it, looked fine.

Then mother nature washed it again for me.

159 3.2 Q4 Lusso

Washed it.

Spoke to Loz @ Autolusso about spending lots of money on sorting niggly bits.

Pondered doing a write-up on my first 6 weeks of 159 ownership.

Busy week for Bella this week, started with a triple dose of Rhino, full service on Thursday and 2 new tyres this morning after discovering my front inners had scrubbed down almost to the cords. Now also laser tracked to zero toe on the front after reading the thread....wish I'd read that thread before!

Well over 500 spent but running like a dream now though so well happy

Finally got round to fitting an oil catch can. Not too difficult apart from different sized pipes i hooked upto needing 3 different hose diameters and hose connectors. Lets see if it catches any oil

After 105,000 miles and two years since I put GIR in, original Power Steering reservoir started to bubble over.
Replaced with new one and fresh fluid - hopefully fixed!

Put some coolant in as it had seemingly all gone, with intermittent overheating.

Hope I don't have a leak as I have a 250 mile round trip to do tomorrow...

Pre-MOT checks on suspension and subframes led to 90 minutes per corner cleaning, lubricating and waxoyling, ready for another winter.

Underneath of car is now very black, including sills and all obvious surfaces.
All suspension bushes now very clean and silicone lubed.
Also cleaned the rear prop shaft suspension bushes.
Even cleaned the inside of the wheels. Big pile of empty product canisters to show for it!
