I probably have shoes older than him. I'm betting this is the only car he owns:

Back to the thread, what have I done today??

Laughed very hard by the last dozen posts!!!

It's just a shame there's such a slim chance that AlfaBreraNew would find him or herself at a set of lights next to clogz or cozy!!

Took advantage of the break in the weather to give it a good preparation ready for the gritting to begin.

We made a run to the garden centre and I actually used the "ski tunnel" (for that's what it's called in the owner's manual index) for the first time. Quite useful, really. Except, I call mine the "garden stake tunnel" now.

Must admit the photos make it look better than it is.
There are lots of stone chips and car park dents that will need sorting in the summer.

I recommend Bilt Hamber Hydro Wax. Its a liquid form Carnauba Wax, really easy to apply and buff off. Just make sure the body work is fully prepared ready for the application.

The "Alfatune" full works
60mm Core Full size RS500 FMIC
AEM W/M Injection
Koni struts / Novitec springs
Grooved & Dimpled discs and pads
19" Prodrive wheels, Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Halo's HID's & LED's
Hub dyno'd at well over 500lbft at the wheels ! and that's limited.
Thats over 750 Nm for you figure fiddlers

sorry.

I can't take you seriously
Why does driving a diesel not allow you to take him seriously ???? --- perhaps you've not been to Le Man and watched various diesels perform. I compete in a petrol car but still drive a diesel on road , albiet remapped etc. A rather wide rash statement , especially when you haven't met the persons commented on . (Jay , Ned and myself / James May etc)

This is what happens when nice cars start to become within reach of the main stream. You start to get a certain "type" of people trying to join in....

Welcome to owning an Alfa. Sure you'll fit right in here

RE -- banter

The problem with the ' printed ' word is that your face can't be seen nor your voice heard , so attitude can't be assessed , hence rudeness isn't easy to pick out from banter
