BRERA NEWBIE - what to look out for
This monday I became the proud owner of a one owner 2006 blue 3.2 SV JTS Q4 - my first Alfa and first coupe.
Its done 37k miles and I am changing discs and pads next week, giving it a full service and have ordered a set of Dunlop Sport Maxx tyres (its got 17" multispoke alloys).
What do I need to look out for on this model re the engine and suspension (bushes etc)?
It had an advisory at the last mot for track rod ends which I'll also change and the oil level sensor is kaput judging by the recurring P0520 code, though the oil temp gauge is working. (the oil level display does show prior to starting)
The drive back from the shady dealer was 'interesting'. I thought I'd been stitched up as it knock and vibrated badly, something I didn't notice on the demo drive. Turns out the rear nearside wheel bolts were all loose by a good 2 turns. I assume they had not been tightened properly and worked loose. Is this a common occurence or even an indication of other problems?
