Heart break and parts for sale
I've been thinking about writing this post for the best part of nine months, I'm not the most out-spoken person or very active on here, but I'm going to try to put the effort. I don't want to waffle on and make this too much of a pity post as I know you want to find out what goodies I have going spare.
To cut a long story short, a not very nice man ran a red light and hit me head on and wrote off my lovely 159, my my I was glad to be in a five star car! I still haven't really gotten over it even now, I scan autotrader most days thinking about buying another and I will one day, but I've had my mother to look after recently. Still let me say, not one regret ever owning an Alfa, what a privilege it has been, not the easiest by far, I've had most of the common problems to deal with: egr, dpf, maf, rust, swirl flaps etc... but as they say, on the right road, with the right weather ... heaven.
From the ashes...
All of this has only made my love of Alfas stronger so now I'm the proud owner of a 147 Collezione in black with tan leather and would have you nursing a semi as Clarkson would say! It's been a bit of a problem child with some Cat D related issues that the seller forgot to mention, but nothing a bit of elbow grease and a stiff upper lip can't handle. But again another great Alfa with lots of soul and ... passion, oh crap another pound for the swear jar!
And now goodies...
I've got quite a few bits left over from the 159 including some brand new Brembo rear discs and pads which never made it onto the car, I've not quite got time to prices on everything right now as the 147 is nearly drained ready for a hard reset and fly by wire throttle reset, but if you want to make an offer or come and inspect anything (I'm in the LE7 area) your quite welcome. The fog light is spares as it flew off the car, most of the other bits are good used spares, the key is in near perfect confition, heres some pictures of what I have:
