gtv anti-freeze

anyone know if you must use alfa's anti-freeze in the gtv, or can you use any ethylene glycol based anti-freeze ?

also are there any bleed valves on the cooling system ?

No - it's bog standard Ethylene Glycol.

I don't think there's much more to changing it than just making sure that once you've filled it up you leave the heater on full with the fan on and the engine running for a while, to make sure the coolant percolates everywhere.
