Just had a pre MOT check (with my local trusted mechanic - not an alfa specialist but he's had a few through the doors) and had a few quids worth of bits to sort.
The car's been stored for 3 years and there's nothing on there that's a surprise. I'm looking at getting it back on the road on a budget so going for OEM parts rather than upgrades.
I've had a dig around online, via my local mechanic and come up with the following cheapest prices. How does the below compare to what others have had done.
I guess I should get off my ass and do some of it myself, but time and lack of knowledge are against me. How easy are some of these bits to do?
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
