New engine disaster
My girlfriend and I own a spider we bought 18 months ago. It's a w reg and was registered in 2001. 2 days ago the engine let go in a puff of white smoke. The alfa garage said a piston perforated the cylinder but they can't tell me the cause without me spending alot of money. I got told we need to replace the engine and got quoted £3,810. With 52k miles on the clock you can imagine I'm not terribly impressed. And YES there was plenty of oil in the engine. Anybody help... any advice? any similar experiences?
