Thanks for all your your replies, you have meade me feel very welcome here.
Think I spoke to soon about getting those minor problems sorted though . . . . .
My GTV recently failed its MOT due to excessive play in the rear trailing arms, no major problem i thought, just get some new ones fitted, a bit of an expense, not enough to break the bank, and definitely worth doing it to keep it on the road . . . .
Then, when the garage tried to fit them, they found that one of the mountings on the aliminium sub frame was broken, they tried to weld it but with no success and now I need to replace the whole rear sub frame just to get it back on the road again, gutted!!!!
May even end up having to write the thing off!!!!
Anyone got any ideas?
anyone ever had the same trouble? anyone have any idea of cost or a decent alfa breakers where i may be able to pick one up in servicable condition.
Not a good start . . . . .
