146 TI


Hi All,
Just bought a 1999 146 TI for the princely sum of 200 two weeks ago.
Got it on the road and MOT'd now its all the little things people tell me bring character to the Alfa experience.
No heaters lights
Rear screen doesn't work. No voltage to wire at all (although the light and relay seem fine)
A trickle from the screen jets
Rear bearing rumble (today's job)

I had a 1991 civic Vtec before this and never had to do a thing to it. Sadly the bodywork recycled itself though.

I have to say In spite of the "issues" Its a good car for any money!

I would describe myself as inexperienced with mechanics, although I will have a go at anything.

Joined the forum for every body elses experiences and to know I'm not alone.
