Got myself a lovely Alfa Silver 147Ti 1.9JTD 16v, first Alfa and wont be the last!
Great forum by the way, have picked up some real gems of advice such as the door strap replacement which was really bugging me from day one but didnt realise it was so easy and fairly cheap to resolve.
Changed both front door straps within an hour!-sorted
Had fuse box lid banging which I found out was the screw clips had broken, a common thing also apparently but only a few pence from to replace.
Although these things are design faults with the car I enjoy having to tinker with it.
Bit of bad luck also is that a damn pothole has buckled my wheel which I'm currently trying to claim off the council for, anyone who has the Ti wheels be aware I have been quoted nearly £400 from the dealers just for the one rim as they are specials!!
The wheel issue has taken the shine off the car at the moment as the steering wheel wobbles which bugs me all the time, so can't wait for the council to cough up so I can sort it.
Thanks for reading!
