146 Across Continent

Hi guys,

Just wanted to say hi before posting or requesting anythying.

I've had a '99 146 1.4 for two years now and overall I like it very much.

It was bought in Spain and I recently drove it to Iceland. The whole trip was nearly 4000km.

I had two breakdowns. First one was a busted alternator which was changed overnight.

Second incident was a leak in the shaft seal and the gearbox was running dry for god knows how long! It caused violent vibrations, but luckily the nearest garage was close by and got it fixed up before major harm was done (I hope).

Alfas aren't too popular here in Iceland and people keep telling me that they're bad for this climate...I guess we'll see
