Hi everybody newbie here,i have had my 156 for seven years now and can honestly say it's the best car i've ever owned.
I have always loved the look of alfas but was always wary of the reputation of unreliability,my car has started first time every time since day one and i was always dreading the day it went to the big scrapheap in the sky.
MOT time arrived and those honest gentlemen in overalls decended on my old pride and joy with an all knowing glint in their beady eyes.
One hour later i'm pacing like an expectant father (which i currently am) he approaches like the grim reaper with the news "it'ssss failed on't emissionssss"
GUTTED! now my beloved missus keeps telling me it's gonna cost more to repair than it's worth and they're doing a great deal down the bloggs dealership with the scrappage scheme.
Herein my rock and a hard place/s, i cannot afford a new alfa even with the scrappage scheme,i do not want a naff run of the mill one,do not want to split with my other half,do not want to send my 156 to the knackers yard.
(ps will be posting on the tech section for any help with the emission problem
