Finally I Join AO

I guess late is better than never.

I bought my first Alfa in 2002, it was a three year old 146ti 2.0. The cooling system blew up on the M1 on the day I bought it, and the AA towed me back to the dealership. At least I got the sales managers gtv to drive whilst repairs took place.

After a number of similar failures over the next couple of months, the mechanics decided I needed a replacement engine, and after : No problems!

So three years later I replaced with a three year old 147 2.0 lusso. Firstly the window fell in to the door, twice. Then an "alfa trained technician" could not have put the new spark plugs in correctly, causing something to crack and allow a rather hot mixture to escape causing parts of the engine to melt. It was kindly fixed free of charge.

But that was four years ago, and and no problems since. Still driving the 147.

I am well and truly bitten by the Alfa bug. Hello fellow Alfitsi

Welcome to AO. To stick with the marque after that introduction is amazing but I'm glad you have been trouble free since.
