Hi and welcome :wave:

Sad to hear about your car, with italian models they can be so funny with you if they're not looked after properly. Did you receive any history with it?

I presume it is under warrenty, so best to breakdown now whilst it costs the garage money to fix.
I have same car, less than 3 weeks, has been in for warranty repair twice now, luckily no breakdowns, yet
So what is worng with yours?
