What's all the fuss about?

Just got my first baby Alfa.

It's a 147 and a bit neglected by it's last owner, After getting back from a ****e train ride and a 100 mile drive back there was little to no oil in there! Wish I would of checked first!
No windscreen wash, the blades were perished on her as well

But did have the Cam belt changed 5 months ago!

So a ltr of oil got her half way up the dip stick, some w/wash and some new blades today!

So ordered 8 spark plugs, oil, oil filter, air filter and a can of bg44k all ready for saturday morning. Poor little thing!

it's also a little lumpy bubpy if you dont turn the asr off in the middle before setting off? any ideas?

The joys of an alfa!

I grew up in them, my father had 3 when I was a boy so lets see how this one fairs?
