Alfa 145

Hello from ireland

Hi all,
Recently bought an alfa 145 1.4ts as a cheap runaround. My 3rd car following a toyota levin (gone ) and an mx5 (project)
A mere 600 quid and a trip to the otherside of the country secured this fairly rough example complete with tax, nct and a most likely fictional list of new parts it probably didnt get!
Reasons for purchase: room for a mountainbike,a chassis that will take a bolt on towhitch to pull a racebike and fill the car with the various baggage that comes with it, im mechanically up to it so i see no reason an alfa shouldnt run as well as anything else, and a 1.4ts would be ok to tax and insurance and ok on fuel, having 105-ish-bhp i reasoned it should be ok coming from a 1.6 too, and i refuse to drive a golf lol.
il see how that thinking pans out lol! insurance is crazy high (same as mx5 ffs) fuel economy after a major service (tbelt kit wpump oil filters maf) is fairly poor (30) but ive discovered a fair few oddities from standard so off i go to the technical section!
