Alfa newbie

Hi, my names Rick from Manchester, just bought a 147 1.6 lusso for the missus. Not the 1st Italian car I've had, but we both wanted an Alfa. Had a Lancia as my 1st car. One of the most fun cars I've driven.
The Alfa has a few issues but hoping to sort them. It has the sat nav and phone head unit. Need to source a disk for it.
Been reading up on the forum for past 2 weeks. Help an idea on fixing the issues. One thing I've noticed is the 2nd market for uprated stuff isn't as strong as what I'm used to. (Had a few French hot hatches) as i was considering a stainless exhaust as will last longer. The gear lever is sloppy, and think the flex pipe is cracked on the y pipe cat section.
