First Alfa Experience Ruined...
Hi, ive been waiting for years to be able to afford my first alfa and the other day I finally bought one; 08 plate black LE spider with tan leather, it was perfect... for 3 hours. I found myself driving up buxton road close to where I live and all of a sudden the check engine warning light comes on with a rythmic rattling, its a 2.2 jts, it was in time with the engine and would happen at idle and increase with revs applied. So on my first day of ownership I fell in love with it then watched it be towed away on a truck... ****ty night to be honest. any experienced opinions, i know a little and it may be a cracked exhaust manifold but ive barely looked at the engine!
Also to anyone at the alfa meet at gawsworth hall last weekend, it was an awesome day, great to see a good turnout!
