Hello out there all you Alfamales and females! Here's my introduction to you all. Just joined today so a bit unsure of my way round the site for the moment. Will get into it all soon Im sure.
Bought a 2.0 TS GTV, last week for my girlfriend I live with, from my brother. He had it for 5years but he's got a company car now so was going to waste on his drive. Always fancied an Alfa, but with 2 kids and a large Afghan Hound to transport round, life would have been pretty tight in it! Now got the excuse to own one along side my own company car and what a great decision it was. The noise coming from inside the engine bay sounds like nothing else. I had an old Lotus Elan S4 once with twin DCOE Webers, but this sounds even that much throatier! Don't think my partner is going to get the chance to drive it all that much now I've got the spare key.
Only one problem I've found with it so far....the bonnet open warning light keeps coming on intermittently on the dashboard and can't find the switch in the engine bay to check for earths etc...anyone got any ideas where it is? I found an earth strap on the RHS bonnet catch but just seems to be connected to a nut bolted through the bonnet soundproofing felt and doesn't go anywhere else?????
Any help would be appreciated...it's driving me nuts.
