Left mine unattended at home. I do hope she is OK. I do worry.

Thrashed it at every opportunity on the way to work, like I do every day.

Hit 500miles with an average 27mpg. Mix of all kinds of roads and a... fairly heavy foot!

Oh and a new key cover!

Giulia 2.0

Picked mine up from the dealers after having the battery replaced and washed it when I got home.

Just had a George delivered to help keep the beige interior clean. Still got the dark winter mats in, may clean the original beige mats with George on Sunday.

Drove home in the sunshine with the roof window open. Worth every penny on a day like today

Where did you get the keyring? I am looking for something that wonít scratch the key but looks good. I think this fits the bill but not seen it before.

I have this key ring in the version they sold a couple of years ago when the badge was embossed rather than silver. Suits my car with its carbon mirrors and interior bits. https://store.ferrari.com/en-co/keyh...783976105.html
I've got a 4C Carbon key ring too. Pretty difficult in use.

Looks nice but a bit pricey! There really is a dearth of quality leather alfa keyrings out there.

I wonít buy a metal one after the mess the last one made of my 159 key. Lots more of those on sale though.

Giulia Speciale.

Bought one!! Now the proud owner of a 17 plate Speciale, in Vulcano metallic black. Still have my 58 plate 159 Ti sportwagon and the 16 plate Giulitta Speciale as well. Anyone know of anyone looking for a 159 Ti Sportwagon?

Sounds like it's going to be good weather for the long weekend, so ...

May Detailing competition now open for entries https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/car-d...n-entries.html

Don't let the title put you off, it doesn't have to be a full detail, a wash & a clean will do, if the car looks good take some pics & submit them, please include some info on what you have done to the car

Check out the updated rules here https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/car-d...ion-rules.html

Finally got around to cleaning my winter wheels so I could put them on the wall mounts - they've been on the floor of the garage for a month, constant guilty conscience.

Finally took the mangos sticker off the rear. So easy to do with a hair dryer. So much better now.

I would have made them do it. I once took my 159 in for a service (at a standard all makes garage - mistake) and it was returned with new number plates showing the garageís name! I was livid. I didnít pay until I had the plates replaced and took the cost off the bill.

Cheeky fu£@er$... I don't blame you, I would have gone through the roof.

Didnt escape epic road trip to far north of Scotland scot free. Hit a pothole in the Borders. Gob-smacked the tyre stayed up - see pics. Into the dealer this week. Braced for bad news about bent suspension compos but delighted to get the car back today after new wheel, tyre, first service and clean bill of health. Good job by Research Garage Nuneaton.

Great to have the car back after a couple of days in something else.
