Re: First alfa

cheers guys!

Looking forward to driving it!

I am thinking about doing something about the brakes tho, they are a bit spongy, with a good deal of lever travel. Any suggestions? (they do stop you, but have no feel)

Re: First alfa

New fluid, braided lines, new discs and pads should suffice. You probably don't know when or what they have been changed too.

Re: First alfa

Wow, congratulations man !!! I'm in Navan and hopefully my 75 will be up and running soon (have the bits, just need a free weekend!!). It's also a 2.0 TS (but in black). Hopefully the 2 old boys can be re-united soon

EDIT : And now you can change your 'Location' from 'I would rather not say' to 'Drogheda' :P :P
