Without wishing to **** on your bonfire, a 156 TS is probably one of the easiest oil changes there is as long as the sump plug plays ball. I've lost count of the number of cars I've had where the filter is buried down at the back somewhere completely inaccessible.

25 minutes is still going some though.

It got me thinking that an inter-region oil-change-off could be quite entertaining.

Posh? Me ****! BTW I don't live in the house anymore.... I live in the garage (aka Doghouse) over all the Alfa meets I've been going to in recently.... That's ok though because the bank owns the house, I own the garage...

Anyway I just went outside tonight to the 156 and did a oil/filter chnage just to prove a point..... 24mins dead! Beat that...

Bring it on..... and we should do it near a beach on a windy day too for the craic... no wait, do it at night, drunk with no metal tools.... oh wait that just sounds weird... sorry..



EDIT: Ok I lied about the 24 mins. but it's a Sat night so that's ok.
