  1. quick anti-roll bar question

    Alfa 164 & 166

  2. Anti-roll bar parts covered by a shop bought warranty?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've just had the anti-roll bar links and bushes replaced on my GT for just shy of £300. It's only a 2006 with approx 38k on the clock. Would this be even worth the effort to fill in a claim form? (I've never claimed under a warranty before) Cheers
