    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The top of my handle is starting to be detached from the door card. I almost pulled off the handle today when closing my door but luckily the bottom tip of the handle is still attached. Any other GT owner experienced the same thing before? I assume this is going to be an easy fix?

  13. Second broken Giulia windscreen

    Alfa Giulia
    That's two in 13 months (18000 miles) and 3 separate cracks in my Amarok pick-up in 3 years (actually 4 but one was a branch falling from a tree - so that was understandable). This is a fairly recent phenomenon for me, are they getting thinner/weaker, maybe to save weight.
