  8. Alfa MiTo
    Yesterday as i was driving to McDonald's i noticed a very loud rattling noise and a knocking coming from the rear of the car, so i pulled over immediately and took a look underneath. The exhaust had come away from its mounts and had sagged down, and the sound must of been from the back box...

Reason being, I was looking through all the old service bills from my car, and I can find loads for replacing various parts, with some bills totalling more than 600 quid... but none for the timing belt or 72k service. Now the guy I bought it...
