    I put a deposit down in February on a new Giulia, a credit check was carried out for finance by the dealer and all came back ok as I thought it might do. Does anyone know when I come to collect the vehicle in May and complete the finance paperwork will they carry out another credit check again?

I looked at the MOT history check and in 2013 the...

    Hi Folks, I had my boost regulator valve off last night to check (I think I've a vac leak as she's stopping with a thud and turbo isn't coming in before 2000rpm as expected) and found that it doesn't hold air.

    In the movies, one always see the driver jump into a car and in few seconds take off. Well, this is not the case in reality, as far as I know, at least for me :) I wonder how long does it take to the alfaowners to prepare for take off... I've got a Giulietta 2.0 JTDM, and the routine which...

    Right all, I could really do with either the input of an MOT tester (if we have any on here) or someone with the same problem as me who has recently passed an MOT. What I really DON'T want to happen here, is for people who don't know the answer to present an opinion as if it's fact, because...
