Hope you all have had a nice Easter?
I have a question (or a few) and hoping at least one has faced the problem when refitting original fascia etc.
I have a Alfa 147 Q2 and I have fitted (well almost) an after market unit, I think I still need to get a double din mount as the darn...
my 2.0 TS is drinking fuel, now, i know i have a heavy foot... BUT, 17 miles from 10 pounds is SH*T!
If anyone can give me some pointers as where to start looking for faults i would hugely appreciate it!
Recently bought a 147 2.0l TS, lovely car well looked after, runs really well goes like a rocket, BUT we've only done 700 miles and had to put 10 litres of oil in, no symptoms except belching out BLACK smoke when accelerated hard and a whistle from the engine bay above 2800 revs which sounds...

But, I was told this is rather normal. In fact some people say, "if it doesn't, feel blessed, if it does, think nothing of it!Just give her more!"
Thus I really would like to meet someone that could say:
A very nice lady thoughtfully decided to smash into our Mito, Astra and front garden wall. :mad:
Then tried to leave the scene.:tut:
She was arrested after she blow over 3 times the limit.
She still hasn't bothered the contact her insurance company yet.
Insurance company now notified...
I got home from work the other night and was looking at GTA stuff on ebay and found a number plate seller that had a link to a site where you can design your own plates, to cut a long story short i designed a plate i liked and 2 pints of gin and bitter lemon later i had spent £20 ( and another...
Anyone got any thoughts on this ?
The proposal is to cut the limits from80mg/100ml to 50mg/100ml, about one small glass of wine or just less than a pint of standard beer.
This would obviously affect people living in rural areas.
Personally would go for zero, i.e. if you drink at all you don't...
