    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    getting an annoying fault tone the minute I engage reverse... am aware it could be a number of things and don't currently have the inclination to diagnose it so how do I disconnect the control unit? not even sure where it is... I don't use it anyway really. car is an 07 GT blackline...
  2. How can bulbs be so difficult? Stupid 166!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I am SOOO angry with the 166 tonight :rant: First the wiper blades and now this! It's not like I'm a mong when it comes to cars. I've taken engines out, reconditioned cylinder heads, replaced whole suspension setups etc etc. So why is the 166 so insistant on p*ssing me off with every simple...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
