    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all. Still loving the v6 and very pleased with my purchase after 6 days. I mentioned previously that it has a noisy tappet noise on cold start that goes away after a minute, and an occasional judder at idle. This morning was the first time I started the car in the proper frost so it...

  15. GT driver side window freezing shut

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all - I hope this is just because of the cold, and not an electrical problem - but after a particularly cold day, the driver side window didn't go down an inch while the door was opened. After that, the door either didn't close properly, or the sensor thought it was the case. I left the...
