alfa 147 2lt petrol T spark (manual)
ok just got back from my tour of france and spain, covered a few thousand miles, the alfa was spot on, until we got 70miles to Caliais.... basically lost 5th gear (kept popping out), so went down to 4th this also did the same thing, so down to 3rd...
Just dropped my car off at Betacar as I know it needed some wishbone bushes replacing.
Turns out it needs all the bushes replacing in the front wishbones and its cheaper to replace the whole lot but that £244 inc vat!!

There I was my 1989 red 75 3 ltr v6 been sat in a dark and lonely car park awaiting some much needed TLC, Both clutch and valve seals blown on a fast run between Norwich and Cardiff, july 2003 resulting in a repair bill of over 1200 pounds... well not made of money, so it will become my project...

while washing my car yesterday and standing back and generally admiring my handywork (and the car of course:p )it struck me that the 156 veloce would benifit (in my opinon) from a low profile spoiler-not one of those horrid ones that take up half the back window!! so before i rush out and buy...
Just out of interest I got an insurance quote for my 156 with nitrous :rolleyes:
I paid about £600 last year totally standard. Adrian Flux quote £630 with nitrous.
Thats for a 26yo with 8years ncb, 3 points, and a 156 v6. Very tempted just for the novelty. :p
Made some tough decisions over the weekend, but in my mind the right ones, and I'm afraid my S Reg V6 beauty is gonna have to go, and unfortunately no other current Alfa fits the bill for her replacement.

I have a 147 selespeed with a mileage of 40k. It's developed a slight graunching noise when i change up between 2nd and 3rd. Is the gearbox about to fail big time or is it just a simple prob?
I'm off on honeymoon for 3 weeks and are going to leave the GTV

to drain in this time (alarm left on) ??
I know it must depend a bit of the current state of the battery - but its ok

Once upon a time (about 4 months ago), I had the displeasure to be hit from behind by a truck. rant Luckily, he had nearly stopped and only the bumper was dented, a simple replacement job. :rolleyes: Went through the usual Insurance rigmarole and because there was no dispute as to who was...
