    General Alfa Discussion
    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. Most of it comes down to money, and a bit of common sense. So as of 13:00 on Thursday my...

    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...
