    Alfa Giulietta
    car park gremlins have struck - dinged in the crease of the passenger door (no paint damage) and what looks like a bear clawed the driver door through the varnish (but not into the paint) - probably some shopper with a handbag that had buckles am off to a decent paintshop to see if they can...

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Sud Passed the MoT today! happy days! It had a mini tune up before It passed as well - one side was running rich by 6 turns of the screw and the other side was running rich by 2 turns. Can't wait to get back out in it! Hasn't been MoT for 2 months - or ran out shortly after Brooklands

    :cry: Someone lobbed a stone at my GT last night while it was parked outside my house. Hit the passenger door low down and left a dent. Good thing is there's minimal paint damage and some polish will sort that. Another good thing is that I know a paintless dent repairer who is quite frankly...

Now I'm aware from what...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    See? The 166 isn't that unreliable! Sailed straight through the MOT with an advisory on the front tyres, which I'll replace when I've decided what to go for. Come to think of it, it's not actually gone wrong yet While it was there, had the variator done. Car now much happier. Suspension squeak...
