    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I bought my 159 SW two years ago in November. It came with a pretty comprehensive Alfa service history and around 80k. Two weeks ago after many high cost mechanical issues the fitting of a new steering rack,was what I hoped, would be the end of encountering just about every known fault of 159...

    Right. So I had my 159 for 2 weeks before the MAF and EGR needed replacing. This evening my tea was disturbed by the alarm going off. The bloody thing has only gone and rolled down the drive and hit the corner of my garage. The bonnet and front have both a nice neat vertical crease through...
