    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've had this issue a little while - like many people I guess, time is short and being able to leave the car at the garage and being car-less is something I've been putting off, as the only issue was when it is cold and needing to warm it up for a few mins. Anyway: 2001 (y) Alfa 147 1.6ts 105...
