    Is it possible that the people at alfa could have made it any harder to change the little park light about the Xenon. Has anyone ever change it or do they simply put it on the to hard list?

    I picked up the pre reg (05) 156 1.8TS Veloce from Monza Sports 3 weeks ago and have done just over a thousand miles. I love it. Its an absolute beauty. The handling is crisp and precise and gives a wonderful ride. The fuel consumption is a bit high but I am led to understand that evens out...
