    and what should I see but a grille-less 145 bonnet peeking over the fence from the top of a stack of cars.

  7. Can a V6 advance timing past 97RON?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    To take 'advantage' of higher RON petrol (Optimax)? My owners manual says it's set up for 97RON (EDIT:'Over 95 Ron' to be precise, which I guess is the same thing), so I'm guessing not, unless I want to take advantage of cleaning my valves... And it doesn't clean your injectors either. The...
