    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Alfa Lovers! I have yet another little question….. When you press the button on the remote locking key, the car locks and makes a beep. If you press the lock key again, the lights flash once, no beep….. What does that mean? Dead lock? Silent Mode? Look at me? Please advise……...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As the thread says. I have always owned petrol Alfa,s and they have always had light clutches. IE, the clutch pedal feels like the accelerator pedal. But as this is my first Diesel, its harder to press, for me it feels like it has a heaver spring which you are pushing and holding when it comes...
