    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So the front driver side wheel on my Brera is warped. Doesn't cause too many issues as long as you keep blow 80mph.

    Hi all, The fuel hose from the fuel filter to the engine has split on my GT and has resulted in diesel being squirted all over the filter and down on the exhaust (which was kind of a smoky experience). It seems to have worn through the braiding and the hose itself by rubbing on the fuel filter...
