  3. Alfa MiTo
    Hello there I am writing as a new Mito owner. I have the car for 2 months and since I bought it I have been annoyed for the such owfull speakers it has! I decided then to add a subwoofer and magically all my problems solved! I bought a 250w rms(800w peak) sub with an amplifier and cables all...

    Well it was looking a tad sorry for itself, clearly never cleaned in its life. After 3hrs this is where I am, just need to sort injector rail and I will be happy.

    Now that I've commissioned a rebuild of the spider, bought this MOT failure for £200 at the weekend as a donor. Seems a shame to break it. Was this anyone's car at some point? Its got a very comprehensive service history. V701 JBM. PS Does anyone need anything?

  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Full vac and clean inside (not mucky anyway..) and a full wash and dry outside with the usual snowfoam etc. Looks cracking now. It'll be my last day with it on Tuesday.

    As the title really. How much is the most you have spent trying to fix a problem, where the garage/dealer/mechanic has totally failed. So far I have had 4 trips to two different repair shops (one an independent, the other a main dealer), spending a total of £80, then £295, and finally £445...

    Despite the poor conditions today I managed to get a couple of hours if dry weather to get to work on my 156 V6. Car was washed with Autoglym shampoo, then chamoised dry.
