  1. 'stat'

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    evening all, car takes 3 miles to warm up not to bad in this weather but consumption isn't really above 25mpg and occasionally fan kicks in when cold say 20s after starting!:wow: stat or sender:confused:

    General Alfa Discussion
    Got a 17" set of Alessio Monza's on my V6 with 205/40 rubber on them...in the last ten months and 4000 miles I've managed to break two of them (physically craked and bent) and bend one of them....on all four the lacquer is peeling and the wheels are looking tatty... they are no more than 15...
