    Alfa MiTo
    Hi everyone. It is my turn to solve the dreaded M32 problems this car has. The bright side is that I see that this gearbox has become well known and the fixes seem less scary than they there 5 years ago. Problem is, we don't have workshops who specialize in those gearboxes specifically since...
