Out of work, nipping out the shop for supplies, ENGINE WARNING LIGHT kicks in and limp mode. No chance of a dealer looking at it until next week so that’s my weekend plans to pootle to Wales nerfed.
Arse. 7k miles. Bet it’s something stupid too.
Hope it rains now.

Travelling down to Llanduno for easter is there anything happening down there? Meets/runs?
Are the police still keen on speeding down the a55 ? cos i got a speeding ticket there a few years back.:cry:
I'm heading over to the continent in the 156 this weekend, meeting up with my brother, so we're hitting the Nurburgring yet again on Saturday. If anyone's around... I'll be in the Green rocket!!!! Don't be shy.
PS the forecast is excellent :D

This one was an epic, not so much the job planned to do, but the fact i did all this in sub zero temperatures outside in frost that is a week old!!
I posted a topic earlier (that was largly ignored) about my brakes making a funny noise, after inspection, i realised i...

The origional work began here:
Now, today (21/10/07) was a fun day, i had only a few hours to work on the car and so much i wanted to do. The main job of the day was to fix the heavily...
I'm looking at purchasing a used Brera 2.2SV and have found one that I am 99% sure I will put a deposit on this weekend.
Couple of questions, I have had a 146 and a 147 in the past (BMW at the moment) and I had my fair share of trouble with the Alfa's (new cylinder head 146 new gearbox 147).
Just thought I''d quiz a few of you I'm very much a novice at changing/cleaning stuff in the engine and doing some pre winter checks, looking at some of the threads i can see one or two issues I'm having with my 1.8ts, Could anyone tell me where the MAF sensor is in the engine so I can clean it...
What a weekend. I have spent most of my time doing some major/minor repairs to the cloverleaf. Here goes:
First of all were the rear brakes, Before:
And after, 6 hours later (bleedin calipers!!!!):
Then on sunday, i decided to rebuild the throttle body to fix the dodgy Idle.
Hope it is a good one it is slightly worrying that 10% have been returned as reported by the poll. I have seen the car before it's PDI I was amazed that they wrap the car and seal the boot and passenger doors.
I have had company cars for the past 24 years this is the first new car that I have...
Is anyone else heading to Silverstone this weekend to watch any of the Ferrari celebrations - the Old Man obviously learned his craft well with his last employer before branching out on his own. Hopefully there will be a good collection of classic cars, and the F1 races should be good...
