Good assesment. Took the car to the garage this morning and getting 17v from the alternator, causing the battery to boil. getting alternator and battery changed, (there goes another £350 into the Alfa Abyss).
Ironically, my windows have been very slow, passenger side especially, for a few months now, to the point where it will move an inch, then stop, move and inch..... Maybe this will get sorted in the process!
The car has always blown a lot of bulbs.
Having had clutch / pump / belt replacement, complete wiper assembly, lower suspension arms all changed within a year, the car is almost new! but I'm thinking maybe time to move on.... :-(
