This is the car I was asking about last week. It's doing 330 miles per week. I was just out having a look at it. It sounds like a diesel, tapping sound from the first cylinder area from what I can tell. Another ominous sign is the mayonnaise effect in the cooling system. I suspect that one of the oil channels is leaking into the cylinders. Anybody have thoughts?

Isn't it still under Warrenty?, Dont you get three Years in Ireland?.
The problem sounds like it needs fixing quick before you lose your whole Engine.

He was told that Alfa want to ship the engine parts to the UK for examination. It's covered under warranty alright.

He was told that this is common on the 147's...!
I suspect that the first owner misunderstood the phrase 'burn-in' for the first 1000 miles...
