Thanks for the welcome guys.
The 147 was delivered this evening :)
I've only had a quick drive, but already have loads of stuff I need to fix, or at least investigate!
It's got the famed floppy gearstick, various bits of loose/broken trim, a knocking/rumbling from the front at low speed over bumpy ground, and is alarmingly unstable above 60mph!
Ah well, at least I can put the shiny new socket set I got for my birthday last week to some good use!

Jacked up the front end at lunch time and had a poke around.
The bushes in the top front wishbones are clearly knackered, so that's my first job to do!

Well just over 3 months after I bought it my 147 decided to scatter it's engine internals over the A1 last night :cry:

I think my curiosity with Alfa's has been satisfied now, back to dull but reliable far eastern vehicles methinks...

Really sorry to hear that, don't give up hope!
