Was giving my new baby a wash/polish/wax today.

After standing back & admiring my handy work I got cleaned up ready for a drive.

Turn key....nothing

Try again all is dead :wow::mad:

Panic begins to set in.Are those Alfa stories true?............


Turns out a battery connection had come loose :lol:

Peace & harmony returns :inlove:

Phew - we all have those moments of panic.

Glad it was so simple.
Cheers Paul.

It certainly raised my heart rate for a while :lol:

On the plus side my bonnet open warning light has now fixed itself :)

Mine must like water

Now that would of had my BP going up :)

The 1st week of my 1st Alfa, GTV, was a nightmare, every noise/rattle/grumble had me panicking, it was also slow/rubbish/handled badly,,,,,,,,then i realised i was no longer in my insane yet civilised scooby, adjusted my driving and hit the engines sweet spot going for a gap in traffic, bloody awesome little car........you can have the remains of my 1st Alfa love for 75 quid.......:thumbs:
