In serious shock over Christmas as I never thought it would be this easy to start...

A year in the garden, from Dec 13th 2011 to Dec 20th 2012, started only once in Feb and the battery was then not disconnected so it it went bad. My brother in law let off the hand break and moved it a couple of feet up the driveway so the wheels wouldnt be one spot for too long. In around Oct one of the front wheels went flat so it wasnt moved at all then.

All I did was take off the flat, pump it and put it back on and replace the battery. Before I started it I switched on the ignition and left it on for about 30 secs to make sure fuel was up to engine and then again for another 30secs to make sure.

Watch - Starting the Alfa after a year - YouTube

I had to make a video of it starting or not because of all the slaggings I was getting off my mates because of buying an Alfa and loving it. They said it would never start!
