Yes, I have fallen victim to an over tightened sump nut.

I've totally rounded off the sump nut on the GT, and that was using a proper sump nut key and plenty of leverage.

Anyway, as I plan to render the current nut useless when I remove/destroy it somehow tomorrow (without mangling the thread), does anyone know if the likes of Halfords or ECP stock Alfa compatible replacements?

Both the online shops of Halfords and ECP state that they dont stock Alfa sump nuts, but I would bet that there are compatible sump nuts that suit a variety of manufacturers cars?

Incidentally, my GT has been serviced exclusively by the same Alfa dealership, so I blame them for this! The nut literally feels like its welded on!
