Can't shake this insane 147 lust I have right now, so I will take a random to get things moving, plus I am now up a virtual ticket since Robs Merc sold.
Last Alfa (and only Alfa) I bought up north was shagged, mind you.
This one does has some redeeming features, the washer jets are a personal favourite, pulling back for the screen gives you 3 out of 4 jets on the windscreen, the 4th jet is reserved and only activated at the same time as you do the rear wash, pretty sure that's how Alfa designed it to work, honest.
It's coming across as shagged but I do trust it. I took the wife, 2 sprogs and the dog to Llandudno in it for a weekend. She'd have clubbed me to death with the dog if it blew up so that's some measure of belief in it for you.
