    That is bad luck! I had a 145 1.8ts which went on and on forever with no problems a 146 Ti which got murdered by a bloody taxi driver rear ending her and another 146 Ti which had critical engine failure at high speed on the motorway......so 2 out of 3 of my Alfa's were actually reliable and good fun to drive, could certainly see myself driving Alfa Romeo again in the future. Anyway, hope you have better luck with the Audi

    Fran: The amount of "I told you so's" i got from friends was huge! haha Im from cardiff too! .

    Mrmok: Yea They're lovely cars, mine was the veloce in unoxidised (!) red, with gunmetal teledial wheels (which i had also spent days refurbishing prior to doing the cambelt! lol). I gave the alfa to my brother, who fitted a recon engine and it seems to be running fine now... touch wood! Great cars to drive though, absolutely loved the handling. would love a 3.0 GTV if i could afford the petrol!

    Damo: Will try and take some pictures when it stops raining! lol
