Time for the alfa to go after 7 years of my company, 103k, main reason is I'm fed up of changing gear.

I fancy another camper and have the BMW so decided to go bargain basement on this.

Popped up on Autotrader with no pictures, these in automatic guise seem quite rare so I popped down last Sunday, bartered some money off and bought it.







Plans are to change the gearbox oil, fix the two bits of interior broken plastic, change the stereo and drive around in a heated seat automatic 40mpg vehicle of wonder.

FSH - cambelt been done twice, last time was last year!

No plans to do either. Wheels have decent matching pair tyres on. No need for a roof rack. Towbar on the other hand....

I'm 27 not 17. I found a bluetooth stereo I think I robbed from an ex girlfriend in my parents garage and won a steering wheel adapter on eBay for 99p, that's going in this weekend!

Look like blanks where the heated seat switches normally are?
