    That hasn't changed, but I doubt I will have the funds for an HF. I have been discussing this one with the owner but he has gone quiet over the last few days HSCC Fulvia

    They are nice looking Andy and I have heard good things about them. I still think they have been stingy on the BHP. Only 340 when even the new Merc A Class AMG is now over 400. Those are looking tempting as a fun daily with 4 reasonable seats. Still working on the Wife who I know likes the Cayman..

    Goes in for a service today! Used the wife's Audi A1 this morning and it was just the same on mpg and it's not as comfortable. I can't seem to find a decent position where as the golf is like being in dads old comfy arm chair.

    The alfa 166 was in for MOT yesterday. Passed with flying colours. Bangernomics at its best.

    Few little faults.
    OSR Caliper seized - £135 fitted - I dont think so..
    New Ignition Switch - £101 - doesn't turn off when turn key off - Engine runs until pull key out - If is not an MOT fail then I will leave it.
    Fault with EGR system - Fuel consumption seems okay at 38ish mpg so I wont be getting that looked at - Not when I've seen the exorbitant amounts on the internet..

    So as bangernomics go - not bad at all for a 12yr old car...

    No problems John - I will have a look at the caliper, can get a new one for £35,will see if I can free it first tho, ignition I am not bothered about, it wont fail MOT for it,
    Rest all good, I only want 2 years out of it, done 3000 miles all ready and its like a comfy arm chair to drive. Get it in 6th and just cruise at 70 for my 70 mile round trip.
    I'm happy with it so no worries, 12 year old and a brake caliper I can sort, VASTECH do give them a proper going over.
