I'm not sure I should be saying this,but it has cost me very little so far......and if that isn't tempting fate I don't know what is!.

I can't think of anything that has cost me money that wasn't a wear and tear item.I bought the car in March this year(I think) for 1300,replaced the front tyres as the car had remoulds fitted to it(205/55VR16 Avon Milleniums,25 each trade),and replaced the front discs and pads as the previous owner had put new pads on it but the discs were warped(around 100 trade).Apart from that it's had the odd bulb,an oil and filter change,pollen filter change,a bolt in the seat base replaced,and one pencil coil and a set of plugs.I also had the aircon professionally re-gassed for 25.

I don't think that thats bad for a car thats done 130k.:.It's due a cambelt next year,and the exhaust is getting a bit weak in a few places,and the radiator has a tiny weap from it which is bound to get worse,but all in all I am very,very pleased with it.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
