Hope someone can help. Thanks.
The grease to use is specific to CV joints,and it usually only comes with the kit to replace a complete CV gaiter.You can try your local Motor Factor and see if they'll sell you a pack of grease seperately,or if your struggling,PM me your address and I'll send you one FOC.

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