    I had a Guilietta previous to my Octavia MK3.

    It went back to the seller two weeks later for the following:

    New clutch
    New flywheel
    Gearbox reconditioned
    New pedals (dangerous in the wet once the rubber bits wear down).
    New battery
    New roof liner

    I got the car back to find the gear selection issues persisted. I spoke to Alfa to find models upto 2011 had a design flaw with the synchromesh for first and second gear.

    They then put in a brand new revised gearbox. The car then felt solid until three weeks later the driver's side seatbelt mechanism started to jam. I had it replaced by the seller under a good will gesture.

    In all honesty it was a nice drive, although I spent nearly three months in courtesy cars .

    Shame that. Touch wood this car has been pretty faultless.

    Other than the battery I changed last month it’s not really needed any repairs and as has been seen I certainly don’t look after it!

    Yep, the speeds were below the speed limit to give us a bit of room to do a few overtaking shots. :)

    Isn't this a bit self incriminating for whoever is driving in the video?

    Seems entirely normal to me:

    Hardcore drifting around a mini roundabout in public - CHECK
    Baseball Cap - CHECK
    Hipster attempted beard - CHECK

    Was a very well controlled little skid to be honest. Wish I could do it like that!

    Not sure confidence is the first word that springs to mind.

    Well you wouldn't do it if you weren't confident, but I take your point. :p
