Well I'm glad you cleared that up, but I still think you should get it checked over as mine is quite a serious case lol

Sounds blo*dy awful. I admire how calm youre being. No use giving yourself a corronary over a car i know, but i'd still have a try!

Im not one to money grab, but seen as everyone else does why not ring Fiat & ask for a free service or two (assuming you havn't already got Feel3). Might make them remind Italy to build an engine properly in future

All I can do is wait until the parts arrive to fix it, but it could go BANG at any moment. If it does then I'll have to have a whole new engine which could take like a month to be fixed .... I'll demand alot if that happens

I'm not too bothered really lol

Cannot be helped, but they could have made it correct in the first place

Re: OH NO! Engine management light (and interior trim issues)

Alfa seems OK now, no probs since the EBOD lit up briefly than disappeared.
I'm guessing the Alfa was just sulking after been left out in the wind and rain all night.

Can't wait to reach a 1000 miles!

Re: OH NO! Engine management light (and interior trim issues)

The cubby hole cover is fitted at PDI after the car has been on examiner, Slightly weak plastic fins with pins on it to locate into dash panel with spring attached , Misfire on MultiAir may be due to oil leakage into spark plug tubes due to UPPER head gasket leakage , Evo turbo engines have power limiter in built that has to be reset at pdi ( not sure about specific criteria of limiter )

They are replacing the head gasket so I guess your right
