Car trouble

As the previous post already mentioned, a minor setback on the way back… while doing 180 on the autobahn suddenly no more power from the engine and a large amount of smoke coming from the exhaust. Well, you couldn’t actually see through the smoke, so large amount may be understated. Pulled over, and very happy with the subscription to VAB with international support. Got home with a replacement car (Seat Leon) with about 5 hours of delay… but got home!

Thanks to the Alfa Romeo 156 club the car is well on its way to get repaired for a reasonable price, though "repaired" includes a new engine block, as the current one is pretty much toast – one of the 4 cylinders is badly damaged and beyond repair. I’ll be without it (her?) for a few more weeks I fear, but big thanks to my sis for letting me use her Volvo while I’m waiting!!
