I've nearly finished making this for the rear cup holder. It started life as some aluminium guttering brackets which I melted down and then recast as this cap. It's sitting on a small 3D printed insertthat helps to keep it in place in the cup holder. The cap still needs a bit more sanding and then will be finished off with a clear lacquer spray. I'm doing something a little different for the forward cup holder - I'm just waiting for the 3D printer to finish the last bit. (I don't use the holders for drinks - mostly loose change.)

Someone asked me if it was the Alfa 1C today whilst sat at the lights, I said “it’s the 4C as in 4cylinders, wouldn’t sound like this with 1cylinder“ as I put my foot down and did a huge fart Into second.

You can get lucky. Sometimes you get charged, sometimes you don’t. It seems to be a lottery. Maybe we have an Alfista working in the Tax office?
Let us know how the Federals go.

I wouldn't sweat the valve caps, but I hear you. That is considered great service based on some of the other experiences. I wish you saw the underneath of the front bumper of my S Class when the tire shop installed the new wheels and tires. White mind you. This was three weeks ago. I can't believe they can do what they did to that car and think that I wouldn't notice. I'm having it all redone now. And this shop has been doing work for me for years. I was so sad over it. I was in my garage and just happened to look at the front of the sedan, and thought "you have got to be kidding me!"

Now, granted, this is a daily driver, but no way am I not fixing it. But for a car that I considered special? What a heartbreak.
