Thanks Colin -- looking forward to this! 

The ever thoughtful Matty at Alfa Men graciously lent me a 156 while my Benz was in for service this week.  Went to great effort to run me through Selespeed which I've never driven before.  Won't say it was better than having a clutch pedal, but it was lots of fun...

Attend the Alfamen Technical Night on Friday 17th April, so we can discuss the best type of oil to use in your 147, Colin.

Tip to get there:

Enter the service road right at the service station on the McDonald road intersection with Geelong road.

(My GPS got me lost  :( )

I'll second that...

Another great technical night at Alfamen. Matt's nights are unique because he goes to a lot of trouble to not only explain the technical aspects of our cars from an engineering perspective, but also from a design philosophy.

His gift is that he can turn a relatively dry subject such as oil, or emissions control and miraculously make it interesting.  Let's be honest - this takes a special skill  :D

Overall a fantastic night - there was beer, pizza and great conversation - and I have no doubt everyone learnt something new.

Alfamen technical nights are no doubt one of the best on the calender and I highly recommend putting your names down for next year!

Thanks again to Matt and his staff who all went to enormous trouble putting the night on  8)
