It's a fruitless endeavor Del, their gonna get your stuff no matter what you do. I bought an Echo so we could make video calls with our 96 year old mom and it only took about a minute for it to get it's claws in me. Can't even take it back for a refund since it now knows more about me that even my own Mother (ha, ha)...Yup, we paid cash for the car, and will not access the internet by hooking up a phone, etc, while in the car...
I've been absent for awhile but still have a pulse. Blackie is currently a daily driver but having trouble with the right front caliper dragging. Last outing it even set off the brake temp warning light - probably the only one I have never seen in all my 164 days
If you guys get tired of wrenching on your Alfa buy a 35 year old Ferrari, that'll keep you busy!
