Idea My 1st Alfa

Hi everyone,

just new to this and Alfa ownership

Am looking for info on the best place to get parts ect as I bought a GTV for 3k and so far have spent around £1800 on finding the eng management faults.

Still have the clutch to replace as the release barring is loud, the timing belt and belt sensor also need replaced as part of the fault finding on the eng management fault.

I done the brakes this week for a total of £180 disks and pads all round and found that they were very easy to do and in some what the same layout as my Audi S4.

I am looking for:
Silver Boot Spoiler
Tele Dial alloys 17" to replace my 16" Tierdrop ones (anyone know if I need to remove the plastics from inside the wheel arch to do this or is it a strait change?

Also has anyone had any issues with fuses melting? I am thinking this is my fault getting into the car with snow on my shoes and hitting the fuse box?

Thanks in advance for all your help, I have owned Audi's all my days and really wanted a sexy Alfa so went for the GTV 2.0 T-Spark 2002 reg with 70K miles on it.


Can't beat a sexy Alfa.
