Well Happy Anyone From Sutton In Ashfield Area?

Just wondering if there is anyone else around the sutton in ashfield area with a GTV or any other alfa?
Just bought my 1st alfa and looking to get together with other alfa lovers.

Re: Anyone From Sutton In Ashfield Area?

Hey Dave and welcome - also good choice of Alfa :P

I was up that way for some servicing recently. AlfaTecnico is off the A38 - Lewis is a top man. We are going to have to sort out some meets in the not too distant, we were quite good in the area last summer but been a bit poor so far this year. You should deffo see if you can get ot AutoItalia near Loughborough -

Re: Anyone From Sutton In Ashfield Area?

Hi bigmac,i know about lewis and alfatecnico (he really knows his stuff). My mates got a 156 veloce selespeed and he takes his there. He was keeping his eyes out for a gtv for me until i saw this one. I just work up the road from there and i live in sutton, so it is conveniant. Have you had many problems with your gtv? It's my 1st so i dont know what to expect.

Re: Anyone From Sutton In Ashfield Area?

I've not had any actual problems - at least nothing not relatively easily sorted. The worst problem I did have was that I could no longer select 4th gear after two months of ownership. There is a fix on here somewhere where you remove the gearbox end casing, clear of swarf and refit. After doing this and a drain and fill with new oil we were away and the gearbox is much better all around.

Randomly the engine oil filler cap went on a trip without letting me know so I lost a lot of oil (approx 1 litre) in the engine bay. Fortunately I checked the oil before the next trip so noticed it immediately. New cap and further oil and we are OK. I've spent a fortune on cambelt change and powerflexing but otherwise it has all been plain sailing so far and I love her to bits

Re: Anyone From Sutton In Ashfield Area?

The GTV's are a sound car all round. For some reason, the floor pans dont rust as much as the 145's or 6's, yet they are the same.

The only thing you really should be concered about, it the oil level and make sure that the cambelts are up to date and changed at the correct times.

156 JTS SW

I live that way, got a 156 JTS SW, Lewis has just put a new radiator in for me, seems like a nice chap, and more importantly need the change in record time so I could take the car to Wales for the weekend

ALFA 145

Hi, I was at Eastwood, Nottingham but am in the process of moving into my girlfriends house in Keyworth.
I have a Zoe Yellow 145 but used to have a Spider Covertable, excellent car!



if anyone is interested I have a front bumper to get rid of from my Spider that I never got fitted as it got written-off, I also have the original radio but would need to find that out if anyone is interested!
