  1. Classic & Sports Cars appreciating classics

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Two beautifully shot videos of the Alfa Spider. The Alfa Romeo Spider is still a bargain. Watch these two videos and you have to wonder why these cars are not in the same price league as classic Porsches and Mercedes.
  2. 147 Strange Battery Drain Problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Try this. I had a similar problem and this is how I fixed it. I had purchased a used car and the battery would drain if the car was left sitting for more than 3 days. I purchased a new battery but it made no difference ... the problem persisted. When purchasing my third new battery in Halfords...

    Are you sure of that?
  4. Alfa 6C on its way?

    General Alfa Discussion
    According to the article Alfa have 11 new models in the pipeline and want to go 'toe to toe' with the Germans. Mercedes have lost the plot with number of new models. The styling of some new models in the Mercedes catalogue could be described as bordering on tacky...and they will only get worse...
  5. Hello everyone

    General Alfa Discussion
    If you have questions about the reliability of Alfa Romeos then it is probably due to the rust problem that caused Alfasuds to crumble and the reputation of Alfa Romeo in the 1970's became tarnished as a result. Alfa Romeos no longer have a reputation for rust. Do they last a long time? Yes, if...

    All brands have lousy dealers and good dealers including BMW.
  8. S4 leaky hard-top

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    This site sells hard top parts.... Del priore They list the rubber seals 'right side gasket' for the hard top for 99 euros (Part No 18) but they do not have them in stock at present! They do have Part No 6 which is called 'the fixation frame for the side gasket' for 49 euros. I am guessing...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    What colour ? If you are considering replacing your S4 mirror units ....... what colour are they?
  13. This price seems somewhat inflated

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Expensive or Not? Apart from the door mirrors the car looks great but it does seem very expensive. Strange why he did not put chrome mirrors on the car. The engine has the 'concours' look. How many hours did it take to get the engine that clean? If you search New & Used Cars ? Search New & Used...
  14. Spider S4 Replacement Door Mirror

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    S4 Door Mirror I have not been able to find a site which sells the replacement mirror glass for the Spider S4 door mirror. The replacement glass mirror would just stick on over the old mirror and they usually cost around the 20 quid mark for most cars. It is possible to buy the complete door...
  15. Spider Ride Comfort

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Rear Shocks and Springs on S4 I just had rear shocks and rear springs replaced on the S4. This has improved handling and ride and got rid of the squeaking noises from the rear suspension. The Spider now sits level at the back. Ride comfort has also improved. I used standard oil shocks.
