147s

  1. Are 147s still worth saving?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I asked myself this question after ploughing through the grass sideways, crossing the gravel trap and bumping the guard rail at Bedford Autodrome on a rainy day recently. :titanic: On the bright side, I managed to find a good headlight on ebay for £15 and changed it myself, but the bonnet and...
  2. Which 147s had a sunroof option?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all. A new boy here .. I wish to replace my faithfull 03 model 147 Lusso, thus I have been surfing the online ads. I haven't seen any Face Lift 147 with a sunroof. Could anybody tell me if sunroofs were an option on any of the Face Lift models? Thanks in advance Peter
  3. Does anyone have some catalog or historical prices of 147s when new?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Interested in seeing how much they used to cost when new. Interested in both pre-facelift and the facelifted models. Going to Germany in a few months, thinking of selling my car, adding some cash and importing something - but in order to know how much the import taxes will cost, I need to know...
  4. [Off-topic] A lot of 2.0 147s are Selespeed. What gives?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Watched a video recently and fell in love with the sound of the 2.0. A friend had the 2.0 TS 145, and it did sound great but I don't recall it sounding this good. Either way, looking through some classifieds and it's very hard to find a manual 2.0 TS for reasonable money. I'm guessing...
  5. School me on 147s

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm more of a e30 bmw guy and i know plenty about them and the kind of nice touches you can add to them without going over board. I know nothing about these 147s other than some of the problems I read about before buying. What kind of styling options are there, like subtle little touches...
  6. Question about 147s and 1.9 Jtd engines

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi A friend of mine has decided to return to the Alfa fold and is currently looking for a 1.9 jtd engined Alfa - preferably a 147 but may also go for a 156. Price c 5500, so probably a 2006/2007 car? I'm not familiar with the jtd engines, my own experience only being with the petrol engined...

  9. Are heated seat switches the same in GTs and 147s?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, the heated seat switches have died on my GT (suprise suprise - seams quite common!). I've seen someone selling some switches from a 147 they are breaking. Does anyone know if these are the same switches and will work in the GT? Thanks!

  11. do all 147s have a pollen filter?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hi, was just wondering whether all 147's have pollen filters as standard? And where would i check to see if mine needs replacing?
  12. Hey Aussies, Oil filter alternative for 147s

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After standing in Supercheap auto for an hour, opening boxes and measuring with a vernier, I have found a replacement for the filter on the 147. Probably will do other models like the 156 as well. RYCO Z543. If you already know this, ignore me:)
  13. Anyone got any decent splitters for 147s..?

    Motoring Images
    just looking for images really? i'm not provoking chavtastic thoughts from the witty amongst you, but i'm just wondering if anyone has seen something cool on a 147? adaptations of an upside down seat leon cupra are probable .. and 18 quids aren't much to throw away if it looks a bit rubbish ...
  14. Why are 147s cheap? Are they no good?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, ive been looking to buy a new car and have seen quite a few 147s for around £2000 with about 50-60,000 on the clock, compared with other cars of the same price they seem fantastic value. I am new to alfa romeos and would like to know if buying one is a good idea or do they regularly break...

  17. 147s pre 06

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello All, A girlfriend of mine wants to buy a 147 Lusso. She's been told to go post 06 because they were overhauled in 05 to "rectify the electronic problems".......:confused: is this correct? Just sounded like another urban tale to me - can anyone shed some light? Thanks
  18. Identifying 147s

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hey all, I'm just wondering and I can't seem to find anything about it, but is there any way of telling the difference between the 105bhp and 120 bhp 1.6 147? Without the obvious of driving it :P Ta, Matt
  19. I feel lost in a sea of 147s

    General Alfa Discussion
    I feel somewhat lost in a sea of 147s at the moment, new as I am, I feel a strange need to show people I care about the Alfa, not just a car that goes from A to B. I like the car as it is, no mods, no stickers or badges, no whale tail or flaming exhaust... Just a moan, I will get used to it...
  20. Bloody 147s are EVERYWHERE

    General Alfa Discussion
    On my trip into work this morning I saw 5 of the buggers, what's all that about? I normally only see one, mine. :cry: I'm losing my individuality
