    Hi, I have 2004 156 facelift I’m changing the interior on. From grey alcantara to beige leather. The grey alcantara set has a grey dashboard, so I’ll need to change the dashboard face as well since the plastics on the beige leather set are black. Does anyone here have any experience or useful...

    Hi! I only had two first electric windows from the factory. There were 4 new doors on the car due to rust (they are all electric), so the cable whip in the doors also came with them. Since it didn’t work by default, it was resolved that both work from their own switch on their door, but they...

    Ok, so I decided to supercharge my 156 CF3 1.8ts. The CF1 manifold, intercooler, pipes, bigger injectors, exhaust etc and the supercharger all plumbed in and working. Now we come to controlling the thing? Have any of you had experience with either stretching the existing Bosch ECU or using stand...

    Hello guys, I have an Alfa 156 FL SW. A few months back my central locking stopped working. So at first the signal decreased, so I had to unlock from closer distances. One day it stopped working at all. No locking/unlocking and no boot opening. I have tried to replace battery of the key...

    Hi all I'm desperately searching for a crankshaft pulley for my 156 2.5 V6 SW. Just spent a fortune on a new belt and water pump and service, and my mechanic has warned that the crankshaft pulley is not looking good. I've seen similar posts on the forum of people looking for this Unicorn? Why...

    After taking the GTA out for it's weekly run, to stop everything seizing up, I noticed some condensation in the speedo and rev dials (more so in the rev counter). Not much, but it isn't something I recall seeing before. In fairness it was as wet a day as we've had recently, but, the carpets are...

    Good Morning, Its been a while as I've been through some rought time and had stopped writing here. I have a 2005 Alfa 156 2.0 JTS and after replacing the thermostat as it was always too cool i started getting misfires around the time it starts to warm up. If I rev the engine sometimes it clears...

    Hi All, The auto gearbox warning light illuminated started flashing along with a solid check engine light. I tried an ECU reset but instead of fixing it the HVAC now has a mind of its own. All suggestions gratefully received!

    Calling all people with those wonderful restoration wizardry skills... I've bought a pair of used GTA xenon headlight units. One is a bit scabby as you can see in the images but they were cheap and will serve as a good source of spares. The lenses I'm comfortable with as I know they can come off...

    Hi I was searching the fuel consumption between the Busso 2.5 24v and the 3.0 12v( the QV us-spec, the sport version) and it seems that the 3.0 has better economy. Is this real or the economy is more or less the same. Thanks

    Calling all pre-facelift 156 owners with Xenon lights, are the headlight units specific for LHD and RHD cars? ePer suggests so but I'm curious to know the difference, are the igniters angled differently or something to give the correct beam pattern or is beam pattern etc controlled entirely by...

    Hi guys, just looking for some advice. I’m currently running a 156 that I have fully stripped out and have done a couple of modifications to. It’s a 1.8TS. I’m currently running 17” wheels with semi slick Toyo Proxes but I think the car would benefit in many ways from a smaller wheel. The 17s...
