    Hi I've had a good scan through the forum but can't find a thread on the problem I'm currently experiencing with my 2008 159SW - apologies if I've missed it... two weeks ago, with no warning, the engine cut out at a junction after driving for about 2 minutes. Odd... I restarted, and carried on...

    Hi guys I am thinking of buying a 3.2 sw what are the things to look out for, it has lowish Kms and will come with 12 months warranty..Iam not new to Alfa ownership as I have a 1.9 GT which I bought new 11 yes ago and apart from consumables has caused no concerns so hopefully the 3.2 will be the...

    Any tips? Circled in red look like screw covers, but I can't get them out. Circled in blue look like tabs, but there must be more to it than that. Thanks, Rob

    Hi all! I'm a fresh 159sw 2.0 JTDm owner. Currently looking for summer tires but I'm confused with the large options available. The current size is one of the recommended in the owner's book - 225/50R17. Since it is not the lightest car in the world, I'm again following the instructions in...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, Recently, I've been reading about the 159 (common issues, extras, etc.). IMHO, it is the best looking in its class, but reliability is a bit of concern to me. I have a Honda Accord Tourer 2.4 petrol, which as with most Hondas is boringly reliable. It's been a bit modified (remapped...

    Evening all, As per the title I'm interested in which people would prefer to own, but more so get the views from those who have owned both. Currently I own a 2014 Giulietta Exclusive spec with the 2.0 150bhp diesel engine. I have owned this from new. It is my 2nd Giulietta and I'm very fond of...

    I've read many threads where the question has been asked about a bike rack for the 159SW. In most of these threads the topic deviates into suggestions of a roof rack based solution or tow bar solution and never really conclude on any solid rear fitting bike rack recommendations. I'm aware of the...

    The rear wiper has stopped half way through the wipe. The half wipe it managed was slow before it stopped so I couldn't see it being the fuse ( to be on the safe side I checked the fuse and all seems ok.) The washer still works but sadly the wiper doesn't move. I'm assuming its the motor and...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone, I was just out doing a couple things and came across a wheel and tire place in town with some wheels in the window which caught my eye..... After a long chat and "test fit" we established that Alfas are hard to find aftermarket alloys for due to odd stud pattern and offset...

    With my sister in law due to have a baby quite soon, yesterday I helped her collect some baby gear (pram, car seats etc)..... The car seat she got is an isofix seat but I couldn't locate the anchor points and I felt like a real *** in front of her as I had been going on about how great it is and...

    Hi All The red plastic lens cover on my 159 SW tailgate ( the internal light which shows a red warning light at the back when raised) is cracked . Does anyone know if this replaceable or does it need a whole unit? Also is this an expensive item or best to got to a breakers? TIA :blabla:

    I have to get four large cases in my 159SW boot on tuesday - the question is is it possible?
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, For about 3 months now, I have experienced an intermittent judder. I have freewheeled and it does not change. The steering wheel shudders a fraction but not as much as I would expect if it was something wrong with the front. It has only happened on probably 10 occasions and it seems...
  15. General Alfa Discussion
    After nearly 3 and a half years of ownership, I had recently been considering changing for something newer. It was only after talking to someone on my course that I realised that I might still be in love with it. He was very complimentary on it's looks and went on to question me on it's...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Evening All, My 159SW is suffering from a flickering/intermittent 3rd brake light problem. Have had a good hunt round the forums and t'internet, seems like this has happened to a few other folks so please may I ask for some help fault tracing? How does the rear spoiler come off? Where do I look...

    If anyone here goes to see the car above then feel free to PM me; I flogged it to them this morning. It's a 2010 Ti model that's done 47.5k. Cheers, Hedge

    5 months ago I changed my 17 year old 540 touring for a late, 2010, low mileage 159 SW 1750 Ti. I am very pleased with the Alfa, however I do miss the sunroof that the BMW had. Does anyone know if it is possible to fit an original equipment sunroof to the SW.
