  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello guys. Can i trust in a 159 which is “only” around 2900-3000 euro? Will it serve me well in the next few years or is it a bad decision? Do you think i can believe that they only been driven for 200-250 thousands kilometers? If yes, will they be able to run 100-200 thousands kilometers...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi my 156 2.0 to is dead up to 3000 revs. It feels like a car that has turbo lagg in the below 3000 revs. Is this normal for a 156 or is there something I can do? :idea:
  3. Insurance Section
    Hi, I thought some of you might like to see this interesting vid featuring one of the insurers we use to underwrite the club's car insurance scheme - ERS. Gumball 3000 organisers were looking for a specialist insurer to underwrite this year's event - a motor risk that includes Saudi princes...

    Hello, I am new to the alfaowner.com forum and I hope you can help me. I am currently busy with a DIY remapping project. Until now I have learned a lot from reading this forum and other remapping forums. This weekend I successfully disabled EGR, swirl flaps and increased the idle rpm. Now my...

    I own an Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 jtd 10 valve on a 2001 the first problem is that it struggles to start hot and cold. The second problem and the main reason I am making this post is the car gets to about 3000 rpm and it loses all power in any gear and the red engine light comes on the dash like its...
  7. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Well, for some reason I thought this was a bit of a milestone. I don't normally bother with things like that, but as AO has declined over the years it is the sort of thing you tend to notice, as the first 2k went by very quickly. The last 1k has taken some time. A bit of shame what happened to...

Not noticeable when accelerating. Looks like the source of it is the engine or the front part of the exhaust...
