  1. Alfa Stelvio
    Taking my Milano Edizione over to France this weekend and been trying to ascertain how the 35w bi-xenons behave. I *think* the answer is that they are 'flat' and don't have any pattern that requires correction when driving on the LHS. Other discussion on the inter webs even suggests the car...
  2. Alfa Giulia
    Taking the QV on a European roadtrip this month, including France. Does it need headlamp converters? Not really an issue at <£5, but I've seen a few comments that Bi-Xenon lights don't need them?? Also....French law needs all sorts of motoring kit (Including the above converters) - also needs...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All Thinking of taking the Spider LE overseas and have a couple of questions... 1) I assume the ground clearance is OK getting on / off ferries ? I have caught the sump guard occasionally on raised ironworks so just want to check if anyone has had any issues. 2) Anyone recommend a boot...

    Next year I retire. We intend to do a good amount of travelling, some in Europe in the spider (camping/hotels) and some in Asia (hotels only) I currently have a cheap mobile for calls & texts and it will (but I have never used it) be able to use for internet, but it is way outdated. Next year, I...

  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone know if the xenon lights on a 156 GTA have an 'adjuster' for driving abroad or do I have to get this done at a garage?

    I think there's been some debate about this recently on AO? I'm abroad at the moment and was very pleased to be told about this: FilmonTV.com. Enjoy! :)
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 156 which I needed some inexpensive small bits. Asked around online shop, the standard answer seems to be "we don't sell them, please get from dealer". Well I'm in Malaysia where the dealer for Alfa decided not to continue business some time ago, so no more dealer. Anyone has any...

    One of my main gripes about being here in the UAE is the truly atrocious and expensive "TV packages" that you can use. Basically the telco here is a monopoly (Etisalat) and they provide "service" which will only be familiar to those who used to deal with "The GPO" back in the 70s for...
  12. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    We have just returned home from a tour of Brittany around the St Malo area returning via Caen after arriving via Cherbourg. We, like many of you, enjoy driving on the French road network as the roads are comparatively traffic free and good condition, sans potholes etc. However, this year and...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello guys, Me and the other half were talking holidays the other day and we both fancy going to Italy in the Summer, and I suggested possibly driving and camping, so we can stay in a few different places and be in control of our own destiny, as it were. Well, I am 21 and frankly have never...

    Did anyone else spot the silver 156, when they were in Macedonia..:thumbs:
  15. General Motoring Discussion
    Hello (again) as you know, if you loiter in the newbie area, I'm new. I bought my first Alfa after not owning a car for around five years as I wanted to go on a European driving holiday. After a little bit of time on here, I settled on a GT, hunted one down and did that thing you should never...

    And no, its not a test by the French to make sure you have the required amount of garlic in you. BBC News - France orders breathalyser for motorists
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all I recently (April) bought a 159 brand new and exported it to Germany 2 weeks later. Since then, the passenger seat has started to come apart (sports cloth) I called Alfa UK who told me to take it to a German dealership, who have agreed that it is a warranty claim and are happy to do...
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello GTV'ers...(and especially Euroboy) Got a dilemma, so I thought I would put it out to fellow AO'ers for your diverse opinions. I am more than likely going to work abroad in Amsterdam and can either sell the GTV (v6) before I go, or take it with me. The GTV is in great condition and I love...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Look, what will happen is that the memsahib & I are taking the 147 abroad. I can't find the area on the headlight glass that needs to be obscured, the glass is plain with no markings, I have looked & there is no change over switch on the lighting units. There is also no information in the...
