  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just bought another 147, cheap and unseen. Not a bad car. Turns out maybe too good to wreck. Garage had the car left by the customer, so story goes. They don't fix Alfa. They say the car ran but it wouldn't select gear and one of their mechanics started to look at it . So no idea what he has...
  2. Alfa MiTo
    Just an FYI , the wife's Mito on a 15 plate has had a service action notification . Rang Alfa and its a software update to " improve cold starting " so being booked in at local dealer to have it applied . Maybe worth checking if you didn't buy new if Alfa haven't got your details etc .
  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    I'm in my third month of ownership of the 166 2.0 V6 turbo. Major repair item - 2 replacement camshafts, sourced locally second-hand - after the discovery that exhaust lobes on both existing cams were badly worn. Engine now running sweet as a nut (touch the proverbial). One thing that irks me a...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello dear alfa users. I wish to ask for your help about my beloved vehicle. I have an issue for quite some time (because I haven't found a way to fix it yet) and it's about the temperature in the car. It's an Alfa 156 1.9 JTD (8V) 2002. So my problem is as followed: I don't get any reading of...
  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Phase 3 car. Windscreen wipers don't sweep fully, turning back early. About 25% doesn't get swept. Wiper motor or some kind of relay fault? Anyone experienced this or have an idea of how to fix?
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The clutch action on my 916 SPIDER TWIN SPARK is inconsistent sometimes fine other times not quite engaging. Is it just that the system needs bleeding or could it be a (master or slave) cylinder issue ?

    I hope this hasnt been made before, couldnt find it anywhere, Could anyone recommend a good action camera for the car like a go pro? It has to be withing a resonable price as a go pro is far to expensive for an apprentice like me lol
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey all, So I made a post a few weeks ago about having trouble occasionally with gear selection - specifically the forward back motion of the gear selector to go in/out of gear.. Well after a bit of playing about I'm finding that a few swift pumps on the clutch before use will more often...
  9. General Motoring Discussion
    Italian consumer group reproduced the official EU test procedure on two cars, and found that, even in the same "controlled conditions", there's something fishy going on. Golf 1.6 TDI claimed: 3.8 l/100km tested: 5.83 l/100km (+53% greater) FIAT Panda 1.2 petrol...

    Hi Folks Our club have a couple of spare ( :wow: free!) tickets for this Saturday's Classic & Retro Action Day @ Castle Combe if anyone is interested.
  11. Alfa 164 & 166
    Right guys, 4 and a half years of 166 ownership. I've loved every minute of it when it's been on the road, but patience is wearing thin. The story at the mo... So, my Capri's decided to blow a piston ring, &, as a Capri club chairman/Capri enthusiast, I need that fixed, so bottom end rebuild...

    I bought a DAS-6 Pro machine polisher. You should get one too. That is all :D

    Clare bought me a Hero 3 HD silver with in built wifi for Crimbo. Typically, there's no manual in the box but I've downloaded one & it can be controlled via a smart phone. Any tips on usage? Cheers,
