  1. Tractive adaptive dampers on 4C

    4C & 4C Spider
    Apologies to those who’ve read my post on the 4C forum, but thought it might be interesting to those here who might have missed it. Since buying my 4C three years ago I’ve been critical of its harsh, uncompromising ride and dangerous tram-lining. I’ve always believed that these characteristics...
  2. Adaptive lights error

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, I’ve just bought giulietta qv and I’ve noticed error that keeps coming up every time I’ve start engine. It says adaptive lights failure check handbook. My only guess is that beams are not following the steering wheel. But when I start engine I see that beams are going up and down before...
  3. QV Adaptive Cruise Control.

    Alfa Giulia
    Have read a few posts that it’s possible to activate the Adaptive Cruise control on cars that don’t have it as std as all the hardware is already installed. From what I can gather all I need to add is steering wheel button and enable ACC with MES. Has anyone done this ? Thinking of giving it...
  4. Adaptive Cruise control ACC installation

    Alfa Stelvio
    A little guide of how to install it: DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. Well first you need the steering wheel buttons with ACC button EPER part number is: 156130459 also you need to have the front radar and camera, the procedure is the same for the Giulia :-) 0. If you don't want to remove the...
  5. Removing Adaptive Cruise Control

    Alfa Giulia
    I dislike the adaptive cruise control and wonder if other people feel the same. My dislikes: When cruising on the motorway the range is too long even when set to " 1 bar" meaning that the car slows down causing me to have to accelerate before I pull out into the overtaking lane. If I pull...
  6. Adaptive cruise not turning off or car not slowing down

    Alfa Stelvio
    Just curious if anybody else has this issue. The day I bought my car I was driving on the freeway with cars stopping in front of me. I was going about 75 when my car was still speeding up. I brakes and the car wanted to keep accelerating. I fought it for about 15-20 seconds as the cruise would...
  7. Service Adaptive Headlamp System

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi guys, A few weeks ago, my 2017 Giulia Super started with a yellow warning saying "Service Adaptive Headlamp System". I have the AFS option, and noticed it stopped working around that same time. Any of you know what it means? Dealer is baffled and cannot look at it for another 3 weeks. My...
  8. Adaptive cruise control ACC retrofit

    Alfa Giulia
    Any know if the ACC can be retrofit and anyone in NW that can do it ?
  9. Thoughts on Adaptive Cruise Control?

    Alfa Giulia
    How do owners feel about the adaptive cruise control? Here in Denmark ACC is an option (>£2k), and I haven't had a chance to drive a Giulia that had it. I've tried it in several other brands, and have been both impressed and annoyed, depending on the circumstances. How well does the one in the...
  10. Enabling Adaptive Cruise Control

    Alfa Giulia
    I've had a thought about the ACC. Given that the Giulia has radar and a camera to allow the FCW system to work out there's something in front of it and brake if we don't and standard cruise control actually brakes to keep the car at the selected speed if it's rolling downhill (great for the...
  11. Xenon Adaptive Option

    Alfa Giulia
    hi guys, playing with the configurator here... does anyone knows if the Xenon adaptive (not the 25w ones) work the same was as these on the link? thanks
  12. New owner - Aux input, start/stop and adaptive lights unavailable.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, Picked up my 2011 1.4T Veloce Giulietta earlier today, 44800 miles. Absolutely loving it so far but it does have some issues. I get some errors saying that the start/stop and adaptive lights are unavailable. after doing some research it looks as if an iffy battery could be a potential...
