With this month's edition of the magazine, Top Gear have added a Giulia to their long term fleet, but this time around have gone for the 'everyman' version (their words !) - ie a Super 2.0 in MC Blue.
Although they have then specc'ed it up to just short of £40K with :

I was bored during Sunday afternoon so I carried out a small modification - installed sidelights in front indicators on order to honour the style of 70s Alfas..what do you think of this ? No external modifications were done , when switched off it looks exactly as it did before:

Much work done in the time I've owned it, including:

When I bought my first Alfa Romeo, after 5 years wait, one thing became apparent immediately: aside from being exhilarated because I was finally driving my 147, I couldn't believe how much value to the brand was added by other Alfa Romeo owners and drivers respecting each other on...
as the title suggests, perhaps we may be able to persuade or mention a feature we would like to see added to the Infotainment at least, or an accessory you may want to buy,

Hiya, first Alfa for me, it’s a £100 X plate 156 2.0 TSpark, metallic blue with a blue leather interior.
It joins an MGF, an X1/9 and a ’59 Ford Galaxie in the fleet (oh to have all four on the road and fully functioning…). It has just dawned on me that this 156 is my newest car!
Hope to one...

For a while I've been thinking that I wasn't happy not having a spare tyre on the GT and relying Holts tyreweld so I decided to do a write up on this topic to help other GT owners.
A few weeks ago I bought myself a 156 space saver tyre with tool kit but I hit a stumbling block as the threaded...
I have had my 156 2.5l a few weeks and the oil was fine when I got it. Looking at it today the oil was only just above the min line so I added 0.75l of 10W-40, went to start the car and the engine just turns over but won't start.
Is there something I've done wrong, or can I work out why it...
