    Hi! Anyone knows if it is possible to retrofit a USB port below climate controls like newer Giulias have it? I only have 1 USB port under the arm rest with mp3 USB stick plugged in and sometimes i need to charge phone. I guess that there should be some free connectors somewhere inside, so i...

  5. Additional gauges?

    Alfa Giulietta
    As I'm going to be running increased boost on my G I would like to have a proper boost gauge. Other gauges that might be useful would be oil temp/pressure and perhaps exhaust temperature or afr. What I really worry about is how to integrate this into the car without destroying the interior...
  6. Additional key/remote

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi I've recently bought a 916 Spider but it only came with the red key and a separate push-button remote lock which is badly worn. Do I need to go to an Alfa main dealer to have a second key/remote coded or can any garage obtain it for me? Thanks
  7. GT window not working? Check the additional fuses.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    If you have zero function of an electric window when everything else looks good, check the fuses F64 and F65 located in the additional fusebox B98. You'll find this by contorting yourself in the driver's footwell and looking up behind the dashboard fusebox partially obscured by carpet and the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 jdtm has just started making (what i can only describe as..) an additional engine noise when idling. It is quite noticeable in the cabin, but goes as you move up to 2nd/3rd gear and when the revs climb. It also only appears once the engine is warmed up Has anyone had a similar problem...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Saw an ad last night that AR are doing an additional £500 deposit contribution this week only on the Giulietta. I literally paid my holding deposit on Friday so I'm now absolutely furious. Do you think I have any comeback at the dealership? I paid £250 to hold the car. So even if I cancelled...
