  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Everyone, After owning a MiTo for the last few years I'm looking to upgrade to a Giulietta. My budget unfortunately isn't fantastic, so I'm looking at an earlier model, probably pre 2013. Are there any specific things I should look out for when I test drive or view any. I've read that the...
  2. Alfa MiTo
    So, I'm looking to lower my 2010 MiTo Cloverleaf 170, and get some more rear negative camber Then I'd get some small spacers just to fill out the look. I've read on more than a few posts that the Eibach springs are great, and I've also read that the DNA Racing camber plates will add just...
  3. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, Hope everyone is doing well. To give you a quick recap of my situation. I have a 2014 Alfa Romeo Mito with a (0.9) TwinAir engine. As of recently, it came to my knowledge that although when I first purchased the car, it passed the mechanics test and everything looked and sounded...
  4. Alfa MiTo
    Hey guys, I'm looking for a bit of advice regarding a MiTo I saw today. I went to view a TB120 today to replace my current car, almost identical minus leather but plus BOOST. Car has been really well looked after, drive great, but has what looks like an unfortunate supermarket car park...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, Brand new to this forum and to owning an Alfa. I have an 09 Brera 2.4 Jtdm 20V 210hp with approx 34,000 miles. Recently it developed a slight whine while driving. I noticed the power steering fluid was low so investigated that. While stationary, and when I turn the wheels to full lock...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    HELLO FORUM, as the title says i just got my first car (alfa romeo 147 1.6 tspark 2005 in a sexy sexy light blue). It has some problems which i wasn't aware of until after the sale (i bought it last saturday). then there are some mods I would like to carry out on it and would like some advice...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, Had 2 previous Alfa’s, now need more doors than a GT & a Brera can provide. Want a Giulietta 1.4 multiair Veloce. Can anyone please tell me when the Multiair unit was updated in early G’s? On a budget so want to protect myself as much as possible from the dreaded fault. (Know it...
  8. Alfa MiTo
    Thinking of getting back on the Alfa train (last had a 147 9 years ago, and a Brera before that), and I've got my eye on a 2011 Mito 1.4 TB MultiAir 135 Sprint 3dr TCT Automatic advertised at a local dealer ( https://www.motors.co.uk/car-53701603/ ) . Due to medical problems I have to have an...
  9. Alfa MiTo
    Hi Everyone, Currently, I am looking to buy an Alfa Giulietta or Mito with a £5k limit (I am a Vauxhall owner and never owned an Alfa Romeo before so i hope this doesn't sound too stupid). I have been looking for about 3 weeks now and have been to see a few different Alfa’s (Yes I am being...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hope it's okay to post this here, as there doesn't seem to be an appropriate heading for this model in the technical advice forum. I'm thinking of buying a 2008 JTS Spider (the 1997 916 finally needs to find an owner that has the skills to look after it better!) from a reputable dealer, but the...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I've got a leak which looks like it's coming from around the camshaft area of the front bank of my GT's V6. Any ideas what it could be and more importantly, how much it's likely to break my bank? There's no "Mayo" residue build up on the oil filler cap which makes me think (hope) it's...
  12. Introduce Yourself
    Hello every one! Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this. I am a car salesman and our garage has recently taken over the Alfa Romeo franchise in our area. I am to be the Alfa Romeo specialist and will be put on courses/launches etc. to improve my knowledge on them but my question is - What...
  13. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello, I've recently run across an '87 Alfetta that appears to be pretty solid and complete (minus a bit of linkage at the Webber's). Any feedback on what area(s) I should look at before I write the check? How difficult will it be to locate parts? Also, I'm 6'2" and around 190 lbs. Will I be...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, A couple of years ago I had an 05 GT 1.9JTD in Rosso red which like a fool (Doh!) I sold (even though it had its issues) and replaced it with a 987 Boxster which was boring and nothing like as nice to own or live with so I sold it quickly. Since then I have been looking for another GT...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 147 Mjet Lusso 16v 05 plate and I love it, best car I've owned. However in the 2 years I've owned it I've spent a small fortune on repairs and breakdowns. The problem I have is the family mechanic is reluctant to do anymore work on it as every time he fixes it he recommends that I sell...
  16. Tuning & Upgrades
    Greetings friends ! Right now i am collecting some parts for my 156 1.8 Twinspark engine. My plan is to build a turbo upon this engine. I already have a turbo and manifold from an alfa 156 jtd 16v. I would like to have (if there is chance) some small advice on downpipe/the rest of the exhaust...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've been looking at dipping my toe into Alfa ownership for a while now and found myself looking at GT 3.2 V6s. There's a few kicking around on ebay and auto trader at the moment, it seems £4k gets you into one that's a bit tired and the top end is around £7k. Many of them seem to have had...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Question about an amp. Not planning on fitting it to the car but just want to have a play, test it if you like before I pass it on. Part of a job lot I've recently bought is an RT202 Amp & KFC2503 speaker, so I'll assume it is set in "sub-woofer" single channel/speaker mode. For the purposes of...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I viewed a 1.9 jtdm GT today, which drove well, no issues I could see with engine and mechanicals, interior was fine, paint in general was ok, with a few scuffs and scratches that could be improved with the polishing mop and made more presentable, but would require bodyshop and paint to be...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello The rear shocks of my 156 1.8 TS (may 1998 . 144cv) are in the end of its life and I´m thinking to replace them. I started to search online and in the midle of everything I found two low cost models that say that they are adjustable... Ridex - 854S1719 Stark - SKSA-0130119 Does anyone...
