  1. Alfa love affair

    General Alfa Discussion
    Since buying my first Alfa a "Sud" to my last a 2011 Giulietta, with 145, 156, 159 and Gt inbetween the love affair is about to end. Both the Guilia and Stelvio amazing cars, but too pricey for what they are. The Giulietta getting long in the tooth despite the face lift, the Mito too small for...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Nice article in our local magazine but I suspect their autocorrect didn't like the spelling of Alfa..... An Italian Affair with Ashley Lovering - The Bay Magazine Swansea Cheers, Simon
  3. The love affair must end.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got my 01 plate 156 selespeed at back end of 2006 with 19K miles on clock from a retiree. Silver with black leather although my ideal would have been red leather - never got around to update interior though. Loved every single day of having it, looking at it, driving it and just sitting quietly...
  4. Love Affair

    Introduce Yourself
    I didn't think I'd be able to love a car as much as I loved my red Mk2 Golf Gti. But then I sold it and bought a red 147 Q2 Sport.
  5. The love affair is over...

    General Alfa Discussion
    … brought to a cruel end by an irresponsible 15-year-old lad who decided to get behind the wheel of his sister’s Ford, slammed it in reverse and ploughed into my beloved Alfa 156, which concertinaed against two other cars. It’s a write off, squashed from both ends. To make matters worse, the...
  6. The start of the love affair?

    Introduce Yourself
    So, It's Valentine's Day and I picked up my first ever Alfa Romeo today, a 2011 Giulietta 2.0JTD Veloce with 13k on the clock. It's been a horrible wet day but the car performed faultlessly on the 50mile drive back from the dealer and I think I'm going to enjoy it a lot when/if it stops raining...
  7. Help please, I'm thinking of having an affair

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've had a few classic cars over the years but for the last 10, since I bought my first GTV, it's only been Alfa's. Lately though I've been looking at other makes and I'm worried that I might stray! Is this okay, how many run other makes of cars (classics, not just the family estate)...

  9. Brera Love/Hate Affair

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Its fair to say that my experience of ownership with my Brera has not been as expected, after the initial new car elation wore off I found myself getting more and more dissapointed and frustrated with the car. Performance, economy and one or two niggles like the hesitation didn't help but...
  10. The Alfa love affair is over.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I bought an Alfa GT October 2009 and couldnt have been happier ;)as ive always wanted one . But it soon lived up to the Alfa reputation , it had a fuel leak and the parking sensor broke within a week . Then the door handle broke off and it took 10 weeks to get the part!! At its first MOT i...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi all, I'm sorry to say this but finally my love affair has come to an end and I'm no longer an Alfa owner. Yeap the Spider has gone. Well those of you that know me will know it hasn't been an easy relationship, she was tempermental from the start. Unfortunately my dealership and ARUK got...

  13. End of a love affair

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Sad day tomorrow - the Brera is being exchanged for a Jaguar XF:cry: She has been brilliant and I have loved every minute of the 2 years I have owned her. But I only ever keep cars for 2 years and sadly there is not another Alfa that I could love as much. I tried very hard to want the Giulietta...
  14. Think the love affair may be coming to an end.....

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just when i thought i was getting there now with the 147 turbo, yesterday she goes and has the biggest tantrum yet, coming home up the m1, had to emergency stop because some plank in his german s**t box had decided to stop on the start of the ramp of J15, everything seems ok till I get to a stop...
  15. Is my love affair with Alfa on the rocks?

    Alfa GTA
    I drive a 147 GTA, 6 years old. I have had it from new and serviced it regularly. I have had the corse coilovers from Autodelta, new rims and a number of other improvements since the warranty expired but nothing electrical. I recently had to replace the engine guard and when I completed the...
  16. Dead GT JTD - Is this the end of the affair?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Saturday morning and I started the car, drove it to the end of the road and "stalled" it going over a speed bump. Tried to start it and nothing doing. Engine turns over, ignition works but the engine won't catch. No warning lights at all. Left it for a while and came back to it to try again...
  17. Not so secret affair with a 145

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Im borrowing a 2.0 TS 145 whilst my GTV V6 gets over its latest knicker twist and I must say, im falling in love with it for all the wrong reasons. It wobbles like jelly round the bends. Seats are so high from the pedals I feel like im driving a bus. Steering wheel feel is slow but SUPER...
  18. My love affair with the alfa!

  20. My love affair with my GT JTD is!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ive had my 04 GT JTD (60K) for almost 6 months now and ive just about had enough, after one episode of MCSF failure and one replacement fuel injector id hoped that was a one off. Its just happened again to me now and i dont think ill ever trust the car again. Its a real shame as i really enjoy...
