  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Apologies if this is common knowledge, or a regular post! I'm going to be buying a Giulietta 1.4 TB in the the very near future, and I'm not sure if I'd be better off with an older car (11 plate) with lower mileage (32k), or a newer car (65 plate) with higher mileage (63k)? I'm mainly looking...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Today I found front and rear Boge struts (D3218F) for my 147 (with eibach springs). They cost 208 euros and I think it is a bargain (140 euros on ebay for each rear). I was going for the rear, because I read that they are good (I think by Fruity), but the price is for all of them, and they don't...
  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    Ok Ok Years ago the AGM etc batteries were prohibitive in terms of cost SO this didnae enter the equation. I ken ,I think, that ewe cannae stick an auld (or even brand noo) Lead acid accumulator (Ord Battery) . I remember back to an MOT IIRC wan of Pomeos first when the tester stuck two...
  4. Alfa 164 & 166
    The timing belt on my 166 is coming up for seven years old but has only done 35k miles in that time. What are peoples thoughts/experience on age as a reason to change it over miles? My understanding of rubber would say that temperature and stress/relax cycles would be the primary cause of...

    With the new line up coming of the Guilia, Stelvio and of course the already acclaimed 4c, it would be nice to see a new age 105. Maybe something like the below.
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I spent a few hours yesterday changing the air filter on my 156. Should be easy but the bolts were so corroded the heads crumbled at the mere sight of a socket, never mind a spanner. Got one off under its own steam (using vice grips) but had to resort to the drill for the other two. No copper...

  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi guys, So, took the 159 out for a drive yesterday in the sunshine, only to notice that the air con was dead. Driving on the highway one could feel a slight breeze through the vents but in city traffic and at idle nothing at all. Tried different settings, temperatures, fan speeds - nothing...
  8. Alfa 164 & 166
    I noticed my nearside rear camber was pretty bad and that the tyre was more or less bald on the inside edge, so I read all of the 'rear camber' discussions that have gone before on here. This lead me to look at the brackets which hold the dogbone in place on the subframe and compare the...

  12. Introduce Yourself
    Hi, last weekend I bought my first Alfa, its a GT and I love it! I don't know why it has taken me so long. I can't stop looking at it, it is so beautiful. I have read that there a few "characteristics" which are common, and I have some already - creaky suspension and noisy tailgate. I also...

  15. Insurance Section
    There's really good news for many of the members we've previously had to turn down - we've kept on the case with insurers and have been able to negotiate a relaxation of the age & experience criteria for the club scheme. These are the changes from the old requirements where we had them on...
  16. Poll Room
    Hi, So coming from the BMW site i used one good thing about it in my opinion was the big range of ages that were present in the club, it made the forum active with different opinions and was also good at the meets. I was wondering if Alfas manage to pull in the same age range so a quick poll...
