    General Alfa Discussion
    Cheerful reminder of Alfa, Fiat, Lancia and the lipdud rage : ) https://youtu.be/z4mFZZ7Y4EY
  2. Should have joined ages ago...

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi, Mike here. I’ve got a Giulia Veloce, before that I had a Giulia Super 2.0T, a Giulietta 2.0 jtdm and before that a Giulietta 1.4T. So I’m not new to Alfa Romeo, can’t understand why I didn’t join sooner...
  3. Customer Service from the Dark Ages

    4C & 4C Spider
    Seems like all I ever do is moan about poor service from Alfa but it's really starting to grate... RS (and he knows who is), the supposed "Customer Service" (and I use the term in its loosest sense) Manager for the UK, seems to think it funny to deliberately delay returning my car knowing that...
  4. Spirited Drive for first time in ages

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Had a business trip up to Worcester today, so decided to take the spider for a nice "ahem" run up the M50 from South Wales. Been a while since she's had a proper run for a good hour or more, so loved the hills and playing chase with one or two repmobiles. Best bit was when I went back to the...
  5. car exterior takes ages to dry after rainfall

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I hope this is not a stupid question but ive noticed that after rainfall my car is wet for days whilst other cards have dried out? Im baffled by why this is ? I bought the car a few weeks ago, not sure if it was waxed or not. Anyone have any ideas
  6. Not a Newbie but been ages!

    Introduce Yourself
    Hello Chaps, Not been around here for a long time so thought I would re-introduce myself. I have owned a 156 and a 147 in the past. I also have a passion for VW vans and converting them into campers. Recently moved from England to Quebec and there is a complete lack of interesting vehicles...
  7. Sat nav takes ages to find address

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi, I've got a 2007 159 with the standard Alfa sat nav /phone kit (not blue & me). I actually find it really good except that it sometimes takes forever to enter an address. It seems that anything starting with w or s gives it the biggest problem. As soon as you select a letter, the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    During the last couple of years ive not seen a water pump failure on a twinspark.Ive collected quite a few non runners. Within the last month ive purchased two twinsparks which overheated and another one im repairing for a local guy. All three had water pumps which worked fine off the cambelt...
  10. First time in ages....

    General Alfa Discussion
    Lovely day today here in Plymouth. Literally not a cloud in the sky, sun out and about 10c, so managed to get the lid down on the Spider and go for a nice spin along the coast. Boy, did it feel good :thumbs:
  11. Not washed our cars in ages

    General Alfa Discussion

    Motoring Images

  13. Simple, small jobs that get left for ages...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I bought my 147 from a Volkswagen garage after previous owner had traded it in to them. When they took it in they plastered it with their dealer stickers on boot window, tax disk holder and new number plates all with VW logos all over them. First thing I did when I got the car home was remove...
  14. Not been for a drive in ages!

    General Alfa Discussion
    I've not been out for a decent long, out of town, drive since before Christmas. Tomorrow my 156 is getting spanked all the way to Goodwood and back and then on Sunday she's breaking a world record, and hopefully getting a months-overdue clean beforehand too. Good weekend to own an Alfa :D
  15. What a great site - I haven't laughed so much in ages!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Guys, Sorry for the post and I will probably get my hand slapped:tut: But you guys are great, you really are! I never laughed so much in life reading after reading several posts about changing the clutch in Selespeed. I honestly thought about changing the car with all the woes I had with the...
  16. You wait ages for one then.....

    Alfa MiTo
    you seem to see a new Mito every day! Around the Nantwich area, I had only seen one or two Mito's in the last few months. Yesterday on my drive into Chester and then home again I saw 6 of the little fella's. Dark grey ones, Alfa Red, the black one with the flecks through it, a white one as...

  18. Air vents take AGES to return to face position

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey there My 156 Sportwagon is being a bit... temperamental. We put the air vents onto the window screen setting to defog the screen, but after this we will set it back to pointing at our faces (for lack of a better description) and it will then take its sweet time actually pointing onto our...
  19. Glow plug light takes AGES to go off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My new 156 2.4 JTD takes ages for the Glow Plug light to go off before i can start the engine - when i say ages, i mean at least a minute sometimes:confused: I've got another diesel - a 2005 fiat ducato motorhome - the light goes off almost immediately on that. I wouldn't mind normally but...
  20. Blowers take ages to come on

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My usual winter routine is to let the car warm up a bit and get the blowers on. I turn the first dial (temp) completely into the red, the second dial (blower strength) to 4 and the third dial (setting) to the orange MAX symbol ... then nothing happens until ive been driving for around 5mins then...
