  2. Stupid Question Alert!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. I'm new to the Alfa scene but absolutely fallen for them, proper head over heals. I had an Alfa Sprint when I was younger (20 years ago) and I'd totally forgot about it to be honest. I've had 100's of cars though so not surprising really. I recently got a 156 SW 2.0 TS Veloce and I...
  3. Blue & Me TomTom - Speed camera alert

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Like many I've gone for the TomTom option rather than the built in Sat Nav and this comes with a year's free live updates which includes speed camera notifications. This has worked fine for the first feww weeks but has suddenly stopped. I've been on the TomTom support site (no telephone...
  4. Infocentre Service Alert Confusion

    Alfa GTA
    a few days ago i got the "Sheduled Service Within 17 Days" upon starting the car, so i got a couple of quotes for servicing. I just assumed that the car had worked out how many miles i was doing per day and estimated how long it would take to get to zero - service due. I checked the infocentre...

  7. Sorry, couldn't resist.....Beading alert! Beading alert!

    Car Detailing
    After a month of neglect, the 159 got a good wash and wax yesterday. I had clayed the car around 6 weeks ago, and the paint still felt good and smooth, so a wash, dry and a coat of the Megs Wax was all that was required. Only took an hour and the results were, as ever, very satisfying on a...

  10. Convertible top alert (saying it is not closed 100%))

    My Alfa Spider very frequently shows me this alert while driving: "Closing of the convertable top has not completed" (translated from Dutch) When starting to drive everything is fine. Then after driving a while (sometimes a few minutes, sometimes 30 minutes or an hour or 2 hours), this alert...

  15. Hi everyone, newbie alert!

    Introduce Yourself
    Just thought I'd introduce myself. My name's Phil and currently living near Farnham in Surrey. I drive a red Alfa 147, 2.0 and not the dreaded selespeed. I've owned a 147 previously, which was selespeed and I enjoyed it very much, but you can't beat a manual gearbox!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Lost all power in my 1.9jtd GT in the past week. Have had some battery problems and the heater coil light stayed on after ignition once about a week ago. About the same time power has dropped considerably, it revs high but torque and power down. Then today the MCSF alert came on. Would...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Antibes, France to Grenoble, France - Google Maps :p:p:p:p So off the autoroute the 1750 has much more available power in the 50-90kph range and is real fun to blatt past 2-3 cars where the 2.2 could only manage 1-2 for similar gaps in on-coming traffic. :thumbs:
