  1. Alfas on dashcam

    General Alfa Discussion
    So I occasionally look at dashcam footage and sometimes see an Alfa in the midst of the action ( or even parked at the side of the road ). It isn't very often that an Alfa features ( unlike some other brands ) so I thought a thread to highlight them may be entertaining. I recall an Australian...
  2. Look what Alfas relatives are up to

    General Alfa Discussion
    So in touch are the American bit of FCA they have just launched a 1000horsepower engine.. https://www.todaysmotorvehicles.com/article/fca-hellephant-hemi-engine-sema-110118/
  3. alfas 2.2 Diesel engine.

    Alfa Giulia
    A friend told me yesterday this engine is shared with the Mercedes engine as they both have the same cc 2143. Is this correct as i thought alfa made their own engines?
  4. Yellow Alfas!

    General Alfa Discussion
    Why doesn't Alfa offer any cars in yellow? I thought it was the colour of Modena and yet only Lamborghini and Ferrari offer the colour? Maybe I answered my own question but it does seem odd that there are no Fiat/Alfa options?
  5. Fog light bulb shopping - Sumex Yellow ALFAS 2800K 85W?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am keen to upgrade the fog lights on my 147. Does anyone have experience with these Sumex Yellow ALFAS 2800K 85W bulbs or Sumex bulbs more generally? The ALFAS in the name is purely coincidental, BTW...
  6. Fraudulent ebay ad for Alfas etc

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi all, just wanted to give a heads up for a live fraudulent advertiser on ebay, seller kej999 who is currently supposedly selling various Alfas on ebay e.g. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ALFA-ROMEO-2000-SPIDER-VELOCE/163368392063?hash=item260983d57f:g:59YAAOSwXKtb6J9a:rk:1:pf:0 If you look at...
  7. Unreliable Alfas

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Not in my experience.... A quarter of a million miles and still returning mid to high 50s on the daily commute (it was reading over 57mpg before I drove round the block five times to get it to hit 250,000) One in the face for Germanic reliability....

  9. Alfas are the best

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi I have just joined the Club and have a 2003 Alfa 156 in red. She just passed her MOT with no advisories for the 2nd year running, so I intend to keep her as long as possible. I did over 3000 miles in France, Italy and Austria last year and she ran faultlessly and I have since fitted a new...
  10. Alfas in Rhodes

    General Alfa Discussion
    Just got back from a holiday in Rhodes, and noticed there were an awful lot of 147s there, but not much else. Totals were: Hundreds of 147s - outnumbered almost every other car type! 1 x 156 1 x 70s Nuovo-Giulietta in someone's back garden, which had somehow managed to rust badly despite the...
  11. 24 Years between Alfas! GTV 2.0 to 2018 Giulia Veloce & Stelvio - Melbourne Australia

    Introduce Yourself
    24 Years between Alfas! GTV 2.0 to 2018 Giulia Veloce & Stelvio - Melbourne Australia Well, my first car was a '79 Alfa GTV 2.0 that I loved more than anything. I adored the brand and drove it with pride. Like a lot of us I suspect, the years ticked over and the Alfa brand went into...
  12. Alfas going at jet speed

    General Alfa Discussion
    Well almost, there seems to be two Giulias on the ground, a Stelvio being loaded on and a Jeep onboard. No wonder they can't find all the missing Alfas at the port... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/business-44863988/business-booming-for-giant-cargo-planes
  13. Breakdown cover for new Alfas

    Alfa Giulia
    Am buying a new QF - which I believe comes with 3 year no mileage warranty including breakdown cover? I was just wondering if anyone has had to use their breakdown cover yet.... and if so, who is it provided by? Is it Europe wide cover? I was wondering because for about a £200 per annum...
  14. Alfas open doors (well, gates....)

    General Alfa Discussion
    So, with the Giulia Veloce only being weeks old I chose to drive from Leicester to London for last night’s Morrissey gig, a chance for a good long drive in it. On a Friday. During the evening rush hour. Anyway, to cut a long story short it took 3 hours to get to Newport Pagnell where we...
  15. No more diesel Alfas.

    General Alfa Discussion
    No more Alfa diesels Or any other FCA diesel for that matter! Quite surprised at how quickly. MILAN -- Fiat Chrysler Automobiles plans to eliminate diesel from all its passenger vehicles by 2022, amid a collapse in demand and spiraling costs, the Financial Times reported. Under a four-year...

  17. Sick of Alfas?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Lads, I have been an alfa fan for years now and own a few, the alfa sud has always been my favourite car, however I took a drive in a friends Prius and even I have to admit that the comfort, quietness and admiring glances from the ladies have made me re-think my car. I never thought I would...
