  1. Alternative Phone Holder - TomTom Port

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, Are there any alternative phone holders available which slot into the TomTom port on the dash of a Giulietta? I'm loathe to shell out £50-60 for Alfa's official one, which looks as if it was designed by a 6 year old in the mid 1990s. Alternatively, has anyone come up with any creative...

    Good evening folks, I need to replace my 2002 Spider drivers side door check strap as its making the dreaded clicking opening and closing I’ve searched the forums, and see people have mention Fiat Doblo van or Alfa 156 as alternatives as 916 ones are super expensive. Can anyone who has...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! Just wondering, what with the rarity of new Idle Speed Actuators, if anyone's managed to transplant some other car's or third party throttle body on the GTV?

    General Motoring Discussion
    So my girlfriend is hoping to pass her driving test soon. She wants to get a Renault Clio, because that's the car her instructor has and she likes it / is used to it. My feelings about renault's aside... The trouble is that she's got a budget of about £1000 and for that money it's almost...
  7. Alfa Spider 115 seats 1984 model - Replace/Refurbish or get an alternative seat?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I have a 1984 Spider (115) with the older interior and dash (more like the S2 then later S3's) and the leather seats have lost most of the stitching and also seen better days. Reupholstering and maybe replace some leather is one alternative (possibly expensive) and I know that I can get vinyl...
  8. Brera 2.2 induction kit or alternative ?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Has anyone with a Brera or 159 2.2 fitted an induction kit or anything similar? All I've done so far is put a pipercross air filter in. Would the induction kit sit where the current air filter goes, so if have to remove the housing or could I put it from the air box ? Sorry for being a bit...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  11. Blue & Me Adapter Iphone 6: an alternative?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have a '11 G without the aux input, and thus only the USB that does not work directly with iPhone 6 and up. For music I used the very expensive Blue & Me adapter that needs some tricks in order to work but it did its job up until now... it no longer works... I don't like to spend another 85...

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hello, I have a GT with the colored connect nav+ navigation double din multimedia headunit thing, and very quickly i have realized that it is crap. I don't use CDs (especially non-mp3 ones), the navigation is terrible (and needs a cd inserted, which would eliminate music cd at the same time)...
  14. CF3 V6 MAF - Is there a Vauxhall Donor Alternative?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello All Having gone through the MAF threads, it's clear there is a cheap Vauxhall MAF that contains the right sensor for a CF2 V6 - but no-one mentions the donor of the F 00C 2G2 044 sensor that I need for my CF3. Anyone know which Vauxhall MAF might have one of these hidden away in it's...
  15. 156 face-lift grill alternative?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I was recently browsing online and I came across this on my instagram feed- I think it makes the car look quite striking and modern, and sort of in line with the new Guilietta. The front grill in this 156 SW looks custom, but I've been trying to find one to buy but to no avail. How easy...

    I have a ph1 spider that a previous owner put red GTV seats and door cards into. Only recently I found out that the GTV seats are different inside and don't have the bar that the seat belt fastens to. The seats are in good condition and were repaired and recoloured lately.

  19. Alternative Cars

    General Motoring Discussion
    Killing myself laughing here, MSN have done one their eternally carp "carticles" suggesting alternatives to top brand desirable vehicles, so if you hanker after an M5 their suggestion is a 540i, if you want your old 205GTi back then what about a 309 etc. It's worth a quick blow over if you are...
