  1. Petty Irritance

  2. My annoyance with electric cars!

    General Motoring Discussion
    Heres what bugs me about electric cars. At what point are we going to stop allowing manufacturers to say their cars are 0g/km CO2! It's total crap. No car produces 0g/km of CO2 as that energy has to come from somewhere in the first place! Smart for example! smart electric drive | electric cars...
  3. door handle annoyance

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi, Noticed my Mito's passenger door handle has come loose from the door and is now secured at one end only (the latch end, fortunately). The pointy end has come away - Seems it's snapped out of the plastic clip which secures it. Anyone else experienced this? Thanks Chris
  4. Canbus power up/down annoyance

    ICE & Blue&Me
    I have a Pioneer GPS head unit (AVIC F900BT) in my Alfa Mito, but am annoyed at one aspect of it; the way it powers on/off. Most modern cars use Canbus, which means the factory radios can be turned on after the car is stopped, or turned off when the car is still running. Aftermarket units...
  5. 159 Rear Ashtray annoyance ha!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everybody, alfa newbie here! Had my 159 a week now and so far really loving it.. I used to be on a forum similar to this when I had my old car and it was invaluable so joined here straight away. OK on to my rather random/pathetic first post.. has anyone had trouble with the rear center...
  6. Reversing sensor annoyance!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Why didn't they link the reversing sensors so that the music/radio mutes when reverse is selected. I like my volume up and I have to mute the music to hear the sensors. Most new cars mute on reverse or at least lower the volume. All the required info is flying around the CAN systems, how hard...
  7. Phase Sensor annoyance!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. Looking for a little help please! I recently bought a 156 a bit too naively. I was told that the light on the dash was a service light and trustingly believed him. I decided to look in my manual and it was in fact the ignitor light. Grrr. Anyway, have had the fault read and apparently...
  8. Flashing Hazard annoyance

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As has been mentioned in previous threads the 159/Brera/Spiders hazard lights flash when braking hard. Over the past couple of weeks this has realy started to annoy me when i go out for a blast around the country lanes and the occasional dual carriageway. Il be doing maybe a steady 60-ish and...
  9. Biggest work annoyance?

    Poll Room
    What's yours?!? :eek:
  10. Aircon annoyance or feature?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My aircon seems to have a mind of it's own, just wondered if it's a fault or a feature of the system. The aircon button is off, if I adjust the temperature dial it sometimes switches itself on. If I switch the car off when the aircon is off, sometimes when I restart it the aircon has decided...
