apologies

  1. Probably done to death so apologies, but, colour combos...

    Alfa Giulia
    .... Anyone who's got the standard red leather with Vesuvio grey Veloce; is it a good match? Would you have it again or would you go black? I'm not a fan of tan so that's out for me, but I'm likely ordering soon and can't find a Giulia at a dealer nearby to check out this combo. I've always had...
  2. Fiat not Alfa- apologies

    General Motoring Discussion
    We run a 2009 fiat 500. Had it five and a bit years and it basically was for the kids to learn to drive in and use as the insurance costs wer sensible and it doesn't cost much to run. Recently it needed a new gearbox- pinion- and a clutch. It is serviced regularly by our local garage and has...
  3. apologies in advance.....

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    hi - I'm sorry to be asking another wheel question but I think I must have "wheel dyslexia"... I know the current trend is for people fitting 17 and above to the gtv but... can any of those with superior understanding of wheel fitment tell me, will the following fit a 2002 Gtv v6 (front...
  4. My apologies

    East Anglia
    Hello Everyone, I was hoping that my Gtv was going to be back on the the road at the beginning of April this year where I could organise more meets and runs in my Alfa. Wouldn't be any good turning up in my Yaris :lol:. When the Gtv is back on the road and with 'Luckydog' helping me get the...
  5. Hello, and apologies in Advance

    Introduce Yourself
    Well, Finally gone and done it and bought my first Alfa at the ripe age of 41. (Me, not the car) Its a 140 2.0TS Lusso Selespeed that I bought "blind" over the internet via another forum I use. Got it cheap as its an MOT failure, but am hoping to get it back on the road when time permits, as...
  6. Apologies ...

    South Africa
    to the gentleman in a 159 coasting past an accident scene in Midrand yesterday evening. He seemed baffled to see two 7 year old girls leaning against the window of a Chev Aveo :vomit:waving and pointing at his car. Trust me I tried to stop them but they could not hear me above the excited noise...

  8. Apologies, Noob question!

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hello to all, first post for me here so go easy! I am collecting my beautiful 159 jtdm later today and unfortunately it does not have the b&me option. It's a Lusso spec but only the standard Lusso spec from 07 so all the gubbins is there but whoever bought the car from new decided not to...
  9. JTD Intercooler Hard Pipe Parties, My Apologies.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    OK the thread began by Gajh for a group buy has been removed, and wrists have been slapped, and whilst there is more sorting out to be done on the subject, i do not want the subject matter itself to die on its backside, but it seems other would prefer it that way. i make my public apology to...
  10. Apologies if this has been spotted before..

    Alfa 164 & 166

  11. Apologies.........

    North West
    To all Alfa owners on the fylde coast i must extend my most sincere apologies, today i was a passenger in my old JTS which now belongs to my sister and was being driven by wifey.........as a laugh and a pish take aimed at moi, she waved in a over vigorous manner at numerous Alfas including ones...
  12. Electric Window Diagnosis (apologies!)

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, I genuinely have exhausted the search option so apologies if this seems like a duplicate post... Just bought a 97 GTV TS and the passenger window doesn't work... when i press the switch there is no movement although i can hear a relay from around the dash area and the headlights...
  13. Apologies.....

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    but the time has come..... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130358568836&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT I am not desperate to sell as I love the car, but i really do not use it enough to justify keeping it. I have a new motorbike every year and should just run an economical day...
  14. Axle stands (apologies - I know its been asked before)

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all Sorry for repeating old thread. Have searched and found loads of info but not a consensus of opinion. How do I jack the car using trolley jack and then transfer to Axle stands. Advise seems to be to put the stands under the main jacking points but how do I get the jack out and the stands...
  15. Another tyre question - apologies

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Sorry about this guys but I have a question ref tyre load ratings. The standard tyres on my 2 tonne 2.2 Brera are 215/55 R16 93V or 235/45 R18 98W . Would there be any technical problem in using 235/45 R18 94Y tyres ? R16 93's are rated at 650kg per corner / 2600kg per car. R18 94's are...
  16. Ulpian: apologies

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, I was so busy posting immediately after I signed on (I had to go to work) that I had no time to introduce myself. I love Fiats, which means Italian cars in general, and therefore Alfas. My dream would be to own a 1938 8c with a body by Touring on a lungo chassis. Nothing much then!
  17. Apologies. Fuel economy. Boring!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    we all know that petrol powered Alfa's arent the most economical of machines on the road, especially the V6 ones! i been using my TS for work this week as opposed to the V6, mainly to see how vast the difference in economy was between the 2. i do about 108 miles a day for work and its quite...
  18. Apologies for another newbie Selespeed G'box Issue!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok had my 156 selespeed since November 2006. It had......reputedly, new actuators and gearbox work just before i had it. With this i felt more at ease buying it! Its been realtively trouble free, just the usual car niggles. But i fear its all about to change! On Saturday it decided-after a...
  19. Yet another broken electrical aerial thread! Apologies.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi there, My girlfriend picked up her new GTV V6 up at the weekend (will post pics soon), but has the fairly standard inoperable radio mast problem. Had a new stereo fitted on Saturday and the technician confirmed that there is power going to the aerial just no response from the aerial...
  20. Apologies in Advance - Air Conditioning Thread!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Sportwagon 156 JTD 2.4 2001. Thought it might be useful to have a check list - to narrow down possibilities of whats wrong. Symptoms are: Blower works fine, hot air fine, but no cold air. All aircon lights are working. I do NOT hear the revs dip when I press the aircon button - although I...
