    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    D`oh nearly 4 years of ownership and no intermittent electrical faults (a few total failures though :lol:) and now, firstly the immobiliser starts to not pick up the key code, either does it first time, or needs 2 or 3 goes. Then, whilst fiddling with the steering column/cowl the bggering...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    For the third time in about 2000 miles (probably less, actually) I'm driving along and the bl**dy odometer starts flashing at me. Panic sets in and I glance around the cabin, wondering the manner in which the "Alfaness" has manifested itself this time. Lo! My air-con (or climate control unit...
  7. Arrgh- broken again

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 is kind of broken again. After changing the MAF, lambda and coolant sensors and the thermostat, I'm still getting the management light coming on after it's warm. Coupled to that, the radiator has blown. I got the radiator over 18 months ago, but due to engine block problems during the...

    Right, 156GTA or Brera - it comes down to this.... Had a good run out in a 2.2 spider today with mrs simes - and we were shall we say underwhelmed. The roof mechanism is poor especially compared with the competition, the seats are not ones you sit in but on, there was a fair amount of...

  12. Arrgh - Fecking Banks :-(

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Am in foul mood now, so taking out on the board. And it's all frigging Nat West's fault. On Tuesday I got confirmation that the last amount I was waiting for towards the Alfa was ready for collection. Had two options from my customer, a BACS transfer to my account, or they could walk 2...
