  1. 1.9 JTD running like arse

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My JTD is running like a rectum. Starts fine but smokes heavily, plenty of blue/white smoke. Has no pick up either, really lumpy and blowing plumes of smoke until the turbo spools up. It's fine while on boost and goes back to lumpyness when it spools down. This is happening out of gear under no...

  5. Pain in the arse head unit and speaker

    ICE & Blue&Me
    I'm having a few problems with the sound system in the 147. First - The HU has a tendency to search for other frequencies to those stored in the presets, even when the signal strength is good. This is proving quite annoying! Second - The steering wheel controls have a habit of performing the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right I was driving happily home last night and i was behind a ice cream van. Anyway the ice cream van decided to go under a bridge which was too low for it and because i was behind it, parts of his roof came off and smashed into my car. If that wasnt bad enough, he just carried on driving...

    :mad: Yes I am an arse of the highest order. I ran out of diesel in my 156 a few weeks ago.

Have I done some real damage here or can it all be sorted...
