    Was at the petrol pump this afternoon and this friendly chap approached me and complimented my Bella. She is pigging dirty i said, thanks but she needs a good clean. His wife then asked if she could sit in the car and i left them to it and went in and paid for fuel. On returning to car i was...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Many thanks for all the replys to my thread as mentioed i had already test driven both the Brera 2.2 and V6 and although i liked the 2.2 i decided that the 3.2 fitted much better with what i thought the car was a GT rather than sports car. However i did enjoy the 2.2 and whereas the 3.2 felt...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So when I bought my car I had to wait over a weekend to get it. However on the saturday morning, still a bit drunk/hungover I put an excessively large max bid on a steinbauer pbox (tuning box). Long story short I won it, thankfully at significantly less than my semi-drunk self was willing to...

  10. 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...
  11. General Alfa Discussion
    Ok let's say your car is in an underground carpark. Use the remote control to unlock it and work out how far from the car it kicks in. Next walk back and place the remote control fob pressing on your head above your ear and you'll find that you can trigger the remote locking from almost double...
  12. Alfa MiTo
    But what fuel consumption are you getting from your Mito?? On the other threat below there were some difference in opinion and I was just curious to what your getting.

  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Would any of you be interested if I were to piece together a thread with a list of FAQ's, things like Heater Problems, window problems and then ask Admin to make it a sticky topic? By this I mean that whenever I come across a thread which seems relevant I would add the link to the FAQ list.
  15. Alfa 164 & 166

  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    why did Alfa decide to build the twin spark as opposed to most other engines that seem to do ok with 4 sparking plugs? I've been scouring web pages for a while now and cant seem to find an answer to satisfy my thirst for knowlege. Just wondering if anyone had any insight into the engine...
