New member, new owner.
I have just acquired my first Alfa.
It is a 2006 159, 3.2 Manual, JTS Q4, in black.
It has the 19" wheels, and possibly a few other upgrades.
It came with rear mufflers deleted, some alloy pipework and pod filter for the inlet, a pioneer bluetooth head unit.
After 4 months of searching, I finally found the G I was after for my wife to run around in during the week and my hot hatch on weekends. The hot hatch we chose had to be auto, punchy, bluetooth enabled, cruise, gps, stylish, have parking sensors, less than 90,000ks and less than 15-18k AUD...
I am not new to Alfa or front wheel drive my dad gave me one for my 3rd birthday but this one has 4 wheels not 3. After years of faithful service my 74GTV 2l is in the shop having a long overdue tidy up and my 69 Spider is on club registration so the 147 was the obvious choice to get me around...
Ok so, I'm about to emigrate to Melbourne.
I love my car and I'm struggling with the idea of selling it.
Its a 2006 Brera in fantastic condition. I have been quoted a sensible price to get it to Aus including all port fees and taxes the other end.
Is there good Alfa support in Aus and is there...
My name is Sam, I'm 22 years old and I'm from Gold Coast, Australia.
I have just taken ownership of a 147 JTDm.
As I know essentially nothing about diesels and there isn't a great deal of info about the JTD engine floating around on the internet, expect me to be logged into this...
We have bought an Alfa, so here I am!
A lifetime of really only knowing about the supposed Alfa reliability "issues", being the son of motor mechanic with a love of Aussie muscle (and small British Fords but that is another story), my wife thought a Giulietta Progression was a...
After some small experience with fiberglass the other week I decided to revive the GTV diffuser project started here -
I really think they look brilliant and decided to make one myself (teach myself a...
Intoducing myself and the passion for my alfa:
Im from the western suburbs of melbourne, my father is of australian and english background and my mother of italian, I am 26 years of age. I work at a hardware store and at the bank.
My love for Alfas started when I was young when my uncle bought a...
1st time Alfa owner (159 JTD 2.4 Ti), and very inexperienced driving diesels. Always drove VW (Golf GTi) and other petrols (turbo charged) and 4 WDs and have no idea of the 'tricks' of driving and getting the most out of this (at first experience) rather sluggish engine, particularly on...
My name's Keiran, I have recently purchased a 1999 156 Alfa Romeo. It is beautiful car with a lovely interior and a real eye catcher where I live in Townsville, QLD in Australia. It's pretty rare to see an Alfa around my parts and its not the fastest car, but it's lovely to drive.
Hi All, Ive just bought a project spider... the past few owners have run her hard and put her away wet and its starting to show. So Ive bought cheap and withing much service history and am embarking on a project to make her roar again!
Here is a pic, looks ok from 10 paces... but defo needs...
Howdy, I am emigrating to Aus within the next 18mths, so I am looking at either taking my motor or picking one up out there. So couple of questions, are there any in Aus? How much do they go for (ball park) and are there any Alfa dealers?
I know this is probably in the wrong section but we do...

its been quite some time since I have visited these forums, and I feel a bit bad returning after some time to ask for help, but sadly the other night someone reversed into my 147.
The front bumper is dented and inital looks indicate that the radiator support beam is bent and one...
Hope you all had a great festive season and celebrated the new year in style.
I got back from Australia on Christmas day but have just been too busy to check the forum.
How's everyone doing? Any big news on the car/personal front from anyone that I should be aware of?
I have a...

Hi to all,
Moved to Cologne, Germany over a year ago now and have to be honest that I'm not missing the UK one bit! (Well apart from proper bacon, mature cheddar and Ginters sausage rolls!)
Brought myself a Spider 916, (1995 2.0 TS) and once again have discovered the joys of motoring :lol: and...
