    Hi all Looking for advice. I'm moving to Canada at the end of the year and therefore I have to sell my G. It pains me to do it, but I don't have a choice. 66 plate 2.0 diesel, 34,200 miles. I've had an ad upon on autotrader for a bit (albeit not long) and haven't had any interest. It is...

    Greetings to all, I am deciding to change the engine oil on my 1.9. JTDM 2008. I Prefer to do myself, ( it's done with a good flush & I'll use Quality filters & Oils ) Only issue is the Oil change light coming on after the engine oil change. Could I Disconect the battery? Then Connect...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, Sorry for the multiple posts about cars I'm looking at buying, but I don't want to end up buying a pup of an Alfa GT! I'm looking at the following car, which seems great, apart from the final line in the description: "Bad point of the car is it has an intermittent air bag light...

    Thought I would share my recent experience of trying to get a key refurbed. Sent it to autotronics, £35 + vat and delivery + £10 for case. Paid £60, key returned after 10 days. Didn't work, no explanation of repairs carried out. Invoice stated that key may need re-syncing. Fair enough. Emailed...

    Hello folks, My 147 DC has hit 100K and as the timing belt and waterpump was done around 50K I'm looking to replace it soon. Does anyone have any recommendations on brands? Having a look on Eurocarparts and Mister Auto there's all sorts of brands, most I haven't heard of.. Any to avoid or go...
  6. Alfa GTA
    I'm in a rather unpleasant position where my 156 GTA SW has been off the road for over a year now, so I'm coming under pressure from my other half to get rid of it since I obviously don't need it :( I took it off the road in Dec 2015 to sort out a nasty pull to one side and clunking suspension...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So after a few months of weird problems related with coolant/power loss, and lately overheating, they lifted the head and it was cracked. No remaps, all stock, I only blanked EGR when I bought it. Everything is already there...
  8. General Alfa Discussion
    Should have known better but bought what I thought was a Momo gear knob from these asshats, which turned out to be a cheap nasty worthless chinese knockoff. Of course they won't answer emails and have basically just stolen my money. Avoid this place if you're looking for a gear knob or steering...
  9. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, this is just a quick fix i did and if anyone experiences the same problem i did then hopefully this will help them. Even though the weather is 'currently' ok here in the UK, I'm fed up of the foot slipping off the clutch pedal when wet so a previous mission was to 'grip tape' the clutch...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys - i'm looking for a runabout at the moment having sold my GTA recently, before deciding what to do next i'm looking at a cheap 147. I called up about a Selespeed 147. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121687064546?_trksid=p2060353.m1431.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Owner was a bit...

    A garage in Lancashire has a red 147 Q2 for sale YL57LSF. There is water damage inside, the driver footwell is soaked and there is silicon sealant all over the bulkhead to attempt to seal it. The leather handles and gaitors have degraded due to the damp in the cockpit. Just a heads up for...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just thought I would stick this here in the hope a potential buyer gets scared off of this car. A white GT has been to Neil at Italia Auto Parts to sort an ABS issue. The car has been in an accident and to put it nicely, has been badly repaired. Neil has refused to work on the car as it...
  13. Alfa GTA
    Messed me around massively. Item was completely different from the picture that he sent me. Ended up with a paypal dispute as he refused to go collect it from the post office. Then as he lost the dispute on paypal he started phantom bidding on my ebay listings and not paying but then leaving...
  14. Alfa MiTo
    Purchased a 2010 1.4 TB MultiAir Veloce in Etna black with just 10k on it two days ago. I was aware of the drain issue with regard to the alternator, but couldn't quite notice if it had the modification when I had a quick look under the bonnet when I viewed it. However, I wasn't concerned...

    As a heads up for anyone looking at the moment: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alfa-Romeo-Spider-2-4JTDM-/171300664057?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item27e250b2f9 DO NOT WANT! I was the 1st owner of this car back in 2007, and due to multiple persistent and unsolvable faults it was bought back by Alfa UK...

    Hello all, Thought I ought to warn fellow forum members to avoid bidding on this outfits listings; in the past two weeks I have bid on two listings for an alloy 156 V6 alloy race rad, only to find the listing cancelled on the last day, due to ' an error in the listing'. This then reappears on...
