backwards

  1. 1st gear engaged (selespeed), but car moving backwards

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I was reading through the posts, but I couldn't find anything close to what it is happening to my Alfa. Some months ago "Check Gearbox" message started showing up, by that time the gearbox didn't let me select any speed and just remained in N. I took it to the dealer, who told me that...
  2. Alfa 155 8v TS backwards convertion

    Alfa 155
    Hi there, have been lurking around here on alfabb for ages but now i finally created an account My pondering goes to my 1.8 8v engine wich i want to make oldschool. The engine itself is amazing, but the half-fancy emission control system and the motronic 1.7 is killing me. I have been looking...
  3. Forwards or Backwards?

    General Motoring Discussion
    When your parking, do you go in forwards or backwards? I now pretty much always go in backwards. My old car was alot smaller than the 159 so would swing in forwards much easier, plus if i reverse in people get to see the beautiful front of my Alfa :lol:
  4. Can you move the engine backwards ?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi Crazy question time: in a 156 GTA, can you move the starter and alternator to the front, and move the engine further back ? Anyone done it ?

  6. Gear stick leaps forwards and backwards.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A while back, noticed my gearstick leapt around a bit when I either stamped on the gas or let go suddenly. More so than any other car. Replaced the upper engine stabiliser as the rubber was shot but did not replace the bush on the engine. How easy is it to do this one? Can it be done DIY with...
  7. Going Backwards???

    Alfa MiTo
    Ok so I'm getting impatient now after 5 weeks from ordering my 120tb veloce. At the beginning when i ordered i was told end of april colection date, but then 2 weeks ago i got a call from mango's saying my car had gone into production a lot quicker than expected and had been started so was in...
  8. Backwards Glance

    General Alfa Discussion
    I am I the only one to look back at my bella Alfa EVERY time I park her up? I tried not to a couple of times but I just couldn't do it. My wife now says "it's still there, you know!" everytime she catches me. No other car looks sooooooo good.:cool: Also the other day when I was coming back...

  10. Backwards up a steep verge

    Alfa 164 & 166
    not me fortunately but taking the gf to the train station this morning i saw a proteo red 166 backwards up a very steep verge with skidmarks all over the road just coming off a roundabout about a mile from my house, very unusual for a fwd car to lose it off a roundabout, even in the wet. im...
  11. Forwards or backwards

    Poll Room
    How do you go into a parking space, forwards or backwards? And I mean a standard car park space, not on-street or diagonal. I'm a reverser, because: - it's easier to judge width by looking in your wing mirrors - it's easier leave the space by driving forwards (you can more easily see whats...
  12. <75> My brake lights have gone a bit backwards

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    <Alfa 75> Erm, my brake lights stay on when the brakes aren't on, and turn off when I press the brake pedal. :lol: Just started happening today, no idea why. I'm about to go pull out the brake light switch to check it but if anyone has any other ideas please post em. :) Thanks
