  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, I think I know the answer to this ... but... from a basic oil & filter type service would it make that much difference to the service history going to a more general garage over an alfa specialist service for this job? I understand cambelts and bigger jobs must be Alfa specialist...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I'm looking around for a 159 SW and I'm on a bit of a tight budget but saw this: Motors.co.uk - it's down in Surrey. I'd need to travel over a 100 miles to view/drive it and I'm torn... Any thoughts? Anyone near it who would give it a quick look? I know it's a bit cheeky but they say you...
  3. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi all, I've slightly tuned my 156 within the ECU limits. SOI goes to 70 mg/stroke and most limiters were at arround 55 mg/stroke, so I upped every limiter and map to inject a max. of 70. I've very slightly increased RP and boost. I do not want the maximum torque and hp, but it would be nice...

  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm interested in adding some soundproofing to my 156 v6. My priorities are road and wind noise. Definitely dont wanna cut out engine noise! I reckon just floors and doors should be enough for road noise, but what about wind noise? Any thoughts?
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, bought my first Alfa at the weekend, a diesel GT Cloverleaf. I literally couldn't be happier with how the car looks, I think all GT's look stunning and I'm actually looking forward to cleaning it again. Just a couple of small queries that I'd like to clear up if anyone can help...
  7. The Technology Section
    Time to upgrade my old Dell 530, what would anyone reccommend for a basic bit of desktop kit? The current Vista Crate will be retained (might get a Linux version going on it) and the new desktop is going to be little more than a web browser with the odd office app, plus pictures. Looking at...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Everything was working but I came across some new bulbs so I decided to replace them, what a mistake! The left side is now not working and I have tried bulb replacement, other bulb holders, I have had indicators working, not working now working but I am also now without a rear left number plate...

    My current home PC is getting on a bit, and has recently started playing up so I think it is about time that I bought a new one. I don't do gaming so I would be looking for something pretty basic, 500GB Hard drive, Windows 8 and at least 4GB RAM would be sufficient. I also already have a...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, all. I feel a bit daft asking this question, but the lack of help on the K&N website has left me paranoid... Is the air filter on the Ducati Corse different from a standard JTD engine air filter? I'm just wanting to get one of the K&N "million mile" high air flow jobbies that worked so...
  11. General Motoring Discussion
    Last night when walking towards my front door my neighbour who was sitting in his car waiting for me having seen me at the top of the road walking my dog asked me if I had friends in earlier as they had blocked his drive. At first I said no but remembered my sons friend had came to pick him up (...

    Any recommendations for a good basic domain name hosting company? I have two domains which I pretty much only use for email (which is hosted by Google mail anyway so I need to be able to alter the MX settings) but might want a bit of personal storage space or for web photo galleries etc. The...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi chaps, sorry to ask such questions but feel a bit lost: I've been taking too long getting a set but they all seem expensive... is this one good for basic/general car stuff?

  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Sorry for posting this here but I've asked on the B&M forum and on second thoughts think that this is too basic a question to ask on there and not sure anyone on that forum is going to be interested in such a simple problem. I can't get Blue and Me to start up at all. All I want to do is play...

The wire which clips to the stock woofer via a yellow clip, can I just cut off the clip and use them wires to connect to the crossover then connect...
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, this may well be a very basic question but please remember you're dealing with an idiot. Bought the car a month or so ago and based on what I've read have been carefully checking the oil every week. Done about 700 miles and so far no dip in the level, it was serviced in December but the oil...
